For every series of novels that are successfully translated on the big screen, like LORD OF THE RINGS or HARRY POTTER, there are countless others who can’t make it to the finish line. A decade ago, 20th Century Fox released PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE LIGHTNING THIEF, an adaptation of the first novel in the Rick Riordan series, and although the film worked well enough to generate a sequel, PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS, the franchise quickly vanishes.

Although the PERCY JACKSON franchise needs to be restarted as a Disney + TV series, Rick Riordan still suffers from the way previous films have put his life to work ” through the meat grinder.“When a fan contacted Riordan on Twitter about censorship of the first film on Disney +, Riordan responded with a succinct disassembly of the film.

When a fan replied to the above tweet saying, ” It’s refreshing that Uncle Rick hates PJo movies even more than we do,“Riordan said,”Well, for you, it’s a few hours of entertainment. For me, it’s my life’s job to go through a meat grinder when I begged them not to. So here is. But it is okay. Everything is fine. We will fix it soon. . .“Riordan continued,”Finally, I still haven’t seen the movies and I don’t plan to do so. I judge them to have read the scripts because I care most about the story. I certainly have nothing against very talented actors. Not their fault. I’m just sorry they got caught up in this mess.“Although Riordan does not hesitate to express his aversion to the PERCY JACKSON films, it seems that he will be more involved in the television series. When the project was first announced last month, Riordan said, “We are very excited about the highest quality live action series, following the script for Percy Jackson’s original five-book series, starting with The Lightning Thief in the first season.“We hope the TV series is doing better.
