If you happened to set foot in the illuminated YA section of a Borders Books (RIP) in the late 90s, you would definitely fall on one of these fantastic cardboard plugs. putting Eoin Colfer Artemis Fowl books and their noisy covers on the glorious display. "Read these books," shouted the displays. "They will become movies someday." This day has finally arrived.
The promise of a Artemis Fowl The film is part of the legend of YA, mainly because the project was stuck in development almost as long as the project started making people talk about it several years ago. For a while, it seemed like the film could never come to fruition even after a casting was announced and Kenneth Branagh was attached to the production. But against all hope, Artemis Fowl actually comes to the movies and Disney announced the latest development by unleashing an unexpected trailer in the middle of the night (at least for the United States).
This is only a trailer and is not really interested in the story of the alleged criminal billionaire Artemis (Ferdia Shaw) and his bodyguard, Domovoi Butler (Nonso Anozie ), who decided to steal the hidden society of fairies living in the crust of the world. But at least some of the teaser's snapshots will remind anyone who reads at least the first Artemis Fowl book of how strangely epic the story was.
Lady Judi Dench signed to play Commander Root, Josh Gash in the role of Mulch Diggums and Lara McDonnell in the role of Captain Holly Short, the distribution of the film is reason enough to keep an eye on Artemis Fowl before its release date of August 9, 2019. It must be asked, however, if this is a franchise that everyone – especially the youngest – is still in demand.
