They're PERFECT!! As long as they can act. I can't wait!!

Betsy

I love these books and cannot wait for the movie!

Maureen E

Oooh, they actually look good! Especially Percy.

Melissa

Good casting, but then Columbus cast Harry Potter well, too. But then he killed the book. Killed it. Granted, there wasn't a whole lot there, but still. The first two movies are horrible. (The movies didn't get remotely good until Prizoner of Azkaban.)

Why, oh, why, couldn't they have gotten someone different for Percy Jackson?

Sigh.

Shayera

Yes, I think the faces are right for the characters. Can't wait for the last book to come out.

Laura

Awww, Grover is just adorable! These books really are begging to be made into movies. I'm excited.

Little Willow

OH MY FREAKING GOD, HAVE ANY OF YOU READ THE LIGHTNING THEIF?!?! PERCY AND ANNABETH ARE SUPOSSED TO BE TWELVE FREAKING YEARS OLD!!! AND THE ACTORS ARE SEVENTEEN AND EIGHTEEN???!!! THEY ARE RUINING THE MOVIE ALREADY!!!! ITS GOING TO SUCK WORSE THAT CITY OF EMBER!!!

JZ

i totally agree with you on the whole age thing...and maybe its just me but thats not at all what i thought grover looked like(i think rupert grint would be better), and i thought annabeth was suppose to be blonde.

JZ

WHAT THE HELL!!!!! 007 IS PLAYING CHIRON???

JZ

okay i'm seriously not racist, but in the book Rick Riordan wrote that has the pictures of Grover, Anabeth, and Percy, Grover is white not black. so i'm just saying they're doing a pretty crappy job of having actors that actually look like the characters from the book.

??

Seriously Grover was described as a white nerdy kid! I hate watching movies that are based off books. Usualy they ruin the books.

??????

i didnt think was black either but in one of the books something said he was and i was like ...what....oh ..ok

percy jackson

Um, I don't think this movie will be good just like they failed the Cirque du freak and others.

KiDD

"Ohmygosh. Grover ain't black!"
"Annabeth ain't blond!"
"Cry cry whine whine!"

Would you people shut the fuck up?
It's great that you love the books enough to know the difference, but really?
Does it matter that much? That you wanna watch the same exact thing you read?
Does it matter that much? That the actors don't look like the characters but are probably better actors than anyone else who auditioned?
Are you people really gonna let something as simple as the color of Grover's skin and Annabeth's hair keep you from enjoying this movie?

Just take pride that you read the books first and enjoy what's coming.
Sheesh.

gu7fufffffy

Ya wut that dude said just freakin enjoy the move my god

i didnt care if grover was black or white i dont care if annabeth is blonde or brown haired i just love the series hahahahhahhahhahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

chad

please stop using the bad words. but i agree

vinny

I saw the movie...NOTHING IN IT WAS CORRECT!!!!!!
You know, casting differences, but also PLOTLINE!
HOW DO YOU F(_)CKING MESS UP THE PLOTLINE?????????

<3Zach's baby

I haven't seen the movie but I'm one of those people that notices every little difference between the book and the movie all my friends have said I will be mad watchin that movie but idk........ did they really screw up the plotline like everyone is sayin or are we turnin in to Twilight fans and actin like every little detail matters???? honestly

<3 War, Hate, Flyleaf

Ok I hope and pray this movie isn't as screwed up as Twilight

Leila

It was worse. Because Twilight was a crap movie based on crap source material, whereas The Lightning Thief was a crap movie based on wicked fun and entertaining source material.

you people grow-up whos care if there black or white or even blue at least they can act onless you want to wacth a crapy movie where people say *cough*instead of doing it which is really crapy.but, really they messesd up the ending.

bluefire76854

P.s to me Grover does look better black because it doesn't sound right for him to be white,no offense. I LUV THE BOOKS I READ THE WHOLE SERIES :) :):)
