Artemis Fowl is the newest YA book series hoping to transition to a successful Film Franchise. Disney is making the film with Thor director Kenneth Branagh directing. The film stars Ferdia Shaw as 12 year old genius Artemis Fowl. The film also stars Nonso Anoziee, Lara McDonnell, Tamara Smart, Josh Gad, and Judi Dench.

Disney’s “Artemis Fowl,” based on the beloved book by Eoin Colfer, is a fantastical, spellbinding adventure that follows the journey of 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, a descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, as he seeks to find his father who has mysteriously disappeared. With the help of his loyal protector Butler, Artemis sets out to find him, and in doing so uncovers an ancient, underground civilization—the amazingly advanced world of fairies. Deducing that his father’s disappearance is somehow connected to the secretive, reclusive fairy world, cunning Artemis concocts a dangerous plan—so dangerous that he ultimately finds himself in a perilous war of wits with the all-powerful fairies.
