The new Disney + children’s series Percy Jackson and the Olympians premiered on the streaming platform yesterday and, yes, if the first two released episodes are anything to go by, this one looks a lot better than the film series preceding it.
After all the cast performances are excellent, especially Walker Scobell as Percy, the cinematography and special effects are nicely done, and the story sticks very close to that of the books.
That the drama kicked off just a few minutes into the first episode with Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Logical’ playing as Percy arrives home and sees his mother, Sally, sitting out in the rain is also a nice bonus.
When did Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Logical‘ come out?
The song was released in September, 2023 as one of the tracks from the American singer’s second studio album Guts.
‘Logical‘ was not one of the album’s three singles, but its inclusion on the album did help it become a massive worldwide hit going on to chart in 30 countries as it did.
The track also hit #1 in Australia, Belgium, Canada, the Netherlands, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, the UK and the United States.
In the U.S., Guts charted at #1 on three charts, including on the Billboard 200.
The song itself was co-written by Olivia Rodrigo, Dan Nigro and Julia Michaels, and was written from Rodrigo’s perspective about being in a prior relationship where she desperately wanted the guy to be better than he was.
So much so, even fooling herself that she could fix him:
And now you got me thinkin’
Two plus two equals five
And I’m the love of your life
‘Cause if rain don’t pour and sun don’t shine
Then changing you is possible
No, love is never logical
Listen to Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Logical‘ as heard on the first episode of Percy Jackson and the Olympians in the video, and via the American singer’s Guts album.
The song itself is made even more beautiful with her throaty, sexy vocals.
The first two episodes of the 8-episode Percy Jackson and the Olympians is now streaming on Disney +.
