The plot: what is it all about?
Artemis Fowl is a 12-year-old genius who lives with his bodyguard in a mansion in Ireland. Before the story begins, his criminal's father was missing, along with the millions of people from the Fowl family, and his mother was detached from reality.
Artemis has been investigating the existence of the underground fairy tale world for quite some time and received a copy of his book of the people through an alcoholic sprite in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. He translates the gnommese runes and uses the information to kidnap the elite officer and fee Holly Short of the Lower Elements Police (LEP) and hold her in the mansion of his family.
The hostage sees Artemis match wit – and his bodyguard, Butler, match physical strength – with a host of other characters from the fairy world, including LEPrecon Commander Julius Root, tech genius centaur Foaly, and criminal kleptomaniac dwarf Mulch Diggums.
The first of the eight-book Artemis Fowl series, written by the Irish author Eoin Colfer, was released almost two decades ago, in 2001 (and boy makes me feel old).
Kenneth Branagh, the film's director, said it took a while because translating Colfer's book to the screen & # 39; a challenge & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; It took quite some time to find the balance between humor and emotion and magic and the contemporary world, "Branagh told ET Online in November." You are talking about the many types of fairies, elves, sprits , trolls [and] goblins that live beneath the earth and at the same time you want a kind of contemporary modern world that embraces technology.
