Directed by Kenneth Branagh, ARTEMIS FOWL is based on Irish author Eoin Colfer's bestselling, beloved books about the titular Artemis (Ferdia Shaw), a child prodigy who comes from a long line of criminal masterminds. The movie opens with a gruff man (Josh Gad) in custody, explaining to mysterious officials that Artemis Fowl II is a kid who shouldn't be underestimated. He proceeds to tell Artemis' story. When Artemis Fowl Sr. (Colin Farrell) goes missing, Artemis II quickly discovers that his father has been taken hostage and that he must now retrieve a priceless artifact that his dad stole. With the help of his family butler, Domovoi Butler (Nonso Anozie), Artemis comes to terms with the fact that a hidden magical world co-exists with the human world and that he must somehow dive into that world to save his dad. Artemis kidnaps Holly Short (Lara McDonnell), a young fairy from the Lower Elements Police (LEPrecon), to demand his own ransom. Meanwhile, Commander Root (Judi Dench), the head of the LEPrecon forces, intervenes to rescue Holly but realizes there are fairy traitors hiding among her ranks.
