Teaser trailer for Artemis Fowl

The first trailer has been released for Disney’s Artemis Fowl, which is filming in England, Northern Ireland and Ho Chi Minh City. Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the movie is based on the first book of Eoin Colfer’s bestselling series of novels that tell the story of 12-year-old genius Artemis (Ferdia Shaw).

Descended from a long line of criminal masterminds, Artemis finds himself in a battle against a powerful, hidden race of fairies who may be responsible for his father’s disappearance.

The movie also stars Lara McDonell as elf Captain Holly Short, Dame Judi Dench as Commander Root, the leader of the reconnaissance division of the fairy police force, and Josh Gad as kleptomaniac dwarf Mulch Diggums.

The movie will be released in cinemas in August 2019, and here’s a sneak peek:
