Disney’s new film Artemis Fowl will be streaming exclusively on Disney+, beginning Friday, June 12.
Due to coronavirus, Disney has changed its strategy when it comes to movie premieres, delaying the premieres of both Black Widow and Mulan. The company also made the decision to skip the theater entirely for Artemis Fowl and will take the film straight to streaming.
Artemis Fowl is based on the young adult novel series by Eoin Colfer, telling the story of a 12-year-old genius and descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds. He soon finds himself in an epic battle against a race of powerful underground fairies who may be behind his father’s disappearance. The film is “a fantastical epic adventure, resplendent with beautiful landscapes and spectacular visual effects that will transport viewers to magical new worlds.”
“Artemis Fowl is a true original. In challenging times, a twelve year old criminal mastermind is one heck of a travelling companion,” said director Kenneth Branagh. “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 +”
