Disney Shuffles Their Theatrical Release Calendar For Disney Studios, Pixar, Marvel, and Fox




UPDATE 04/16/20: Disney announced that Artemis Fowl will be available for streaming on Disney+ beginning June 12th. The fantastical epic adventure stars Ferdia Shaw, Lara McDonnell, Josh Gad, Tamara Smart, Nonso Anozie, Josh McGuire, Nikesh Patel, Adrian Scarborough, Colin Farrell, and Judi Dench.

Director Kenneth Branagh said of the announcement:

"Artemis Fowl is a true original. In challenging times, a twelve year old criminal mastermind is one heck of a traveling companion. Smart, funny, and cool as mustard, he’ll take you to new worlds, meet unforgettable characters, and mix magic with mayhem. His own family is everything to him, and (although he’d never admit it), he’d be as proud as I am that families around the world will now be able to enjoy his first amazing screen adventures together, on Disney +."
