Welcome to Camp Half-Blood, demigods.
Walker Scobell is a snarky, tween demigod-in-training in the BC-filmed Percy Jackson and the Olympians,, premiering December 20th on Disney+.
Based on Rick Riordan’s best-selling book series, 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 supernatural powers when the sky god Zeus (the late great 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.
