Boy wizards make boring heroes. In fact, heroes make boring heroes. Deep down, what the people really want is a villain. Artemis Fowl is the protagonist we deserve.
Based on the popular book series by Eoin Colfer, Artemis Fowl tells the story of a plucky, precocious, 12-year-old criminal mastermind. He comes from a long line of criminals and is more than happy to follow in his family’s footsteps. As his father has gone missing, it’s up to Fowl to find him. This would all be easily done if it weren’t for the fact that his dad landed in a magical world where fairies exist. Now, Fowl must team up with a dwarf and a fairy to rescue his missing father, while avoiding the magical authorities along the way.
If it sounds like the making of a summer blockbuster, it’s because it was supposed to be one. But now, it’s available to stream in your living room on Disney+.
