PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS With Walker Scobell Starts Filming in Vancouver
This is it, demigods! Here in Vancouver, we have all hands on deck for the first day of filming on Percy Jackson and the Olympians. The excitement is so thick you could cut it with a celestial bronze ballpoint pen! — Rick Riordan.
Disney+’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians series with Walker Scobell has started filming in Vancouver.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians tells the fantastical 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 accuses him of stealing his master lightning bolt. With help from his friends Annabeth (Leah Sava Jeffries) and Grover (Aryan Simhadri), Percy must embark on an adventure of a lifetime to find it and restore order to Olympus.
Rick Riordan, author of the mega-selling book series, announced some of the new adult cast from set.
