‘Artemis Fowl’ Releasing to Disney+ on June 12th


During the Disney Family Sing-A-Long the Disney+ release date was announced for Artemis Fowl.  The new film will release on June 12th.

Originally scheduled for a theatrical release on May 29th, the film is now being sent to Disney+ over the Coronavirus shut-downs. As it stands Disney has moved several of their upcoming movies until later this year and even into 2021. Except for Artemis Fowl which will now go direct to the streaming arm.

I do wonder if more films will be shifted over to Disney+ releases, if the shut-down continues to move on past July. Hopefully that won’t be the case.

Here’s the Trailer:

The film is , directed by Kenneth Branagh and based on a popular book series by author Eoin Colfer. It’s about “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.

When the first trailer dropped it caused some controversy with fans of the book series, because they felt it was changed too much, which is the problem with constantly adapting books and other IP. It ended up being widely covered in pop culture media.

Hopefully, when people can see the entire film, the changes will work out for the better. I’ve seen it happen in films like Stardust. Fan will find out when the film the film airs on Disney+.

I admit, I haven’t read the book series, so I don’t have any preconceived opinions on it. I do want to check it out.

Artemis Fowl will debut at Disney+ on June 12th.
