Lance Reddick as Zeus & Toby Stephens as Percy’s Dad Poseidon are the Big Gods on PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS
Lance Reddick as Zeus, God of the Sky and Toby Stephens as Percy’s father Poseidon, God of the Sea. are the Big Gods on Percy Jackson and the Olympians, which is days away from wrapping season one.
The all-powerful god of the sky and leader of Mount Olympus, Zeus (Lance Reddick) is tempestuous and mistrustful. He’s promised to wage a war if his stolen thunderbolt is not returned.
Although seemingly absent in Percy (Walker Scobell)’s life, many of Poseidon (Toby Stephens)’s qualities live in Percy; stubbornness, impulsiveness and loyalty. Though he has stayed away throughout Percy’s life, his deep feelings for his son (and Percy’s mother, Sally) are evident.
Based on Rick Riordan’s best-selling book series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians tells the story of a 12-year-old modern demigod, Percy Jackson (Walker Scobell), who’s just coming to terms with his newfound divine powers when the sky god Zeus (Lance Reddick) accuses him of stealing his master lightning bolt. With help from his friends Grover (Aryan Simhadri) and Annabeth (Leah Sava Jeffries), Percy must embark on an adventure of a lifetime to find it and restore order to Olympus.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians teaser featured Percy Jackson warning other Half-Bloods as he walks through the Camp Half-Blood set that production built in Aldergrove, east of Vancouver.
Look I didn’t want to be a Half-Blood. Being a Half-Blood is dangerous. It’s scary. Most of the time it gets you killed. If you think you might be one of us my advice is turn away while you still can. Believe whatever lie your Mom or Dad told you about your birth. Try to live a normal life. — Percy Jackson.
Because once you know what you are they’ll sense it too and they’ll come for you. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. — Percy Jackson.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians built a Camp Half-Blood set in Aldergrove on about 20 acres of private land with forest at the corner of 256th Street and 24th Avenue, according to neighbour Shelly W./@kidswap
