Sneak Peek: New ‘Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters’ Stills + Jake Abel Reveals What to Expect

percyjackson-032313Check out one of the first stills from Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters!

The long awaited sequel Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief finds Percy Jackson, accompanied by his friends Annabeth Chase, Clarisse La Rue and Tyson, his half brother, going on a journey to the Sea of Monsters to retrieve the Golden Fleece and save Camp Half-Blood.

Logan Lerman, Alexandria Daddario, Jake Abel, and Brandon T. Jackson all return and Jake told us that the action is better than ever. He’s even hoping to take home an MTV Movie Award for best fight next year.

At The Host junket, Jake told us, “From what I see it actually looks pretty good. It’s been a long time since we did the first one. It’s bigger. We’ve added more cast – there’s Tyson, the Cyclops, Clarisse. Luke’s at it again in a much bigger way with playing with Kronos and bringing him back. We reshot that scene. They spent more money to make it better and it’s the best decision they could have done. It’s a great way to end it so maybe next year Beyonce won’t beat Logan & I for best fight.”

We cannot wait for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, which is set to release August 16, 2013.
