Disney+ has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Percy Jackson and the Olympians,  a TV adaptation of Rick Riordan’s classic novel series. The story follows the 12-year-old demigod Percy Jackson, son of Poseidon, who’s accused by Zeus of stealing his lightning bolt. Walker Scobell from Netflix‘s The Adam Project assumes the role of Jackson and is pictured walking through the demigod training facility, Camp Half-Blood, ending up on the steps of the Poseidon cabin.

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters — the first and second books from the series — were adapted into full-length films back in 2010 and 2013 with little to no creative control from Rick Riordan. The upcoming Disney+ series will be different as Riordan leads the project alongside Jonathan Steinberg and Dan Shotz.

“This show is the most ambitious project any of us have ever done, even for our seasoned and experienced team members. A hugedem number of sets. Complicated special effects. Young actors leading the show. That all takes time. But the payoff will be worth it. I am confident of that,” writes Riordan via Collider

Take a first look at the series above and stay tuned for more release details.
