When the first teaser was released, the hearts of many readers fluttered as Percy Jackson and the Olympians will be having another chance on screen with the series reboot on Disney Plus and just after the D23 presentation, Rick Riordan, himself, shares that the production is now back on track.
The teaser of Percy Jackson and the Olympians has brought back a lot of the fans and readers of the novel of the same name back to Camp Half-Blood to re-live what it is like to be a child of one of the gods. After a busy D23 weekend, everyone is now back to the production of the series.

"The reaction to the Percy Jackson trailer was incredible, both at the convention and online. And as I’ve said before, the really exciting thing is that this trailer is just the tiniest glimpse! Wait until you see what else we’ve got cooking," Riordan said.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians will be given new life in a series on Disney Plus which will follow the titular half-blood as he discovers more about his lineage and how dangerous it is to be a son of the big three Greek gods.
