It's time to believe in the 'Artemis Fowl' trailer

Walt Disney Pictures has released the first trailer for the upcoming “Artemis Fowl,” director Kenneth Branagh’s take on the bestselling book series by Eoin Colfer. Check it out in the player below and take a look at the film’s poster design at the bottom of this page.

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.

“Artemis Fowl” hits theaters August 9, 2019.
