'Artemis Fowl' sets June 12 debut on Disney+
Previously announced for a Disney+ debut, Artemis Fowl will officially arrive on the streaming service beginning June 12. In making the announcement, Walt Disney Pictures also released a new trailer for the adaptation of Eoin Colfer‘s beloved book series. Check it out in the player below!
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.
