Annabeth Chase Actress Says She Can't-Wait For Fans To See The Show's Monsters
Star of the upcoming Percy Jackson show Leah Sava Jeffries comes out praising the show and says she can not wait for fans to see the monsters, "I can't wait for you guys to see it."
In May 2022, Riordan made the casting announcement for Jeffries, who would star in the Greek mythology-inspired series with Aryan Simhadri as Grover Underwood. The youthful actors' casting as the series' deuteragonists thrilled many Percy Jackson fans.
In an interview with ComicBook.com, Jeffries, who will portray Annabeth Chase in the Disney+ series, teased some intriguing Percy Jackson information. She said, "I can't wait for you all to witness the complete performance." "I'm excited for you guys to see the creatures inside, as well as us, searching around specific areas and seeking for items. But I'm really excited for you guys to see it."
The groundbreaking StageCraft visual effects technology from Industrial Light and Magic will be used to bring the creatures that Jeffries has hinted to on the small screen. Percy Jackson will make use of an "even more cutting-edge version" of the technology developed for The Mandalorian, Riordan stated in June.
Instead of employing green screens, VFX artists may utilize a game engine to show computer-generated pictures over several LED video walls in real time using The Volume, the soundstage used for the StageCraft technology. The upgraded soundstage, which was built in Vancouver, Canada, is being used for the first time by Percy Jackson.
The Disney+ series will follow the author's source material considerably more closely than the 2010 version, which will please any fans who are still hesitant about another Percy Jackson adaptation. If you were reading the book as you would have, we have very much finished filming The Lightning Thief chapter nine, according to Riordan, who is intimately involved in the forthcoming series. "Although a significant portion of the plot has already been told, there is still a ton of entertainment left! And sure, the movie's plot closely resembles that of the book—almost as if the author were taking part personally!"
