Percy Jackson Sequel

This July the world will be saying goodbye to Harry Potter, but what will all the fans do?  Maybe they can flock over to Percy Jackson, another book turned movie success story.  Despite the success of the first Percy Jackson film, it took over a year before a sequel was given the green light, but it finally has.

There are five books in the Percy Jackson series.  The lead actors were initially signed on to do at least three films, but after the first film was released there was no news of a sequel, then recently it was announced that work on the sequel would be starting soon.  The actual movie is expected to come out sometime in 2012.  Hopefully this doesn’t mean that production will be rushed, which generally leads to bad movies.

As with the first, the plot will follow that of the book.  The second book is called The Sea of Monsters, it has gotten numerous awards and was well received by critics.  In the book Camp Half-Blood is under attack and Percy and his friends must go on a quest to find the Golden Fleece.  In Greek mythology the Golden Fleece is a golden winged ram who was sired by Poseidon when he was in ram form.  The ram was later sacrificed and his fleece was guarded by a dragon.  Having not read the book, I can’t say for sure how close the story stays to the myth, but the books are heavily inspired by Greek mythology so it probably has a lot of similarities.

What do you think?  Do you want to see a sequel to Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief?  Are you a fan of the books?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below.  Also don’t forget to subscribe and click the like button if you liked this post.  I haven’t been able to post lately, because my computer broke, but I’ve found a substitute so hopefully I can go back to posting regularly.
