The Percy Jackson books are super popular and had Fox played their cards right, they might have had a Harry Potter type franchise on their hands. Unfortunately, after Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief came out in 2011, fans and critics alike didn’t really love what they were doing with the material. But, the movie made enough money to warrant giving the whole thing another shot. Thus, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters was born.
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters definitely raises some questions. Like why is Poseidon ignoring his son? Why is Tyson here and how can he see with those sunglasses on? How is Luke still alive? Why aren’t more people involved in this quest if annihilation is the possible outcome? Why isn’t Luke using his teleportation device more often? How is Luke surfing off of Percy’s wave? Why doesn’t being swallowed by a lava monster hurt anyone? Did they think this was getting a sequel?
To answer all these questions and more, step inside the Pitch Meeting that led to Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters! It’ll be super easy, barely an inconvenience.
