Here is the “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” plot description:

It’s the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus and assorted monsters have walked out of the pages of high school student Percy Jackson’s Greek mythology texts and into his life. And they’re not happy. Zeus’ lightning bolt has been stolen and Percy is the prime suspect. Even more troubling is the sudden disappearance of Percy’s mother.

As Percy adapts to his newly discovered status as a demi-god (his father is Poseidon), he finds himself caught between the battling titans of Mount Olympus. He and his friends embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true lightning thief, save Percy’s mom and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.

The “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” trailer can be watched now below.

i think when children first learn about Gods the first they hear about is ZEUS and that is because he is the most powerful of them all

Just because most of the earth is covered in water, so it seems like it’d be the best gig.

Come on! The king of the gods, the ruler of Mount Olympus and the god of the sky and thunder. You can’t beat that.

Greatest God of all Time

Poseidon is my favorite. I think it’s because I LOVE the ocean - it’s one of the most calming elements.
