Percy Jackson & The Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus Reboot Fancastby nairrenjith-39353 | created - 4 months ago | updated - 4 months ago | Public
Percy Jackson & The Olympians, and its sequel series The Heroes of Olympus, are one of my favorite book series and to see it get such horrible big screen adaptation really made me sad. PJO and HOO, as the fandom calls it, has the possibility to be the next Harry Potter in terms of a film franchise along with the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).
For this fancast, I will try to keep the casting closer to the actual ages of the characters in the books.
