The Lightning Thief: 9 Major Differences Between The Book And The 2010 Percy Jackson Movie

For over a decade now, Percy Jackson fans have been cursing the gods in regards to the movie adaptation of Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief in 201. If you’ve ever done what all the hubbub about, or just want to refresh the movie starring Logan Lerman Lerman Daddario pict the Rick Riordan book accurately, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s talk about the major differences between the bestselling first Percy Jackson book The Lightning Thief and the major motion picture directed by Chris Columbus.

The Percy Jackson movies did not meet hopes of becoming the next Harry Potter franchise on a number of fronts, which may have been a big factor in the potential franchise not surviving beyond one sequel. But all these years later, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief is receiving a remake in the form of a disney+ series, which author Rick Riordan is heavily involved in. Before we look forward to a new Percy Jackson, here’s how the book and 2010 movie differed.
