Disney's Percy Jackson show

?si=0U3zMpHVjn0SQZIJ

trailer dropped apparently, haven't seen anything on the board regarding this. two things spring to mind immediately
1) it looks like it follows the books very closely, which is a positive
2) the shitty "colourblind" casting (Charon and, what's SIGNIFICANTLY worse, Annabeth are black)
also apparently Lt. Daniels is in it, guess they'll have to recast his role

      i used to love them as a kid because i was a big mythology buff, i loved how he integrated the myths into the modern setting, e.g.
      >Medusa selling garden statues
      >Procrustes having a waterbed business
      >Ares being a biker
      and so on. i was skimming the books last year having not touched them for a long time, it was really quite delightful

            Kane Chronicles is alright, so is Heros of Olympus. His Magnus Chase books on the other hand are pure literal homosexualry as is Trials of Apollo and it's spin off books

    This shit will flop, /misc/tards will celebrate, Disney will write it off as a tax write-off, the show will be delisted, everyone will forget it existed, and then the cycle will continue

          Because everything has to be at least 50% non-white and leading roles cannot be given to a second white person unless every other race has gotten one (or 2) first.

            How come the HTTYD live action adaption is full of blackwashing but the Aladdin, Mulan, lilo and stitch, etc., adaptions had no whitewashing in order to make the movies more representative and diverse? It sure is strange, if I wasn’t a chud I’d think there’s an anti-white agenda or something.

          They got the normalfags used to raceswap with gingers who were an easy target because everyone likes to insult them anyway. Now that the masses are desensitized to raceswapping they can expand to other minority groups of whites.

          They've run out of gingers to target. Even Harry Potter is black on tumblr.

      I doubt people will particularly care.
      Outside the shameless hypocrisy, it’s going to be a by the numbers bastardisation of a has been series.
      Likely it will follow WoT’s fate, and have a bit of a buzz at how fucked it is, followed by complete apathy

          Leftists prioritized feminism, diversity, progressive allegories, and meeting modern day woke standards/quotas over good storytelling. Some more than others, HOTD is pretty good, ROP is unwatchable and forgettable, and WOT is insultingly bad.

    Did I got it wrong or is Zeus a nagger too? Does that mean we'll get black Thalia and black Jason?
    >implying we'll get far enough for Thalia to appear
    I already knew about pajeet Grover and nagger Annabeth, but the amount of bells I had to ring in this trailer was insane. Clarice is black too, apparently. What the fuck was Riordan thinking? Couldn't he just get Charles Beckendorf more screen time?

      lol, apparently Lt. Daniels plays Zeus. you know, i actually don't care that he's black simply because i like him, but they're gonna need someone new since he passed away recently

    Reminder that no production derived from a preexisting source that fails to respect the sanctity of source material is deserving of only contempt, and should be relegated to shitpost status immediately.

        It probably is. This is a man who was unhappy with Daddario for not being blonde in the movie, but is thrilled with a nagger in the show. He’s succumbed to Twitter mind virus

    The peak of this series for me was when the Ares girl showed up to save the day with an ironclad filled with undead Confederate soldiers, it was the most metal thing I'd ever read to that point.
