  • it's like comparing Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST with french movie with Vincent Cassel. or like movies nowadays use "based on real events", for fantasy like stories, like wtf, which part is the real events it can be an ok movie by itself, but not as ECRANISATION. also, old lady turning into young was a weird sequence, and not in a good way

  • Dear Disney, ARTEMIS FOWL AUDIENCE is not the same as FROZEN AUDIENCE, for God's sake! (I mean little girls torturing people with the theme song...oh wait maybe they are onto something) 1:12 if it was Zachary Quinto, I would totally ignore all the flaws. But it is probably not him. I would basically accept whole cast being him, he would totally be able to do it. Butler is the closest to how I imagined the characters. Pushkin's grandfather was black (extremely famous Russian poet), so Butler being black is not contradiction to his Slavic origins. For Holly Short, I actually can imagine girl (based on her photos) looking the part. But Artemis just had to scream charisma, which I do not see in the teaser. And, obviously, making Root a woman is totally wrong, I don't care that they got a legendary actress for it (I personally not a fan of her, lest to say). I was exited, even despite everything, till the end, until I saw Disney logo (I forgot, I knew, but I forgot). They dumb down all the good parts in stories to cater to children, forgetting that children are not dumb and can take in perfectly fine a mature story (example, everyone, who read White Fang as a kid). Let's just hope we'll get a great feature for the stealing gnome. It takes a special kind of stupid to ruin this character.

  • I love how people are looking at this TEASER already and going like "THEY RUINED IT!!! THIS MINUTE AND A HALF OF FOOTAGE IS COMPLETELY UNFAITHFUL TO THE SOURCE MATERIAL!!!!! WOE IS US, DOOM TO ALL!" Like chill guys. I love the books as much as anyone, but it literally reveals nothing except that Commander Root is female (it is kind of ridiculous that over thousands of years there's never been another female LEP captain besides Holly). Frankly, I'd be more upset if Opal Koboi isn't in the film.

  • Of course the Butler has to be black.

  • Stop.

  • Let’s stay positive! Hopefully they have good reasons for the changes! A little bit of changes is sometimes for the best. LET’S ALSO FORGET THE PERCY JACKSON MOVIE!

  • I wanted this

  • Great job Disney. You made me wanna reread the books.

  • Dude I am so glad I got the kids in my library reading _Artemis Fowl_ before this movie got to them first. I haven't lost all hope for it, but I have a sinking feeling it may transcend garbage.

  • This can’t be real! There no way Disney can think they can pass this as a movie based on Artemis Fowl 👎

  • I've waited years since Colfer confirmed they were making a movie, and once again, a book adaptation bastardizes the source material . Ahh, darvit.

  • I don’t mind the race change as Kenneth Branagh is a fairly noted colour blind director but the personality’s are coming off a bit weird, I think an actual trailer with a decent scene may have been a better expose.

  • Honestly I don't understand how so many of you are angry at this trailer for "Not sticking to the books". How the hell do you know that the movie doesn't? This trailer reveals NOTHING about the story! Your assuming an entire movie based off of some characters appearances! That's plain stupid! Do I think they look perfect or even good? No, not really. Does that mean i immediately assume this movie is terrible? No! Give it a chance, like geez. I don't think how the characters look matters at all, as long as the actors put in a good and convincing performance( Except for Butler, the fuck is going on there). I think everyone should give it a chance, or at at last wait for more info about the story before assuming things.

  • Dear sweet jesus, what have you done Disney. U guys threw out a perfectly good book into the garbage and wrote some kind of garbage and called it Artemis Fowl. Like firstly, why is Butler african descent instead of Eurasian and not bald. Like his Eurasian descent and his baldness is suppose to give some kind of a military secret assassin look. When did Butler use a bow... Never. What happen to his famous sig sauer. WTF why is Root female, like by making Root female, it takes away from Holly being the first female Lep; furthermore it removes the hardships she had to face for begin female and her eventual overcoming of those sexist ideals. God i smell another Percy Jackson

  • Disney, sweetheart, I love you, you've grown up with me. You've helped me through some of my darkest moments by way of catchy cheer-me-up songs and iconic characters. You've helped me sleep at night with your fairy tales. *The being said* , no one wants to see your name on this. No one. I know you want to be hip and retro but some things are just not your cup of tea. This is more like pop cola. Stick to tea Disney.

  • Never heard of this before, didn't know it was a book but the trailer just screams bad YA adaption.

  • Getting Golden Compass (Northen Lights) flash backs.

  • Not long till a house of scorpion movie.

  • Lol I didn’t even know they were making a movie adaptation of the book

  • The scene with the healing lady, in the book she was pretty much dying when being healed from the alcohol.

  • Is this Disney’s version of men in black?

  • This is apart of my childhood. If this is bad, I will be very very angry.

  • Oh no, they didn't just make Commander Julius Root into Juliet Root, right?

  • WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY Seriously why?!?!?!?!?!?! I *wanted* to give this a chance. I really did. But what even is this crap? Butler is suddenly black (double funny because if they wanted non-white representation and had actually *read* the books, they would've realised he's *asian* ), Root is female (?) which undercuts Holly's whole character and drastically changes their dynamic, Artemis looks like the most innocent goody-bag kid ever conceived, like, the exact fucking *opposite* of what he's supposed to, all the special effects look like shit, and what the asdfghjkl Seriously, if the had intentionally *tried* to tick every single box that would piss off fans, they couldn't have done a worse job at adapting this. My last sliver of hope for the human species is officially dead and buried. Nope! Fuck this! I've been planning to go watch this movie for years now, ever since I found out there was even a *possibility* it would exist. Buuuuut no. I will not be supporting this fucking cringefest. Not after what they did to Percy Jackson. WHAT DID HUMANITY DO TO DESERVE THIS ABOMINATION

  • Just from reading the description you know this is jacked. Artemis wasnt even thinking about his father in this one. He sure as hell didnt suspect the LEP of taking him. Artemis already KNOWS to a degree what happened: He went down with the containr ship in the arctic circle. Only thing he doesnt know is if he is alive or dead. ... Disney stop please. T...T why are you doing this?

  • Decks Dark!!!

  • Please, please oh God, let this be good, and not disappointing. Because that trailer doesn't fill me with hope. Wtf is up with the first fairy they encounter?!

  • It's about fuckin time

  • I’m already certain they have messed this up! Wen they make unnecessary changed like someone’s appearance (Artemis and butler are wrong Butler is REALLY WRONG) it means they really don’t give a crap about the book! They are such a great set of books I really hope I’m wrong and they do a good job!

  • Artemis looks too innocent he has to be more of a asshole XD I don't like this already They'll probably take out the troll killing scene too or something because they need to make merchandise out of this movie

  • I hope it stays true to books or graphic novels, please. oh and YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

  • Eh, I'm not ready to write this off as bad just yet. Sure, some of the casting choices were weird, but with good enough acting and a nice script, I think they could pull it off! You DO have a good script, right Disney? RIGHT, DISNEY???

  • I'm uncertain. I really hope Disney doesn't get it's claws on Skulduggery Pleasant.

  • Disney fucked this right up.

  • The books were GREAT! I hope this is too!!😍

  • I don't want to live on the surface of the earth anymore. * descends underground, to the fairies.*

  • right well, you've gone and cocked up a perfectly good book series... again

  • Esa quiero ver!!

  • If Holly being white didn’t already fuck this over, Artemis being described in the casting call as being a “fun loving boy” would have. Yikes.

  • Artemis Fowl is absolutely my favorite book series ever, so even though the movie looks great, I am concerned about a few things like Commander Root going female, Butler being black and having hair, and the first and second books being combined, among other things.

  • I don't know what to expect...

  • In the description it says Artemis finds himself in a battle... It's supposed to be the other way round it's the fairies that find themselves going up against artemis. Dam it disney

  • Read all the books...and this is something else...Artemis fowl is more sci Fi, than the fantasy this trailer is showing.

  • they soiled it, SOILED IT!

  • I only have very very small faith in this and that's only because radiohead

  • butler is having an identity crisis

  • I bet this would be better as a noir film with much less Disney I'm getting Percy Jackson vibes here too...

  • utter shite disney conversion again ruining a series, artemis fowl is one of them rare book series that is perfect to adults and kids alike. wish disney would fuck off ruining stuff like did with star wars

  • This is really only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this trailer, and is really a nitpick more than anything, but does anyone else *hate* the fairy military uniforms and weapons? The Lower Elements Police, while they make mistakes, are made out to be this badass, high-tech, corrupt to the bone, police organization. They're like if the LAPD had wings, laser guns, and fought trolls. But these green jokers look like bad extras from the deleted scenes of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory.

  • lot of comments about Commander Root but I don't see them male or female but also what is up with butlers eyes?

  • At least they have a young boy playing as Artemis....

  • Just a short trailer and one of my favourite books is already ruined. How hard is it to stick with the books? They are beloved for a reason

  • I was hating this trailer but then I heard Radiohead t'is all good now 👌

  • Food review Food review

  • Looks like a big video game.

  • Matrix X Harry Potter?

  • At least follow the books this time.

  • Please do this right. Ive been waiting.

  • I don't like undergrounds

  • I know 7 people who auditioned for this, everyone was too tall or had a growth spurt after the first audition XD

  • To everyone who's commenting that they've been waiting for this movie since they were 10...How old are you? 12? (Also, do you want a lollipop)

  • www.imdb.com/title/tt3089630/

  • Since when did Disney own Artemis fowl

  • the books are not that long. they don't need to change anything. I've read the first three books a lot. btw butler is not black, which makes this juliet(gasp) black too! oh oh

  • This is way different then the book. And also Butler should be bald...

  • I'm fine with the actor choices and i'm fine with concessions with physical character differences, but the thing that makes me very worried is the scene at 1:10. WHY DOES ARTEMIS FOWL LOOK SHOCKED?!! HE GAVE THE SPRITE THE REJUVENATING TONIC KNOWING FULL WELL WHAT WOULD HAPPEN. He's supposed to be 3 steps ahead of everyone and ridiculously mature and knowledgeable for his age. He does not show any weakness as he sees himself as a successor to essentially a mafia boss like role, and we see him look surprised at the starting scene of the story, to something he more or less should expect to happen? Not to mention how Butler also looks shocked, and that may be even worse. That one scene is what worries me most about this adaptation.

  • STOP FUCKING EVERYTHING UP

  • C’MON PEOPLE!!! KENNETH BRANAGH DIRECTED THIS!! How could you go wrong?

  • Is anyone else mainly pissed that Artemis is a child?

  • I used to think this book was a magic book And I’m getting vibes off Percy Jackson...

  • Are we all being lied to? Are they using the books and setting them all up for when he was a kid cause he looks like a too young?! Is every one a character before the first book? Are they lying about who's who? Cause honestly I'm shook... I recognized the title before I clicked but I couldn't remember where... I kinda wish I didn't now...

  • Just remember, even after he became a good guy, after someone made fun of his athletic ability he bought out that someone's father's company to shut him up. This kid doesn't look anywhere evil enough to do something like that...

  • Why do the new Disney movies suck

  • Why did they make Butler black? He is Caucasian in the book, which is phenomanol, by the way.

  • We need men of wroth again to start making pioneering animation fairy tales based upon pan-European and pagan archetypes, Walt Disney is no longer that, that's why Disney should change it's logo, avatar and name to something else.

  • I swear to god if holly isn’t hot af I quit

  • Disney just needs to realize that if the original books were good enough to become popular and made into a movie, then they don't need to change the book to appeal to the audiences, because the books already did. What made the book intense and amazing was that Artemis Fowl, a 12 year old, was the villain, and a legit scary one, while Butler is large and intimidating. If you take away what was special about the book, then how will the movie be special? A: it won't. A Wrinkle In Time followed that strategy. No one liked it and it lost $86 million. I just don't want to see that happen to Artemis Fowl.

  • Who else does this give a Percy Jackson kinda vibe???

  • Aye stop hating on the movie if you dont like it then get tf outta the comments I like the trailer bc it gives me a Percy Jackson kinda vibe

    • Wr hate it cause we loved the books. And Yes it has the same vibe as the percy jackson Movies. But thats not a good sign

  • I don't care if this sucks, which it probably will, because this was my favourite book series as a kid and god help me I am going to watch it the very second that it's released. Even if that means taking a flight to a different time zone.

  • I'm getting Matrix vibes

  • Someone give that narrator a cough drop please...

    • The narrator is judie dench who plays for some reason the police Chief.. ...

  • Judi Dench has never sounded so hench 😂

  • Oh....oh no what have they done to Artemis fowl this is actually upsetting 😭

  • Disney can't bloody do book adaptations, add a comic in front sure, but books, definitely not

  • PERCY JACKSON FAN!

  • Am I the only one who doesn't have a problem with the Butler being black thing? I mean it's probably not very easy to find a 7 foot tall Eurasian who happens to be a good actor, can speak perfect English, looks dangerous, is bulky and so on. I don't see it as that big of a change, which is weird because I find Hermione being black the dumbest thing ever done in a movie. I'm also kinda conflicted about the Root being a woman thing cause on one hand it messes almost everything for Holly's character and on the other I think Judi Dench is gonna rock that role. I'm certain they're gonna butcher everything else though...

    • Also, why tf does Butler have hair?

  • I do get a Percy Jackson sort of vibe from this trailer, not a good sign....

  • I was excited about this. WAS. This could be a really good movie, or a Disney remake of Spy Kids.

  • ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️💜💜♋♋♋ 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💔🌎💔🌎 *Based on love alone. God sent His Son Jesus Christ to die in our place. Then on the third day rose Him from the dead.* *Now, though Jesus Christ alone. God has granted us the free gift of eternal life. He will save and heal you, if you ask Him.*

  • Sarcastically: Hey Disney! While your ruining my childhood! Can you make a third Percy Jackson movie? Or another Maximum Ride?

  • I have read the books. So far what I see looks rubbish on pared to them. This is so cringy

  • Why did a throat cancer lady do the narration ?

  • yeah disney,,,,,,,, child effects,, i hope they change that someday

  • 10 years too late. Does anyone still talk about these

  • One of my teacher recommended me a book, and i absolutely loved it, cant wait for the movie

  • men in black looks great

  • I HAVE BEEN WAITING

  • this movie can be good ..in disney they know what is greed

  • i read this whole series and it is *OK*
