The Disney+ series “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” made its New York Comic-Con debut this month, and though no actors were present, the panel revealed first images of many of the guest actors in character.
During the New York Comic-Con panel, author and series executive producer Rick Riordan, along with fellow executive producer Rebecca Riordan, revealed actor/character images and more.
The actors themselves couldn’t appear due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike.
The panel also showcased an in-depth conversation with series executive producers Jon Steinberg, Dan Shotz, and James Bobin, who also directed the first two episodes. They were joined by four members of the production team, production designer Dan Hennah, costume designer Tish Monaghan, VFX supervisor Erik Henry and ILM VFX supervisor Jeff White.
The eight-episode series launches with a two-episode premiere on December 20th on Disney+, followed by new episodes weekly.
Up to now, we’ve mainly seen the main trio in scenes from the series: Percy (Walker Scobell), Grover (Aryan Simhadri), and Annabeth (Leah Sava Jeffries).
Here is a look at the guest cast, and the characters they will play:
Based on the best-selling book series by author Rick Riordan, “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” follows 12-year old demi-god Percy Jackson (Walker Scobell) who is just coming to terms with his newfound divine powers as the son of Poseidon (Toby Stephens) when the sky god Zeus (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.
