November 2018, that was when Disney released the first trailer for their long in development film, Artemis Fowl. Fast forward fifteen months later, the studio has finally released a brand new trailer for the film.
Check out the new trailer and poster below:
Eoin Colfer, Author of Artemis Fowl released a statement sharing his excitement for the feature.
“Disney and Kenneth Branagh have magically found a way to extract my imagination, mixed in a dollop of Disney magic and projected the enchanted concoction onto the silver screen. I am very excited for audiences to see the film.”
Director Kenneth Branagh also released a statement sharing what audiences can expect from the fantasy adventure.
“Eoin Colfer created a landmark series of books and a totally original world of characters. We hope that fans familiar with this charismatic anti-hero, will also join a first-time cinema audience in enjoying a sea of surprises – cunning twists and turns in a typical Artemis Fowl style. His Irish adventures are breathless, exhilarating, energized escapades on a truly global scale. Inspired by his legendary cheekiness and wit, we’ve been privileged to introduce the myth from the page and hopefully create a new hero for the big screen. It’s been a real joy to be on that ride.”
Disney’s Artemis Fowl, based on the beloved book by Eoin Colfer, is a fantastical, spellbinding adventure that follows the journey of 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, a descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, as he seeks to find his father who has mysteriously disappeared. With the help of his loyal protector Butler, Artemis sets out to find him, and in doing so uncovers an ancient, underground civilization—the amazingly advanced world of fairies. Deducing that his father’s disappearance is somehow connected to the secretive, reclusive fairy world, cunning Artemis concocts a dangerous plan—so dangerous that he ultimately finds himself in a perilous war of wits with the all-powerful fairies
Directed by Kenneth Branagh (Cinderella) the film stars newcomer Ferdia Shaw, Lara McDonnell (Walk Invisible), Josh Gad (Frozen), Tamara Smart (The Worst Witch), Nonso Anozie (Cinderella), Josh McGuire (About Time), Nikesh Patel (London Has Fallen), and Adrian Scarborough (1917), with Colin Farrell (Saving Mr. Banks) and Judi Dench (Skyfall).
