The sequel finds Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman), the son of Poseidon, continuing his epic journey to fulfill his destiny, as he teams with his demigod friends (played by Alexandra Daddario and Douglas Smith) to retrieve the Golden Fleece, which has the power to save their home and training ground, Camp Half-Blood.

Both Birdsong and Pyle recently appeared in films nominated for Best Picture at last weekend's Academy Awards celebration. Birdsong had a role in The Descendants while Pyle appeared in the night's big winner, The Artist. Brown, meanwhile, is best known for her role as Shirley on NBC's "Community."

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters will be directed by Thor Freudenthal and is set for release on March 27, 2013.
