Last week, Disney released the first two episodes of “Percy Jackson And The Olympians” were released on Disney+ around the world. Also Disney tried to boost the viewing numbers for the show by doing an unannounced primetime viewing release a few hours earlier, and also releasing the first episode on Hulu.

The series is based on the best-selling book series by Rick Riordan and it tells the story of Percy Jackson, who is on a dangerous quest and has to outrun monsters and outwit gods, as he journeys across America to return Zeus’ master bolt and stop an all-out war. After losing his mother, Percy is sheltered at Camp Half-Blood, a sanctuary for demigod children. He must prove himself and confront his origins once he discovers he too is a demigod, and will take off into the perils of pursuing enemies in search of the Underworld. With the help of his quest mates Annabeth and Grover, Percy’s journey will lead him closer to the answers he seeks: how to fit into a world where he feels out of place, if he’ll ever see his mother again, and if he can ever find out who he’s destined to be.

It was revealed earlier this week that the first episode was viewed 13.3 million globally across Disney+ and Hulu in its first six days of streaming.
