25 "Percy Jackson" Episode 1 And 2 Reactions For Anyone Who Has Been Waiting For This Adaptation Since They Were, Like, 10

    In just the first two episodes, Walker Scobell, Leah Sava Jeffries, and Aryan Simhadri proved they are the perfect Percy, Annabeth, and Grover. Like literally, everyone agrees.

    🚨 There are MASSIVE — and I mean MASSIVE — spoilers ahead for Percy Jackson and the Olympians Episodes 1 and 2! 🚨

    Hi, yes, hello, everyone. If you couldn't tell I am vibrating at an unhealthy level of excitement because Percy Jackson and the Olympians just premiered on Disney+. Based on the beloved book series by Rick Riordan, my favorite demigods are finally getting a faithful adaptation, and I couldn't be happier.

    The first two episodes, titled "I Accidentally Vaporize My Pre-Algebra Teacher" and "I Become Supreme Lord of the Bathroom," which are also chapter titles directly from The Lightning Thief, were perfect episodes, in my opinion.

    Directed by James Bobin and written by Rick Riordan and Jonathan E. Steinberg, we got to see Percy (Walker Scobell) quickly learn that he's a demigod after a run-in with a monster, Ms. Dodds (Megan Mullally), on a school field trip.

    This leads to Grover (Aryan Simhadri) and his mother Sally Jackson (Virginia Kull) attempting to drive Percy to Camp Half-Blood where he will be safe. Of course, this trip doesn't go off without a heartbreaking moment when Sally is seemingly killed by a minotaur.

    Then, in Episode 2, we finally met Annabeth Chase, who is brought to life perfectly by Leah Sava Jeffries, and other Camp Half-Blood characters, like Luke (Charlie Bushnell) and Clarisse (Dior Goodjohn).

    By the end of the first two episodes, we've played the iconic game of capture the flag, and Poseidon (Toby Stephens) has claimed Percy as his child, all before we learn about THE QUEST Percy, Annabeth, and Grover are about to embark on in an attempt to retrieve Zeus's master bolt.

    So much happens in these episodes that perfectly sets up Percy's journey in Season 1, and as a fan of the books, I am absolutely giddy with how breathtakingly beautiful (and accurate) this show is.
