Trailer: ‘Artemis Fowl’- a gripping fantasy film from Disney

Disney has launched a poster and the official teaser trailer for upcoming fantasy film,  Artemis Fowl. Based on the young adult fantasy graphic novel of the same name by Eoin Colfer, the film revolves around a 12-year-old genius, Artemis Fowl, who wages a war against fairies in an underground society for making his father disappear.

While looking for his dad, with the help of a family protector named Butler, Artemis stumbles upon an ancient, underground civilisation filled with fairies. The boy is convinced that this group of individuals has something to do with the disappearance of his father; thus the war.

The trailer is narrated by a fairy (Judi Dench) from the underground city and is addressed to Fowl. “Human greed is what drove us underground all those years ago,.To escape from your rapacious appetite. I warn you, boy. You are not prepared for the truth,” she says. The camera gradually travels underground to reveal a giant teeming city that is dark and mysterious.

Ferdia Shaw stars as Artemis Fowl in the anticipated Disney picture, alongside Lara McDonnell, Judi Dench, Josh Gad, Hong Chau, Nonso Anozie, Tamara Smart, and Miranda Raison, among others. Directed by Kenneth Branagh, Artemis Fowl is scheduled to release in US theaters on 9 August, 2019.
