Disney+ has dropped the first teaser of "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" series, which features a 12-year-old demigod, listening to the advice of returning back to a normal life.

"Look, I didn't want to be a half but being a half-blood is dangerous. It's scary," a voiceover tells the 12-year-old boy (played by Walker Scobell) in the 52-second teaser shared on YouTube Sunday. "Most of the time it gets you killed."

In the teaser, the boy gets advice to return back to life if he thinks he is one of the demigods.

"If you think you might be one of us, my advice is: turn away while you still can. Believe whatever lie your mom or dad told you about your birth," the voiceover says. "Try to live a normal life because once you know what you are they'll sense it too."

While the voiceover goes on, the boy can be seen walking through a forest wearing an orange t-shirt. He reaches a house, located in the middle of the forest, and walks towards it during the daytime.

The next scene shows a quick glimpse of the boy's face at night time while lightning can be seen in the background. "And they'll come for you," the voiceover concludes. "Don't say I didn't warn you."

The series is based on Rick Riordan's novel of the same name, originally published on June 28, 2005. The story revolves around a young boy who is a demigod and tries to understand his divine powers after getting accused by sky god Zeus of stealing his lightning bolt.

Scobell, who played Percy Jackson's character in the series, previously worked with Ryan Reynolds in "The Adam Project" for Netflix earlier this year and with Owen Wilson in "Secret Headquarters," which was dropped on Paramount+ last month.

The cast also includes actress Virginia Kull, playing Percy's mother named Sally Jackson, actress Megan Mullally portraying Percy's teacher named Mrs. Dodds and actor Glynn Turman will be seen as a trainer of demigods named Chiron.

The series will also feature actors Jason Mantzoukas, Timm Sharp, Dior Goodjohn, and Charlie Bushnell. The show is penned by Riordan and Jon Steinberg while the project is helmed by director James Bobin.

The release date of the series has not been announced yet.
