After almost two decades of waiting, it’s finally (almost) here. In 2019, fans of Eoin Culfer’s book series will get to see the Artemis Fowl movie we’ve been dreaming of. But the Artemis Fowl movie has some of the books’ fans worried. Because it’s already clear that Disney is changing a lot of elements from the original novels. So here are some of the big things Artemis Fowl fans know the film needs to get right.
In the books, Artemis Fowl is not a good guy. Director Kenneth Branagh has talked about making movie Artemis more sympathetic. But considering that he’s meant to be a child crime boss, this does feel like it might take away something from the point of the character. Hopefully whatever Branagh is doing, it’ll make sense in context.
