Percy Jackson And The Olympians Set Photos Reveal Minor Details About The Film

A little more than two months separate us from the launch of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, which is the second attempt by Rick Riordan to bring the series he developed in the books to the film.

This time, in the form of a series, and it appears that Disney+ has invested enough to ensure that it will be a success.

In the year 2010, Fox made an effort to create a cinematic universe based on Riordan's published works. And despite the fact that both "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief" and "Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters" were financial successes at the box office, fans and critics did not have a very positive reaction to either film. As a result, the production company made the decision not to continue with the plot.

The House of Mouse said in 2020, several months after the introduction of Disney+, that they were in the process of developing a new live-action adaptation of the literary story, and that Riordan would be a direct collaborator to ensure that the adaptation remained true to the source material. 

Given the amount of money that has been put into the series, it would appear that the production company has a strong motivation to see to it that it is a success.

It was confirmed by Variety that the budget for each episode of the show's first season was between $12 and $15 million. Variety was the source of this information. 

Which indicates that, taking the lower amount into consideration, the initial installment of eight episodes cost around $96 million, which is higher than the budget of the first feature, which was $95 million.

The budget for each episode of Percy Jackson and the Olympians may seem modest in comparison to that of other series of a similar nature, such as The Rings of Power ($58 million per episode) or House of the Dragon ($20 million per episode). 

However, the budget for this series is comparable to that of productions such as One Piece ($17 million per episode), The Mandalorian, The Sandman, and Game of Thrones, all of which cost approximately $15 million per episode. In point of fact, the budget for the series is positioned higher than that of previous productions like Halo, which is unquestionably excellent news for fans.
