Go behind the scenes of 'Artemis Fowl' in a new featurette

On the heels of an all new Artemis Fowl movie trailerWalt Disney Pictures is now delivering another look at the upcoming Eoin Colfer adaptation, this time in the form of a behind the scenes featurette. In the player below, you can take a look inside the production with insight from director Kenneth Branagh and Colfer himself.

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.

Also starring Tamara Smart, Nonso Anozie and Colin Farrell, Artemis Fowl hits theaters May 29.
