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
