Lin-Manuel Miranda Joins ‘Percy Jackson And The Olympians’ Disney+ Series Cast – What’s On Disney Plus

Disney has announced that Lin-Manuel Miranda has joined the cast of the upcoming Disney+ Original series, “Percy Jackson and the Olympians.”

Based on Disney Hyperion’s best-selling book series by award-winning author Rick Riordan, “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” tells the fantastic story of a 12-year-old modern demigod, Percy Jackson, who is just coming to terms with his newfound godly powers when the sky god Zeus accuses him of stealing his master lightning. With the help of his friends Grover and Annabeth, Percy must embark on the adventure of a lifetime to find it and restore order to Olympus.

The new series will star Walker Scobell as Percy Jackson, alongside Aryan Simhadri and Leah Sava Jeffries.

Lin-Manuel Miranda will play the role of the Greek god Hermes, who is the messenger god who looks out for travelers and thieves, and is a bit of a trickster himself. He is charismatic and boisterous, the life of the party. Unfortunately, his charm doesn’t do much to heal his strained relationship with his son Luke (Charlie Bushnell). He is hesitant to help Percy and his friends on their quest, as getting involved is sometimes more trouble than it’s worth.

Also starring in the series are Adam Copeland, Suzanne Cryer and Jessica Parker Kennedy, along with Virginia Kull, Glynn Turman, Jason Mantzoukas, Megan Mullally and Timm Sharp, as well as Dior Goodjohn, Charlie Bushnell and Olivea Morton.

Rick Riordan and Jon Steinberg will serve as writers of the pilot, and James Bobin will direct. Steinberg will oversee the series with his producing partner Dan Shotz. Steinberg and Shotz serve as executive producers along with Bobin, Riordan, Rebecca Riordan, Bert Salke, Monica Owusu-Breen, Jim Rowe, Anders Engström, Jet Wilkinson and The Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Jeremy Bell and DJ Goldberg.
