Percy Jackson acting star praised by original film Logan Lerman
Percy Jackson and the Olympians star actor Vox Kerber earns praise from original Percy Jackson film star Logan Lerman.
The original star of the Percy Jackson film has nothing but praise for new Percy Jackson and Olympian Vox Kobel. Percy Jackson and the Olympians intends to completely reboot the franchise to show how Percy can be a powerful demigod. Despite the vows of the three gods, Poseidon, Zeus, and Hades, to have no more children, Percy was born, the forbidden son of Poseidon, which was devastating to young Percy and the entire hybrid establishment The Blow.
While the original film received little praise due to some major deviations from the source material, original Posey actor Logan Lerman supported the reboot's casting choices. Scobel is much younger than Lerman was when he took the role, but he seems to be thriving in the spotlight. In an interview with ComicBook.com, Lerman clarified that he fully approves of Scobel's casting and has nothing to criticize. Check out what he has to say below: ^Percy Jackson and the Olympians is an adaptation of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson books, and since the author was involved in the production, it promises to be closer to the adaptation than the original film, which is a major Superior to Percy Jackson's films. Riordan was critical of the original films, mainly because they differed from the source material, so the Disney+ version might be more in line with his vision. In addition to Scobell, the cast includes Leah Jeffries (Annabeth Chase), Aryan Simhadri (Grover Underwood), Dior Goodjohn (Clarice LaRue), Charlie Bushnell (Luke Castellan) ), Glynn Turman (Chiron), Jason Mantzoukas (Dionysus), Virginia Kull (Sally Jackson) and Tim Sharp (Smelly Gabe).
"I don't think he needs any advice. The kid's really talented. The only advice I can give him is just to enjoy it while you're doing it. I think when you're young, at least when I was younger [playing Percy Jackson], you almost forget to enjoy it as you're a part of it. I really enjoyed it while I was doing it. Just take each second in and enjoy the newness of what you're doing and being a part of something like that. That would be the only thing I would tell him. I'd feel like a bit of a schmuck, giving him advice (laughs). You're great. You're there for a reason. Just do your job. I just think this adaptation's going to be great. I think the actors are so good and the creative team is great. Obviously, it's Rick Riordan. It's going to be exactly what it should be, and I hope the fans like it. I'll definitely watch it. I'm curious to see what they do with it. I have no doubt that it's going to be great."
Everything We Know About Percy Jackson And The Olympians
Disney+ has released a trailer showing Camp Half-Blood, as well as the armor and weapons the characters will wear and use. It also teases some scenes, like Percy's half-blood camp and the forest within the camp, that are exactly as imagined in the book. Of course, while filming on Percy Jackson's first season is nearing completion, it's still going to take a long time in post-production because the mythical world of Ryordan is full of magic and special effects. As the realm of the gods, Mount Olympus itself required serious VFX work to make scenes with Percy Jackson and the gods of Olympus believable.
However, while the set required CGI support, the actors themselves also required the use of visual effects. Given that Grover is A satyr, whenever he shows his legs, the VFX team needs to take the time to give him realistic legs without being too harsh for the audience. He's not even the only character with this problem, as Medusa actress Jessica Parker Kennedy shared her special effects problem. Post-production will be complicated, but if Disney+ can make Percy Jackson and the Olympians look believable, it will go a long way toward getting audiences to buy in. Thankfully, with Scobell's solid acting chops, he might be able to hold the show under any circumstances.
