A brand-new Disney+ exclusive, Disney’s Artemis Fowl is based on the first in a series of bestselling books by acclaimed Irish author Eoin Colfer, and is centered around a cool, intelligent and confident 12-year-old who goes on a mission to find his father who has been mysteriously kidnapped. 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, Artemis concocts a dangerous plan – so dangerous that he ultimately finds himself in a perilous war of wits with the all-powerful fairies.
