We are still a few months away from Disney’s long in development adaptation of Artemis Fowl. Now thanks to a new 2020 calendar, we get a new look at the film.
The film was originally slated for release this past August, but was rescheduled earlier this year, as Maleficent, Jungle Cruise, and Cruella were also shuffled. It is unclear why Artemis Fowl was moved 10 months back at this time.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh and based on the beloved book by Eoin Colfer, Artemis Fowl follows 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, a descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, as he finds himself in a battle of strength and cunning against a powerful, hidden race of fairies who may be behind his father’s disappearance.
The film stars Ferdia Shaw, Lara McDonnell, Tamara Smart, Nonzo Anozie, with Josh Gad, and Judi Dench. Judy Hofflund and Kenneth Branagh are producing with Angus More Gordon and Matthew Jenkins serving as executive producers. The screenplay is by Conor McPherson.
Disney’s Artemis Fowl will hit theaters on May 29, 2020.
