Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief
Transcript of Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief
Pearl #2: In the Parthenon in Nashville, they saw that the pearl was located on Athena's crown. They tried on the winged shoes (courtesy of Luke) to grab the pearl and when they did, the janitors turned into a hydra (another monster from Greek mythology). They couldn't defeat it by cutting its heads off because it would grow back two more heads in place of one. They defeated the hydra by turning it into stone using Medusa's head.
Pearl #3: The last pearl was located in the Lotus Casino in Vegas. There they stayed for 5 days because they were in a trance from the enchanted lotus flowers that they were eating. Once Percy realized that they were being trapped inside the casino, they tried to escape causing the employees of the Lotus Casino to try and stop them. Percy takes the pearl from one of the roulette tables and they steal the showcase car and make their way to Hollywood. Once Percy returned the lightning bolt to Zeus, there was peace between the gods again. Percy asked Zeus to save Grover from the Underworld because without him, the lightning bolt would not have been returned. He also told Zeus about Luke and how he wanted to start a war between the gods because of his hatred for the gods. Poseidon begs Zeus to let him talk to Percy for just a bit and he explains that although he's never been there throughout his life, he's been watching and guiding Percy when he needed it the most. Back at Camp Half Blood, Percy is congratulated and praised by his other camp members and he is scolded but he also says that Percy is now his favorite student. Later on, Percy sees Annabeth and the attraction between the two can be seen. Monsters Hydra Minotaur Medusa Mrs. Dodds/ Fury Percy Jackson is the apocalyptic hero because he goes on a quest to make sure that the gods do not start a war with each other. Apocalyptic Hero Loyal Retainer Grover is the loyal retainer because he protects Percy and he emanates Percy's hero characteristics. Mentor Chiron is Percy's mentor from the beginning because he gives Percy his sword, Riptide, to serve him in his quest. He also teaches Percy how to fight with swords and about the gods and demigods. The Platonic Ideal Annabeth is the platonic ideal because she is a source of inspiration to Percy. Also, she is both smart and beautiful to which Percy is attracted to. The Shape Shifter Luke is a shape shifter in the movie because he is seen to be helping Percy out in his quest in the beginning but it turns out that the only purpose for him doing so was to get Percy in trouble and start a war with the gods. Adults/ Gods Zeus Persephone Sally Jackson is the damsel in distress because she needs to be rescued by Percy. She is also used as a trap to lure Percy to the Underworld so that Hades could take the lightning bolt from him. Hades Sally Jackson Damsel in Distress Poseidon Supernatural Intervention The Enemy Devil Figure The Evil Figure with an Ultimately Good Heart Herald Creature of Nightmare Creature of Nightmare The Threshold Guardian The Quest Symbols: The Magical Weapon The Threshold Riptide Camp Half Blood Zeus' Master Bolt Heaven (Mount Olympus) vs. Hell (the Underworld) Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief has a plot archetype of the Quest because of the fact that Percy was just a boy who was called on a task to return the lightning bolt that he was accused of having stolen. He then goes out on a quest to also find his mother who's being held captive by Hades. If Percy were to fail both his quest, a war would start between the gods of Olympus and his mother would be killed by Hades. Poseidon is the supernatural intervention because whenever Percy is in trouble, he speaks inside Percy's head and tells him what to do to help him out and basically save his life. Zeus is the enemy in this movie because he has the greatest power to destroy the rest of the gods of Olympus and even Percy and his loved ones if he is not pleased with the results of Percy's quest. Hades is the devil figure because he is the god of the Underworld so he is commonly depicted as some dark, evil, being. Persephone is the evil figure with an ultimately good heart because she looked like she sided with Hades at first, when he told her to open the fireplace, but she knocked out Hades and set Percy and the gang free. Mrs. Dodds/ the fury is the herald because if it did not attack Percy Jackson then Chiron would not have sent him to the camp, starting a whole chain of events leading to Percy's quest. Monster that threatens the life of Percy, Annabeth and Grover to stop them from getting one of Persephone's pearls. Threatens the life of Percy, Annabeth and Grover so that they would not be able to get one of Persephone's pearls to escape the Underworld. The Minotaur is the threshold guardian because it tested Percy's courage in killing it and his worthiness to enter Camp Half Blood. If Percy had been weak and did not defend himself against the Minotaur then it would have proved that he wasn't worthy to be a demigod hero, therefore not worthy to do his quest.
