Percy Jackson 3 – Sequel Plans

Percy Jackson 3 (Titan's Curse movie) - Sequel Plans
There’s been some Percy Jackson 3 talk in recent weeks. So what has been said and how likely is a sequel?

There are five books in the Percy Jackson series, so far. The next installment is ‘The Titan’s Curse’ which sees Percy ambushed by Manticore (half-human, half-lion) as he brings two new demigods into camp. Annabeth is kidnapped and the general of the Titans prepares to release a skeleton army onto the world. Percy and four friends must undertake a dangerous quest to put things right, even though the Camp’s Oracle has prophesied that not all of them will survive…

At the box office over the weekend Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters earned $14 million, less than half of Lightning Thief’s $31m. However this time it opened midweek, internationally it’s opened bigger so far, and it has the added bonus of 3D. All in all it looks like it will get close to Lightning Thief’s final total of $88m domestic, $137m foreign. Its production budget was also around $90m.

Among the critics, Sea of Monsters didn’t do as well as Lightning Thief (35% vs 49% on RT) but, more importantly, fans reacted better to it, with a user score of 6.5 on IMDB compared to 5.8 – in IMDB language that’s a significant difference.

The studio knows Sea of Monsters would have opened stronger if they hadn’t waited three-and-a-half years since the previous movie. Potter and Twilight never had gaps of more than two years. They need to get Titan’s Curse out in 2015 for maximum return. Indeed there’s an unconfirmed rumour that Fox has its eye on October that year.

Summing up, a third film is more likely than not given the numbers and fan reaction, but this is a series that’s limping forwards, not charging. Unlike Potter, the studio will be judging whether to keep going one film at a time.

What would you like to see happen in Percy Jackson 3 (Titan’s Curse)? Did you prefer Sea of Monsters or Lightning Thief? How can they improve on both? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

    I would like a third film and personally think that it is a bad idea that they discontinue the series. Sea of Monsters was a HUGE improvement over the first one as it actually did the book justice and was really well written as a film. They really made it well done as a film. To improve on it they need to make it darker and keep on making it a good structure and script, adding on to the cinematic universe by putting certain things in like the Cafe, etc.

    How can they make another film? They’ve changed the story too much that it’s wrecked the potential for further films! They put the entire plot of the fifth book and main events of the fourth book into the second film. They’ve got nothing to go on!

      they didn’t put basically any information about the last olympian or the battle at the labrynth in the sea of monsters at all.. percy finds out about Kronos in the sea of monsters anyways and thats why he was in it! i think they have a big enough plot line to go on to make another movie and then two more to finish the series.

        I would like a new movie, I just don’t what to put in it. I mean, they practically ended the whole story by setting up a big fight with Kronos when this battle was supposed to be on the last book. They could’ve really put the Circe scene or the Sirens part (Sorry, Percabeth fan here).

    percy would have been better if they actualy followed the plot line of the books. People like the books for a reason and not the movies for a reason. It would also be better if me and my cousin were hired as Nico and Bianca.

    I, as a fan of the books, loved the sea of monsters. They didn’t have all of the good scenes from the book but they made new ones that were similar. I liked it even more than the lightning thief. It would be great If they had more of the important scenes in the third movie. I really hope they keep making the movies and keep improving as they go along.

    They need to follow the book a little better. I’m not saying that the book needs to be the movie’s script, there’s no way it could be. The thing that bothered me about The Sea of Monsters though is that, in all 5 books, Kronos never rises to his full form, the closest he gets is when he takes over Luke’s body. I will continue to watch every movie you produce from this series, but wether I recommend it to all my friends is the debate. In Titans curse they need not to take a long intro and then speed through the end like in SoM. they made a joke out of Polyphemus and made Kronos appear as the huge fight scene. That’s not what they needed to do. If you make Poly less of a joke and a huge threat and make an amazing fight scene with him, Kronos never has to come in and you don’t have to make readers disappointed. One last thing, the Andromeda needs to be bigger, a lot bigger, like Carnival cruise ship big. Thank you for reading if you actually did. There is more I’d like to discuss so if you will email me I will make sure you quit dissapointing readers

      I totally agree with you Josh!

      Thank you for mentioning the Andromeda … I took my 5 year old son and he even noticed that it wasn’t a carnival cruise ship!!!

      They have a new director now and he is trying to make it more like the movie, so I hope they do the whole series. I love the book and the movies; I think that the 2nd movie (sea of monsters) did the book justice as I really liked the movie. It was phenomenal!

    A lot of fans on my website loved the movie and have already seen it many times! If all fans get on board to see it than Titan’s Curse will happen! Critics ripped SoM apart as the continuously compared it to Harry Potter. Percy isn’t Harry and it needs to be seen differently. There is still hope for more Percy Jackson movies!

      I agree with you completely they need to understand HP and PJO are different so they shouldn’t compare it, even the actors themselves said that they’re different in many ways.

      You don’t compare Percy to Harry Percy is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYY out of Harry’s league. I just hope The movies are close to the books.

        I think that both Percy and Harry have their ups and downs. Neither of them are perfect. That’s why we all relate to them, so stop comparing them, even if you are defending one there are some people out there who think you’re not defending either, just ripping on the one.
        Percy and Harry are NOT similar in any way, besides their general looks and that they’re fictional characters.

    I’m really hoping that The Titan’s Curse is made. They have a chance to really focus on the book and what fans want now. The ending of SOM was perfect and “Titan’s Curse” would be closer to what the critics are looking for (emotional weight). Some deft scriptwriting could even gloss over the changes that took place in SOM.

    I watched the film earlier in 3D and I must say it was way better than the lightning thief . They stuck to (most of) the book and did it justice . They missed parts of the book back but made it better by adding in extra bits like the cafe and the theme park and Kronos sort of rising … The ending to SoM couldn’t have been done any better in my opinion and to not make the Titans Curse would be stupid because so many more people would pay to see it because of where SoM left off. Aslong as they have nico and bianca , the hunters and Artemis then I don’t see a problem with it in all honesty – one iffy thing about SoM though … silena Beauregard being known to be on Kronos’ side – kinda ruins some of TLO if they were to make that into a film… I feel that they realised they made mistakes in TLF such as not having Clarisse and Mr D and the way that they introduced Hermes was a great idea . However , why have they told Percy the prophecy of him so early ? It just doesn’t all make sense … And what happens to Tantalus or who ever he is , he was meant to be in SoM. however I fell the film was amazing and that they MUST make tTC film!!!

    Im a fan of the whole Percy Jackson and the Olympian and Heroes of Olympus. First time I watch the first movie I feel like what the hell they do with the story, but then they make a sequel (haven’t watch SoM yet cause its not released in my country yet) but I heard people say that it way better than the first one. So let’s make a clear, theyve make a big mistake from the 1st movie Percy should just be a twelve years old not a sixteen boy (but I love Logan Lerman tho) and then boom they change the properchy to 20th from 16th y.o. I don’t think they will make it until House of Olympus cause Logan will be too old to play as Percy and will be another story if they remake it in the future but still just hoping they will finish this series until the last Olympian and for the titans curse they should cast nico, Bianca, Zoe and another very well ☺ I’m sorry if my comment is too long and don’t even make a sense, thanks ☺

    Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters is much much better than the first movie Lightning Thief. I love all the books. Titan’s Curse is much better than first 2 books. Making a movie Percy Jackson and the Titan’s Curse will be much much much better than first 2 movies if they make this true closer to the book. Books Titan’s Curse book 3, Battle of Labyrinth book 4, and the Last Olympian book 5 are great to read and better than the first 2 books. Movie in book 3, 4 and 5 will be the best than first 2 movies. I hope.

      But, you guys know, that if they were to make the entire series, there’d PROBABLY be six movies. They ALWAYS split up the last movie, no matter how big it is. Like in Harry Potter, the order of the Phoenix is a hundred pages longer that the deathly hallows, but which one did they make into two parts?-the deathly hallows.
