A young boy discovers an underground imaginary world with magical creatures capable of doing seemingly impossible things in the first trailer of Kenneth Branagh's "Artemis Fowl".
"Human greed is what drove us underground," sings the harsh voice narrator as we meet the 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl.
He is the antihero of the science fiction / fantasy bestseller series Eoin Colfer and the descendant of a long lineage of criminal geniuses who finds himself in a battle of strength and cunning against a powerful race hidden of fairies who could be behind the disappearing father.
The film stars Ferdia Shaw, Lara McDonnell, Tamara Smart, Nonzo Anozie, with Josh Gad and Judi Dench.
Judy Hofflund and Kenneth Branagh produce with Angus More Gordon and Matthew Jenkins as Executive Producers. The script, based on the first two books in Colfer's eight-book series, is by Conor McPherson.
Disney's "Artemis Fowl" is scheduled to be released on August 9, 2019.
