Percy Jackson and the Olympians set photos offer fans their first look at how Camp Half-Blood will look in the upcoming Disney+ series adaptation.

Set photos captured from the fifth week of filming on Percy Jackson and the Olympians reveal part of Camp Half-Blood.

Posted by the Percy Jackson Disney+ News Twitter account, the images reveal the training grounds for Camp Half-Blood, which in the novels is a Greek training facility young demigods attend to train against and stay safe from mythological creatures. The photographer also reportedly saw “a bunch of hobbit type houses,” which are suspected to be the 12 cabins the half-bloods live in while attending Camp Half-Blood. The pictures were taken in Aldergrove, Canada, where production on the series is currently taking place.

Season 1 of Percy Jackson and the Olympians will consist of eight episodes and will adapt the first book in the series, The Lightning Thief, which centers on 12-year-old demigod Percy Jackson being accused by the Greek god Zeus of stealing his lightning bolt. The book was previously brought to life in 2010 as a feature-length film by 20th Century Studios. Filming on the pilot began in June in Vancouver, Canada.

Bringing Greek Mythology to Life

Percy Jackson author Rick Riordan is heavily involved in the Disney+ series, serving as a writer and an executive producer on Percy Jackson. The author has consistently provided fans with weekly updates on the series’ production, including revealing that Percy Jackson will be the first television series to film on Industrial Light and Magic’s Vancouver-based Volume stage. The Volume is a high-resolution soundstage that blends physical sets and full LED walls to generate realistic visuals that was previously used to bring the live-action Star Wars Disney+ series to life. However, Riordan stated that “our new Volume stage is an even more cutting-edge version of that wraparound virtual environment, making it one of the most advanced production stages in the world.”

Walker Scobell leads the series as the titular demigod with Leah Sava Jeffries and Aryan Smhadri rounding out the series’ main cast as Annabeth Chase and Grover Underwood respectively. Actors slated to make recurring appearances on the series include Dior Goodjohn as Clarisse La Rue, Olivea Morton as Nancy Bobofit, Charlie Bushnell as Luke Castellan, Virginia Kull as Percy’s mother Sally Jackson and Timm Sharp as Percy’s stepfather Gabe.

The series will also feature several characters from Greek mythology. Jason Mantzoukas will recur as the god Dionysus/Mr. D while Glynn Turman and Megan Mullally will appear as Chiron/Mr. Brunner and Alecto/Mrs. Dodds, respectively. While The Lightning Thief includes appearances from the Olympians Zeus, Poseidon, Hades and Ares, casting for the Greek gods has not yet been confirmed by Disney, so it is unknown if any of them will appear in the series at this time.


Percy Jackson and the Olympians does not have a premiere date at this time but will stream on Disney+.
