The Parlapanides Brothers Wanted Blood of Zeus True Greek

December 12, 2020

With a prominent spot on the Netflix carousel of films, Blood of Zeus, the anime film of creators Vlas and Charley Parlapanides, has a built-in audience of those who love Greek myths, but they said they were determined to make this more Greek than the kind of myth Hollywood had been spitting out. 

It follows Zeus's son and demigod Heron, who wants to stop demons and giants and is designed to last as long as five seasons, giving the brothers from New Jersey another platform. 

They grew up hearing stories of Greek mythology from their grandmother, said Highlander News, but said they didn't want this show to follow superhero patterns for American audiences, but showcase real Greek myth. 

This is no Clash of the Titans, a film about Greek gods, although they didn't want the audience to think that American interpretation of Greek mythology was wrong. 

They said they just wanted to make the story more authentic. The brothers have other works that deal with Greek mythology, like the 2011 film Immortals, for which they were script writers but this is their first original show as writers and creators.
