Percy Jackson 3 Movie: The name Percy Jackson not only excites the young souls but also the old ones, as Rick Riordan attracted innumerable readers through his writing prowess. Rick’s son Haley inspired him to come up with a book based on Greek mythology when he ran out of fictional stories related to the teachings, and it led him to create a fictional character called Percy Jackson. His very first book Percy Jackson and the Olympians was extremely well received by the readers as it depicted how Percy Jackson tries his utmost to find out the lightning bolt of Zeus.

After reading such intense books related to the Greek mythology, watching a movie based on the same story was highly overwhelming for the fandom. American filmmaker Chris Columbus mulled over the thought of presenting the happenings of Rick’s first book on the silver screens, and with extreme zeal he came up with Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightening Thief, the first film under the franchise of Percy Jackson. Released on February 12, 2010, the movie left the audiences jaw-dropped with the perfectionism in the plot line, due to which it did the victory march at the box office throughout. And Logan Lerman portraying the character of Percy Jackson was an absolute treat to the eyes for the viewers.
But the second film in the series tiled as Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters directed by Thor Freudenthal was not that well received by the fandom as it differed from several facts and figures which were mentioned in the book. But looking at the brighter side, the earnings of both the films under the franchise was phenomenal as the amount settled down to a miraculous figure of $428.7 million. And now the questions which is there on the minds of every Percy Jackson fan is would there be a Percy Jackson 3 which will be based on Rick’s third novel The Titan’s Curse? Well!
