Okay Percy Jackson fans: Grab your pen swords and your invisibility hats and get ready for Disney’s latest trailer Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

Lucky for us, Percy Jackson and the Olympians it seems to stick closer to the source material – with promising results.

Besides teasing well-known sections of The Lightning Thief, this new trailer gives us a crash course in all things Percy Jackson (Walker Scobell). He is a 12-year-old demigod who must go on a mission to retrieve the Master Bolt stolen from Zeus (Lance Reddick) by a mysterious thief. Along the way, Percy and his new friends Annabeth (Leah Sava Jeffries) and Grover (Arian Simhadri) will encounter ancient monsters, powerful magic, and enough Greek gods to make Homer jealous. Percy may never have wanted to be a demigod, but I’ve never been so excited to live out my childhood obsession.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians premieres December 20 on Disney+.
