Artemis Fowl Coming to Theaters May 29, 2020
The Artemis Fowl movie is actually happening and the first trailer is here!
Reading is something that is very important for kids as well as adults, and while I’ve heard of this book before I haven’t read it. But that is going to be changing very soon, as I just placed my order for the book, so I will know just what to expect when I watch the movie. The movie is directed by Kenneth Branagh and based on the beloved book by Eoin Colfer.
The Walt Disney Studios announced on April 3, 2020 that it will debut its new live-action feature film “Artemis Fowl” exclusively on Disney+. The release date will be announced soon.
Based on the best-selling young adult book by Eoin Colfer, “Artemis Fowl” stars newcomer Ferdia Shaw in the title role alongside Lara McDonnell, Josh Gad, Tamara Smart, Nonso Anozie, Josh McGuire, Nikesh Patel and Adrian Scarborough, with Colin Farrell and Judi Dench.
“With audiences largely unable to attend theatres in the current environment, we are thrilled to offer the premiere of ‘Artemis Fowl’ on Disney+,” said Ricky Strauss, President, Content & Marketing, Disney+. “Director Kenneth Branagh and his spectacular cast take viewers right into the vibrant, fantasy world of the beloved book, which fans have been waiting to see brought to life onscreen for years. It’s great family entertainment that is the perfect addition to Disney+’s summer lineup.”
In this fantastical, spellbinding adventure, 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl (Shaw), a descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, embarks on a journey to find his father (Farrell), who has mysteriously disappeared. With the help of his loyal protector Butler (Anozie), Artemis sets out to find him, and in doing so uncovers an ancient, underground civilization—the amazingly advanced world of fairies. Deducing that his father’s disappearance is somehow connected to the secretive, reclusive fairy world, cunning Artemis concocts a dangerous plan—so dangerous that he ultimately finds himself in a perilous war of wits with the all-powerful fairies.
Kenneth Branagh, p.g.a. and Judy Hofflund, p.g.a. are producing with Angus More Gordon and Matthew Jenkins serving as executive producers. Conor McPherson and Hamish McColl wrote the screenplay.
The film had originally been scheduled for a theatrical release in the U.S. on May 29, 2020.
