‘Artemis Fowl’ will be released directly on Disney’s streaming platform on June 12 due to the impossibility of releasing it in cinemas due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Many fans have been waiting for a film about ‘Artemis Fowl’, based on Eoin Colfer’s book, for almost 20 years. With less than four weeks to go, Disney+ has released a new clip in which we have further details about this young criminal (and the high technology he has).
The family adventure was supposed to be released in cinemas, but it will finally arrive on June 12 at Disney+. In this fantastic adventure, we will follow the 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, descendant of a long line of criminals, as she desperately tries to save her father, who has been kidnapped. To pay his ransom, Artemis must infiltrate an ancient underground civilization, the incredibly advanced world of the fairies, and take the kidnapper, Aculos, the most powerful and coveted magic device of the fairies, with the consequent dangerous mission that it entails.
Artemis Fowl will cover the first in the series of books on which the film is based. And, hopefully, it will lay the groundwork for adapting the rest of the books to the movie format.
Conor McPherson and Hamish McColl have written the script for the film, which is directed by Kenneth Branagh and headline by the debutant Ferdia Shaw. The cast includes Lara McDonnell, Josh Gad, Tamara Smart, Nonzo Anozie, along with Colin Farrell and Judi Dench.
