Disney+ is now streaming the film Artemis Fowl in Canada, as of today. The movie was originally set to release in August 2019 in theatres, but was delayed after Disney acquired Fox and also pushed further back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The synopsis of the movie, directed by Kenneth Branagh with a whopping budget of $125 million USD, is below:
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.
Earlier reviews of the movie are not very good, with Rotten Tomatoes giving it a ‘Tomatometer’ score of 11%, but your kids may enjoy this film.
