It’s taken a couple of years to get a sequel to Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief together, but Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters is now in the can and heading for release this August. The first pictures from the movie have been released, via USA Today, along with some comments from director Thor Freudenthal and star Logan Lerman, which you can see below.
Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson), Alexandra Daddario (Annabeth Chase), and Brandon T. Jackson (Grover), all return, along with new cast members Leven Rambin (Clarisse LaRue), Douglas Smith (Tyson the Cyclops), and Stanley Tucci (Dionysus). The story, adapted from Rick Riordan’s best-selling novel series, follows Percy and his friends on a quest to find a golden fleece, which is integral to saving a magical tree that protects his home, Camp Half-Blood.
