The new Disney Plus adaptation of Percy Jackson is now full steam ahead,

and after finding its Percy in The Adam Project star Walker Scobell,

it has added two young actors to play his friends Grover and Annabeth.

Aryan Simhadri (Cheaper by the Dozen) will play Grover, while Leah Sava Jeffries (Empire) will take on the role of Annabeth,

in the series which is set to start production soon in Vancouver.

The live action teen series is based on the hugely popular Rick Riordan book series,

Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and will tell the story of 12-year-old modern demigod,

Percy Jackson, who's just coming to terms with his newfound supernatural powers

when the sky god Zeus accuses him of stealing his master lightning bolt. In order to restore it to Olympus,

Percy must trek across America to find it.
