The Walt Disney Studios has released the first teaser trailer for Artemis Fowl. It was a late night (or very early morning) trailer drop for the Kenneth Branagh film, but the footage offered looks interesting. Aside from remakes of the studio’s animated classics, this could be Disney’s most promising live-action film in some time.
You can also see a new poster and official still from the film below, followed by a synopsis.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh and based on the beloved book by Eoin Colfer, ARTEMIS FOWL follows 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, a descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, as he finds himself in a battle of strength and cunning against a powerful, hidden race of fairies who may be behind his father’s disappearance.
The film stars Ferdia Shaw, Lara McDonnell, Tamara Smart, Nonzo Anozie, with Josh Gad, and Judi Dench. Judy Hofflund and Kenneth Branagh are producing with Angus More Gordon and Matthew Jenkins serving as executive producers. The screenplay is by Conor McPherson.
Artemis Fowl arrives in theaters August 9, 2019.
