Percy Jackson is based on the novel series by New York Times best-selling author Rick Riordan. There are 5 books in the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series: The Lightening Thief, The Sea of Monsters, The Titan's Curse, The Battle of Labyrinth, The Last Olympians. Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightening Thief was the first film produced and released for the theaters in February 2010. The second movie Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters was released to the theaters August 2013. Persues (Percy) Jackson is the central character in the novels and films and is an atypical hero: Percy Jackson is the son of Poseidon and therefore a demi-god (half greek god and half human), a Titan and living in the 21st Century. The very name "Percy" is largely inspired by "Perseus" one of the greatest heroes of antiquity. As the son of Poseidon, Percy posesses many powers. He can mentally manipulate water and breathe underwater, communicate with equestrian animals such as Pegasi and has a enchanted sword called "Riptide" that disguises itself as a ballpoint pen.
In the 2 movies (Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief and Percy Jackson: The Sea of Monsters), mythology has a significant presence through Percy Jackson's friends and other characters around him. In the first movie The Lightening Thief, Percy seeks Zeus's stolen master thunderbolt. In The Sea of Monsters Percy seeks the golden fleece. It's a nice way to bring you up to date about the legends of the past, which obviously deserve to be known by young people. There are many themes based on the books and movies: destiny, responsibility, trust, betrayal, loyalty and courage.
