The new Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters sequel picks up with Percy and his friends chasing the legendary Golden Fleece to save their beloved magic training school, Camp Half-Blood.
Since it’s been awhile, we figured a refresher course might be needed so you can keep your mortals and gods straight. Here’s some Percy Jackson 101…
Percy Jackson - Logan Lerman
The titular hero of the books and the films, Percy Jackson is the teenaged son of Poseidon, which makes him a demigod. He trains to grow into his powers and godliness at Camp Half-Blood with his friends (and relatives). In this film, he’s tasked with saving their Camp via the Golden Fleece which must be retrieved from a remote island away from the Sea of Monsters. Yeah, that doesn’t sound too easy….
Annabeth Chase - Alexandra Daddario
Percy’s BFF, and fellow child of a god (Athena), Annabeth is beautiful, brave and a bit of a rebel. She’s pining for a big adventure which she gets in the first film as part of Percy’s inner circle. In the film’s, she’s also the love interest of Percy.
Grover Underwood - Brandon T. Jackson
A satyr, Grover’s kind are tasked with identifying demigods living amongst mortals. He helps Percy discover his true lineage in the first film, and in the second film, is his loyal side kick. In the films, Grover also provides the comic relief along with his questing duties.

Thalia Grace - Paloma Kwiatkowski

She was a huge part of Percy’s inaugural adventure in the first film but she was turned into a tree in order to save her from permanent death. In the second film, Percy and company search for the Golden Fleece in part to help restore Thalia to her human form.
Zeus – Sean Bean
The god known as the lord of the sky and the god of lightning, Zeus was a big player and motivator in the first Percy Jackson film. In the second movie, he defers to the leadership at Camp Half-Blood and is involved with the human restoration of his daughter, Thalia.
Dionysus - Stanley Tucci
Known as Mr. D, Dionysus is the director of Camp Half-Blood and has a love/hate relationship with Percy. He’s none too fond of demigods in general but he sees the bravery and valor of the young man. In the first film, the character was played by Luke Camilleri.
