Disney is turning the famous Artemis Fowl book into a live-action adventure movie. It is unknown at this time if they’ll do all eight books or not. The series was written by Eoin Colfer and the first book came out in 2001. The plot of the first book focuses on the twelve-year-old boy who is a genius, millionaire, and criminal mastermind. One day unbeknownst to him he kidnaps the fairy Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit.
But unlike Disney’s version of fairies, these ones are more like the ones in actual folk tales. Meaning they’re really dangerous tricksters who can cause a lot of harm. This series is a sci-fi magical adventure about the young Irish boy Artemis Fowl. The Disney plot focuses on Fowl who kidnaps the fairy for ransom in order to fund his search for his missing father. The film is expected to come out sometime in August of 2019 and the first trailer was recently released.
