…Fowl or Foe?
Disney has released a trailer for Artemis Fowl, an adaptation of the book series of the same name. You can watch the trailer below:
“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.”

Fans have already criticised the trailer for seemingly neglecting the source material in favour of their own take on the series, which may be reflected in reviews if this truth comes to pass after release.
Artemis Fowl stars Ferdia Shaw, Lara McDonnell, Josh Gad, Tamara Smart, Nonso Anozie, Josh McGuire, Nikesh Patel, Adrian Scarborough, Miranda Raison, Colin Farrell and Judi Dench. Kenneth Branagh is directing the movie, while Conor McPherson and Hamish McColl wrote the screenplay.
Artemis Fowl is set for a May 29th 2020 release date.
