Disney’s new live-action film “Artemis Fowl” will stream exclusively on Disney + beginning Friday, June 12.
Based on the best-selling young adult book by Ireland’s own Eoin Colfer, Disney’s “Artemis Fowl,” is described as “a fantastical, spellbinding adventure that follows the journey of 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, a descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, as he desperately tries to save his father who has been kidnapped”.
“Artemis Fowl” stars Irish youngster Ferdia Shaw as the criminal mastermind alongside fellow Irish actors Colin Farrell and Lara McDonnell. The film also features Josh Gad, Tamara Smart, Nonso Anozie, Josh McGuire, Nikesh Patel and Adrian Scarborough and Judi Dench.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh, “Artemis Fowl” features beautiful landscapes and spectacular visual effects that will transport viewers to magical new worlds.
Branagh said, “Artemis Fowl is a true original. In challenging times, a twelve year old criminal mastermind is one heck of a travelling companion. Smart, funny, and cool as mustard, he’ll take you to new worlds, meet unforgettable characters, and mix magic with mayhem. His own family is everything to him, and (although he’d never admit it), he’d be as proud as I am that families around the world will now be able to enjoy his first amazing screen adventures together, on Disney +.”
