'Artemis Fowl' sets June 12 debut on Disney+
Now set to make a debut on Disney+ next month, Artemis Fowl has today revealed a first movie clip. You can take a look at the scene, titled “The Irish Blessing,” in the player below and then catch Walt Disney Pictures‘ live action adaptation of Eoin Colfer‘s beloved book series when it premieres on June 12.
Descended from a long line of criminal masterminds, 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl finds himself in a battle of strength and cunning against a powerful, hidden race of fairies who may be behind his father’s disappearance. Newcomer Ferdia Shaw will play the title character, with Lara McDonnell (Love, Rosie) playing Captain Holly Short, a feisty, spirited elf, who is kidnapped by Artemis for a ransom of fairy gold.
In the underground fairy world of Haven City, Academy Award-winner Dame Judi Dench (Philomena) portrays Commander Root, the leader of the reconnaissance division of the LEPrecon, the fairy police force; and Josh Gad (Frozen) plays Mulch Diggums, a kleptomaniac dwarf, who attempts to help rescue Holly.
Tamara Smart, Nonso Anozie and Colin Farrell also star in the Kenneth Branagh film.
