Fans of Percy Jackson have been anxiously awaiting for more information regarding the promised series for Disney+. Although we haven’t learned much about filming, casting etc, we did get more information about how they they might go about filming the series.

Something they are looking into is the use of the “Rig” video wall technology that we saw in The Mandalorian. WhatsOnDisneyPlus explains the Rig:

The Rig is an immersive and massive 20’ high by 270-degree semicircular LED video wall and ceiling with a 75’-diameter performance space, where the practical set pieces are combined with digital extensions on the screens. Digital 3D environments are created by ILM and played back interactively on the LED walls, edited in real-time during the shoot, which allows for pixel-accurate tracking and perspective-correct 3D imagery rendered at high resolution via systems powered by NVIDIA GPUs. The environments are lit and rendered from the perspective of the camera to provide parallax in real-time, as if the camera were really capturing the physical environment with accurate interactive light on the actors and practical sets

With the pandemic, use of the Rig helps prevent delays is production which is a huge consideration. It does seem like they would have to use a combination of the Rig and physical locations, but we will have to wait to see exactly what the end result will be.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
