Best young adult fantasy series: 'Harry Potter' or 'Percy Jackson'?

Fans of "Percy Jackson" have campaigned for Netflix to reboot the series, and now its author, Rick Riordan, is meeting with Disney. The books were adapted into two films back in 2010 and 2013, but some critics argue the movies stunk and the franchise is deserving of a reboot. Although "Percy Jackson" never eclipsed the commercial success of "Harry Potter," some fans still compare the two. While "Percy Jackson" might deserve its due, the "Harry Potter" movie franchise has already made $7.7 billion globally at the box office. But which series is your favorite?

But does the "Percy Jackson" series truly have the same level of recognition as "Harry Potter"?

Even with the similarities of young adult fantasy, "Harry Potter" is in a league of its own. The franchise grossed $7.7 billion worldwide at the box office, while the "Percy Jackson" series only made $426 million globally between two films. "Harry Potter" is an ongoing book series and movie franchise with a spinoff series of books and films. The series even introduced the popular Broadway play "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" in 2018, after success on London's West End, which started in 2016.
