Disney has released a new trailer and poster art for its upcoming adaptation of Eoin Colfer’s best-selling Irish fantasy-adventure novel, Artemis Fowl.

The film makes its long-awaited release in Irish Cinemas on May 29, 2020.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the film follows the journey of 12-year-old criminal mastermind Artemis as he searches for his missing father. Descended from a long line of criminal masterminds, Artemis finds himself in a battle of strength and cunning against a powerful, hidden race of fairies who may be behind his father’s disappearance.

“Disney and Kenneth Branagh have magically found a way to extract my imagination, mixed in a dollop of Disney magic and projected the enchanted concoction onto the silver screen,” said Irish author, Eoin Colfer. “I am very excited for audiences to see the film.”

Artemis Fowl stars Irish newcomer Ferdia Shaw, Lara McDonnell, Josh Gad, Tamara Smart, Nonso Anozie, Josh McGuire, Nikesh Patel and Adrian Scarborough, with Colin Farrell and Judi Dench. Kenneth Branagh, p.g.a. and Judy Hofflund, p.g.a. are producing with Angus More Gordon and Matthew Jenkins serving as executive producers. Conor McPherson and Hamish McColl wrote the screenplay.
“Eoin Colfer created a landmark series of books and a totally original world of characters,” said director Kenneth Branagh.  “We hope that fans familiar with this charismatic anti-hero will also join a first-time cinema audience in enjoying a sea of surprises – cunning twists and turns in a typical Artemis Fowl style.”

“His Irish adventures are breathless, exhilarating, energized escapades on a truly global scale. Inspired by his legendary cheekiness and wit, we’ve been privileged to introduce the myth from the page and hopefully create a new hero for the big screen. It’s been a real joy to be on that ride.”

Disney’s Artemis Fowl opens in Irish Cinemas on May 29, 2020.
