What is Percy Jackson and the Olympians about?
Percy Jackson and the Olympians (Percy Jackson and the Olympians) consists of five books and several spin-offs, a huge success capable of selling more than 45 million units worldwide since the premiere of the first of the books, The Lightning Thief, in 2005. The protagonist is none other than Percy Jackson, son of the Greek god of the sea and earthquakes, Poseidon.
After discovering that all the myths of ancient Greece are a reality and that the gods are on the 600th floor of the Empire State Building in New York, Percy will embark on all kinds of adventures with clear inspirations in Greek mythology, only based on nowadays. One of the main adversities comes when Zeus, god of the sky, accuses him of having stolen his master bolt. This is how he will begin his journey across America in search of that precious object.
Percy Jackson has already had a presence in the cinema years ago with releases such as Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief in 2010 and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters in 2013.
