Percy Jackson and the Olympians is a book series that is popular for kids and for teens. The book series is written by the author who is named Rick Riordan.
Rick Riordan’s popular books sparked interest with Disney executives for them to make a television series based off of Riordan’s novels.
Now, things are finally getting underway. Disney and Riordan decided on a list of actors and actresses to play the iconic Percy Jackson characters. Check-it-out below:
