On December 20, the first two episodes of the series will premiere on Disney+. Afterwards, new episodes will drop weekly on the platform.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians tells the fantastical story of a 12-year-old modern demigod, Percy Jackson, who’s just coming to terms with his newfound divine powers when the sky god, Zeus, accuses him of stealing his master lightning bolt.
