Disney+ has just debuted the first look teaser trailer for Percy Jackson and the Olympians, which features the return of Percy Jackson. Walter Scobell, Aryan Simhadri, and Leah Sava Jeffries—three of the series’ stars—introduced the footage at the D23 Expo. View the teaser video up top.
I didn’t want to be a half-blood, you see. Being a half-blood is risky, scary, and almost often results in death, Jackson explains in the video. “Turn away while you can if you think you could be one of us,” the speaker said.
The new Disney+ original Percy Jackson and the Olympians, which is based on the Rick Riordan book series, tells the fantastical tale of Percy Jackson, a 12-year-old modern demigod who is just coming to terms with his newly discovered supernatural abilities when the sky god Zeus accuses him of stealing his master lightning bolt. In order to locate it and put Olympus back in order, Percy must now go throughout America.
