It’s been three years since Percy Jackson saved the world in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, and now he’s back to do it again. Well, except this time he’s really only saving Camp Half-Blood first, but hey, that’s his world!
The first trailer for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters just hit the web, and clearly those three years in-between filming movies have been kind to the stars. Logan Lerman is back as Poseidon’s son Percy Jackson, and he’s teaming up with his maybe-more-than-a-friend, daughter-of-Athena Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario), satyr Grover (Brandon T. Jackson), and newly-discovered-half-brother cyclops Tyson (Douglas Smith) to find the mythical Golden Fleece that will cure their camp’s poisoned borders… poisoned by a revenge-seeking son-of-Hermes Luke (Jake Abel). The stakes are higher, the action is bigger, and the monsters are downright massive in their quest to save Camp Half Blood, and then stop the titan Kronos from rising again to defeat his sons, the Gods of Olympus.
The demigods must travel through the Sea of Monsters (a.k.a. the Bermuda Triangle), tangle with the mother of all sea monsters Charybdis, and battle an army of zombies to save their home and the world. Add in some heavier players like the sarcastic and spiteful God of Wine, Dionysus (Stanley Tucci) and Luke’s shifty father, Hermes himself (Nathan Fillion), plus a new head centaur (Anthony Head replaces Pierce Brosnan‘s role as Chiron) and a cocky daughter-of-Ares Clarisse (Leven Rambin), and Percy and co. are in for another tough quest ahead. Watch the trailer below:
