Welcome to Camp Half-Blood, demigods!
After four years of work, I am delighted to announce that the first two episodes of Percy Jackson and the Olympians are NOW streaming on Disney+, and the first episode is also available on Hulu. The early reviews have been incredible. 97% certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes? I mean . . . that’s beyond my wildest hopes, but this cast and crew worked very hard to make it this good.
Becky and I are just back from an intensive press junket and premieres in New York and London, where we had the pleasure of hanging out with our stellar team to celebrate this show. Here are some photos to give you a glimpse of the festivities!
Becky and I arrive at the Met in NYC for the premiere.
Olivea Morton (aka Nancy Bobofit) arrives at the Met and is NOT pushed into a fountain!
Timothy Omundson (Hephaestus) looking distinguished and powerful!
Jason Mantzoukas (Dionysus) giving you that “I may turn you into a dolphin now” look.
Adam Copeland, Lord Ares himself, bringing his top-tier hat game to the battle (er, premiere).
Glynn Turman (Chiron), trainer of heroes, award-winning rodeo cowboy, acting legend!
Virginia Kull (Sally Jackson) — your mom faves could never!
The squad (Aryan, Leah and Walker) arriving to handle all your monster-vanquishing needs.
Enjoy the show, my friends! This is a winter solstice we’ve been waiting to celebrate for a long, long time.
