It’s official! Disney+ is already working to adapt Rick Riordan’s hit novel series, Percy Jackson. What’s more, it is now coming as five-part series, with each part following each of the five books. In an announcement video last week, author Rick Riordan took to Twitter to confirm what fans had been guessing for a while.

For the last few months, Riordan’s wife, who was also present in the video, had been sharing posts with #DisneyAdaptPercyJackson. Even the announcement post had the same hashtag, along with a short statement that Riordan and his wife would be closely associated with the series adaptation this time.

A quick recap, the 2005 novel series was first adapted into two full-length films. While the first one received good response, the second one crippled its fans with disappointment after attempting to mash the remaining four books into one in the worst possible way.

This is why Riordan’s assurance comes as a relief to fans who have been pouring their hearts out with ‘What We Want From New Series’ videos and posts all over the internet.

A majority of fans wanted a young and unknown hero to play Percy Jackson and his team of Demi-Gods. Others wanted the LGBTQ representation and racial inclusivity in the books to carry forward in the series.

They also demanded the portrayal of mental health issues like ADHD and Dyslexia, which was largely absent from the film adaptations.

However, some wanted Logan Lerman, who played Percy in the 2013 Sea Of Monsters, to have a cameo while others wanted the gods to be played by big names like Pierce Brosnan, Sean Bean, or Uma Thurman.

The five-part fantasy series consists of, The Lightning Thief, which came out in 2005 and published millions of copies, The Sea of Monsters then came out in 2006, The Titan’s Curse in 2007, The Battle of the Labyrinth in 2008, and finally, The Last Olympian in 2009.
