We are delighted to share the news that Disney+’s upcoming “Percy Jackson” series has just added two very important characters.
Aryan Simhadri (“Cheaper by the Dozen“) play satyr Grover Underwood, Percy’s best friend and protector. Leah Sava Jeffries (“Empire“) will play Annabeth Chase, daughter of Athena, friend of Percy and Grover.
It was previously announced that Walker Scobell (“The Adam Project“) will lead the series as Percy.
Author Rick Riordan has been highly positive about the Disney+ adaptation so far, which gives us a lot of hope. He’s even writing the pilot!
We don’t have a likely release date yet, but we’ll let you know what we hear about this and other news.
