It might not be getting a theatrical release but we can finally see Artemis Fowl really soon. The new trailer for the fantasy flick reveals when it will begin streaming on Disney+.
The trailer opens with Artemis' father being revealed to be a criminal mastermind but that's not really a big deal. After all, the young boy has been training for this his entire life and is now set to take on his father's footsteps.
It isn't long before young Artemis discovers that a certain artifact is set to destroy the world. The boy then decides that he will be needing some help from a thief as well as a fairy. Needless to say, it's going to be one hell of an adventure for this future criminal mastermind.
If you're getting major James Bond vibes from the trailer, that's probably because it's supposed to look that way. After all, Artemis was written by Eoin Colfer to be something of a Bond villain in the making with a little bit of the supernatural on his side. If you've always wanted to see how someone ends up becoming a Bond villain, this could be the film for you.
The Kenneth Branagh adaptation of Colfer's books was initially set to premiere in theaters on May 29. However, Disney has cancelled the film's theatrical release due to the Coronavirus outbreak. It was then decided that the fantasy flick will go straight to streaming instead. Artemis Fowl will now stream on Disney+ starting June 12
