‘Percy Jackson and the Olympians’ trailer promises magic, myths, and monsters

All right Percy Jackson fans: Grab your ballpoint pen swords and your invisibility caps, and brace yourselves for the latest trailer for Disney’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

Season 1 of the upcoming series adapts Rick Riordan’s The Lightning Thief, which was infamously adapted into a movie that book readers no longer wish to acknowledge. Lucky for us, Percy Jackson and the Olympians appears to be sticking more closely to the source material — with promising results. Check out the terrifying minotaur chase sequence, or the sneak peeks of the iconic capture the flag scene!

Aside from teasing well-known sections of The Lightning Thief, this new trailer gives us a crash course in all things Percy Jackson (Walker Scobell). He’s a 12-year-old demigod who must go on a quest to recover Zeus’s (Lance Reddick) stolen Master Bolt from a mysterious thief. Along the way, Percy and his new friends Annabeth (Leah Sava Jeffries) and Grover (Aryan Simhadri) will encounter ancient monsters, powerful magic, and enough Greek gods to make Homer jealous. Percy may never have wanted to be a demigod, but I’ve never been more excited to relive my childhood obsession.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians premieres Dec. 20 on Disney+.
