Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightening Thief on DVD

This week is a week my girls have been looking forward to since they first saw Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightening Thief in the theaters. This is the week it came out on video. They loved the movie and to be honest so did I. After my 9 year old saw it she wanted to read the book right away. I think any movie that encourages reading is a good thing. I have been meaning to read the books as well.

Anyway the movie came out on DVD and Blu-ray this week. I picked it up on Blu-ray on Tuesday. My daughter went to watch it with her cousin on Tuesday and they had a great time. Now since we got the movie they have both watched it about 4 times. They love it. When I finally had time to watch it last night they sat down with me and watched it again. Truly a great movie that I hope will be the first of many Percy Jackson movies. It is just such a fun movie that if you didn't get a chance to see in the theaters I highly recommend you give it a try now. You won't be disappointed.

I caught a bit of the beginning of the movie over at my sisters house and I have to tell you, unless your girls understand that the movies aren't always like the book, they might get confused. We've read the books here and the beginning of the movie is already different from the book. I'm still looking forward to seeing the rest of the movie and I'm hoping beyond hope that they haven't changed TOO much of it from the book. Your girls will LOVE the books, we have the whole series! Great reads, even for this 46 yr. old!!
