Remember the name. Arriving earlier than expected, Disney has confirmed that Kenneth Branagh’s Irish themed sci-fi fantasy ‘Artemis Fowl’ is set to arrive on its Disney+ service worldwide on June 12th.
In a statement, Branagh said “Artemis Fowl is a true original. In challenging times, a 12-year-old criminal mastermind is one heck of a travelling companion. “Smart, funny, and cool as mustard, he’ll take you to new worlds, meet unforgettable characters, and mix magic with mayhem. His own family is everything to him, and (although he’d never admit it), he’d be as proud as I am that families around the world will now be able to enjoy his first amazing screen adventures together, on Disney +.”
Based on the beloved book by Irish author 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 Irish newcomer Ferdia Shaw in the title role, alongside Lara McDonnell, Colin Farrell, Tamara Smart, Nonzo Anozie, with Josh Gad, and Judi Dench.
ARTEMIS FOWL is streaming on Disney+ exclusively on June 12.
