Percy Jackson and the Olympians is coming out tomorrow, and it’s a series for all Outlander fans to put on their list for the music. Where can you watch the show?
At first glance, Percy Jackson and the Olympians won’t seem like a series for Outlander fans. It doesn’t involve time travel or a steamy romance. There’s no Scottish or American history involved. This series is a YA fantasy series that revolves around Greek mythology.
And yet, the show is going to be one that you want to watch for the music alone. Bear McCreary composed the music for this series. Yes, we’ll get to hear him take on new sounds and inspirations to make something suitable for the YA setting.
If you have heard McCreary’s music outside of Outlander, you’ll know that nothing sounds the same. The Gods of War soundtrack has a strong Viking sound to it, while The Walking Dead leaves you on the edge of your seat through the action scenes. He is a master at what he does, so you’ll want to listen out in Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
Where to stream Percy Jackson and the Olympians
The series follows the first book in the YA series. 12-year-old Percy Jackson is a demigod and is just coming to terms with who and what he is. When Zeus accuses him of stealing his all-important lightning bolt, Percy needs to find a way to prove his innocence and get the lightning bolt back. Without it, Olympus will be destroyed.
The show is a Disney+ Original Series. You’ll be able to stream the episodes every Wednesday on Disney+. This series is also heading to Hulu. After all, there are plenty of adults looking forward to this show as long-time fans of the book series.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians premieres on Wednesday, Dec. 20 on Disney+.
