Artemis Fowl is an adaptation from a series of books by Eion Colfer and heading from closed theaters to Disney+ subscribers, yes, it’s skipping VOD entirely.
How faithful this remains to the books will be up to others to review, as I’m not planning on reading any of the books before watching.
The Lovebirds (Netflix) and My Spy (Amazon Prime Video) are taking the same path straight to streaming.
Author Eoin Colfer has come a long way since his primary school teaching days when in 1991, his first Artemis Fowl book was published and he went on to write seven more.Artemis Fowl Author Eoin Colfer Thanks Wife for Books’ Success
There are some very polished special effects in the trailer. It looks and is an expensive movie with a budget of $125 million. This isn’t the most expensive straight to streaming channel movies, as I think that award goes to The Irishman, but props to Disney for giving this to subscribers. Whether or not this movie is good we’ll soon find out. I’m like 3/10 in interest on seeing this based on the trailer. You?
Artemis Fowl will be available for streaming on Disney+ on June 12, 2020.
