The synopsis for the film is as follows:
The film follows the journey of 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, a descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, as he seeks to find his father who has mysteriously disappeared. With the help of his loyal protector Butler, Artemis sets out to find him, and in doing so uncovers an ancient, underground civilisation—the amazingly advanced world of fairies. Deducing that his father’s disappearance is somehow connected to the secretive, reclusive fairy world, cunning Artemis concocts a dangerous plan—so dangerous that he ultimately finds himself in a perilous war of wits with the all-powerful fairies.
The film is directed by Kenneth Branagh and stars Ferdia Shaw, Lara McDonnell, Nonso Anozie, Judi Dench, Hong Chau, Josh Gad, Miranda Raison, Nikesh Patel, Joshua McGuire, Chi-Lin Kim, Jean-Paul Ly, Adam Basil, Hannah Flynn and Matt Townsend.
