Walker Scobell (“The Adam Project”) has been cast in the titular role in Disney+’s fantastical live action series “Percy Jackson and the Olympians,” it was announced today by the streaming service. The epic adventure is based on—and closely aligned with—Disney Hyperion’s best-selling book series by award-winning author Rick Riordan. The Disney Branded Television series, “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” is produced by 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios, and will go into production this summer.

“Percy Jackson and the Olympians” tells the fantastical story of a 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. Now Percy must trek across America to find it and restore order to Olympus. 

Percy Jackson is a smart and compassionate kid with a sharp sense of humor. He’s always seen himself as an outsider, in no small part because of how the world sees his ADHD and dyslexia. He’s impulsive and rambunctious and is quick to anger when things seem unfair to him. But beneath his cynicism is an affectionate son and loyal friend who just wants to do right by those he cares about. If only he could find a place where he fits in.

Riordan and Jon Steinberg will serve as writers of the pilot episode, and James Bobin will direct. Steinberg will oversee the series with his producing partner Dan Shotz. Steinberg and Shotz serve as executive producers alongside Bobin, Riordan, Rebecca Riordan, Bert Salke, Monica Owusu-Breen, Jim Rowe and The Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Jeremy Bell and D.J. Goldberg.


About Walker Scobell

When Walker Scobell was five, he learned that his favorite superhero Tony Stark – AKA Iron Man – was not an actual person but an actor playing a role. He decided right then that he wanted to become an actor. He said if he couldn’t become a superhero in real life, the next best thing would be to play one. After attending an actor’s workshop in L.A., Walker began his professional career. His first film acting role was in “The Adam Project,” and he filmed his second movie, “Secret Headquarters,” soon after. Walker loves the movie-making process and has fun utilizing his flipping and jumping abilities to perform many of his own stunts. He enjoys a variety of movie genres but always comes back to where it began for him – superheroes. At the top of his list of movie favorites are “Deadpool,” “Spider-Man” and “The Avengers.” When Walker is not acting, he enjoys spending time with his family, his friends, and his dogs. He also enjoys skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, lacrosse, and swimming.

King’s Hawaiian Slider Sunday

King’s Hawaiian Slider Sunday

Our family just loves sliders! I know if I ask anyone what they want for Sunday dinner the answer will be SLIDERS! Recently our family had a chance to test out King’s Hawaiian Slider Sunday. Every Sunday is Slider Sunday! This Sunday I went with a family fave- pork sliders, so delicious! Click here to see our 3decades3kids King’s Hawaiian prep video.

Wondering how King’s Hawaiian began?  Back in the 1950’s in Hilo, Hawaii Robert R. Taira, the Hawaiian-born son of Japanese immigrants had an idea! Robert graduated at the top of his baking class, opened his first bake shop: Robert’s Bakery. That’s where the very first soft round loaves of the Original Hawaiian Sweet bread were made. The dedication still goes on today many years later with expansions and King’s Hawaiian being available in our local stores! 

Our family created a Slider Bar for the first time ever, but it will not be the last! I cooked up some pork chops smothered in BBQ sauce and pineapples and when they were done I shredded the pork and added more BBQ sauce.  You can visit King’s Hawaiian by clicking here.
