Disney is really shitty at making remakes isn't it.
The fairies do not look NEARLY tactical enough.

Trailer by itself? Lit. Trailer knowing what the books are like? Ew. Female Root is a mistake. C’mon Disney. You have a black butler. Holly is already making a feminist statement but I guess that’s not good enough?? Gotta make the patriarchy female totally erasing not only plot points but important aspects of individual characters and character arcs???

For some reason it reminds me of Ciel from Black Butler

When I saw "Haven City Express" I almost spat my coffee out because I thought it was a Jak and Daxter film, then when I realised it was just more of hollywoods stupid bullshit I poured the rest of the coffee over the computer!

I’m going to be THAT guy and say it will more than likely not live up to my own set of expectations that I have created for what I want for the film. I hope I am sorely wrong.

Why did you have to bring Radiohead into this? I love Radiohead so much and if this is gonna be anything like Aladdin 2019 (and of this as bad as people are saying and as it looks in my personal opinion), then leave Radiohead out of it, I don’t want their name to be tainted like this

I already feel how I will hate this movie. What the hell with Dvoresky??? By the book he is tall, strong, bold white guy. I understand Disney want to be "talerant", but what they do is opposite. I'm so disappointed and really hope something happen and this movie would be never released.

How in the actual fuck... After Percy Jackson... How did they think this would go over well?? Let's make butler black and gender swap root and change the whole plot, everyone will surely love our Disney™ take on this beloved book series with a huge devoted following. Please someone make a Gregor the Overlander movie that isn't terrible so I can still have hope in book adaptations. If you can do Harry Potter and LOTR and make them work what's the excuse for movies like this?? They deserve so much better

Disney, I swear to all the is holy, if you screw up this movie... If this is another movie where you take the characters from an amazing series and then fuck it to high heaven... I can tell you right now there's gonna be fans across the world screaming for your blood. And we will have it. We have been waiting for a movie adaption of this for years. Making due with fan made trailers, headananon actors, and 'what-ifs'. Now that there is an actual movie for it in production and there's a real trailer, I can honestly tell you the fan made ones looked more promising. If you fuck this one up beyond belief, there WILL be hell pay.

I was pretty excited about this until I saw some of the details. Commander Root being female is one of the most egregious changes. A very large and important part of the story is built on Holly's career and her success as the first female LEP officer. Now that Root is obviously the first and is more successful, where is that story element? It changes so many things, and not for the better. Butler being black and not Eurasian... I'm not quite convinced. But that's not the real problem. Butler is repeatedly shown to be fearless and stoic, and in the trailer he's just... not. That look of surprise at 1:10 says it all. If you have any knowledge of Butler from the books, you might as well forget it all now, because I don't think this Butler is going to behave like we expect. At all. I realize, of course, that trailers can be quite deceptive, but I have the awful feeling that this movie is going to be a disaster. We saw it with The Chronicles of Narnia (which started *very* strong, but got worse as it strayed further and further from the books) and Avatar: The Last Airbender (the animated version is *much* better, of course). I can confidently say that I have no desire or intention to see this in theaters - it'll almost certainly be a waste of money.

So you made Butler and Juliet black for no reason going completely opposite to the book descriptions and Juliet's entire character, and you made Root a woman for no reason completely ruining Root and Holly's character arcs, all for the sake of diversity quota. Oh, and you made Artemis a wide-eyed whimsical child instead of a cold calculating criminal, and replaced the sig sauer with a mystical moonbeam bow. I will never understand how screenwriters can get handed a book to adapt, where basically everything is written for them and they just need to cut down the filler to fit a film flow, and they still REPEATEDLY find new ways to fuck it up.

Let's all just see it in a perspective that Disney thought bad film adaptations are a current trend. This movie smells like Spy Kids and Percy Jackson had a child somehow. 😂

If you are looking for a shot-for-shot remake of the visions you saw in your head when you read the book, I have a feeling you will be disappointed. I, for one, am enormously excited to see Disney's interpretation of this story! I am going into it expecting to be entertained, not expecting to see a bunch of people reciting the scenes exactly as Colfer put them in the book. Peace!

still not that great of a teaser trailer, could have done a lot better and it goes through scenes too fast to figure out what is going on. But after later on hearing a little more about what the movie is based on and how this one is not all black and white like some other movies (which I hope they keep it that way), it got me interested to reading the series. So far I finished the first two books of the series and really enjoy them, the 2nd one seems better then the first. Already reserved a copy for the third one and look forward reading it! Very neat exciting series and such, I highly suggest everyone to read the series or at least the first book or two.

They changed so much things. The books were so entertaining... and now... I thought I would be amazed. I was sooooo excited! I kinda cannot wait! But the teaser, for me, is a flop. I’ve waited since i was 8 or 9 years old to have a Artemis Fowl movie because I loved the books so much! They did the same as A Wrinkle In Time, they changed the details in the books and all that shit, and it flopped. 86M$ in the trash. 6 words, 1 sentence : The teaser was disappoiting for me.

This Artemis Fowl movie, the first movie ever made of the Artemis Fowl franchise, looks awful. The trailer is literally 1:37 long, and right until 1:02, the trailer seems like exactly what I would hope for: It shows key settings from the book, even later books, Haven City is gloomy and realistic, and the creepy voice over is exactly how the drunken fairy should sound. Then we get to 1:02. This shot is of Hong Chau as a fairy who can rejuvenate at will... um... what? What's going on here.? Is this the fairy they steal instead of Holly Short, to make Artemis Fowl seem more likeable? The next problem is at 1:04. Artemis Fowl in this shot looks too young. WAY too young. In fact, when my six year-old sister saw him, she said, "Oh, he's so CUTE!" He looks like a nice nine year-old. Asa Butterfield would've been so much better, but he's too old now! At 1:10, this is perhaps the biggest mistake yet: Artemis Fowl and Butler look... scared. THEY NEVER SHOW EMOTIONS. Part of what makes the books cool is the calm, collected coolness of Artemis Fowl and Butler. Yet here, he TAKES OFF HIS GLASSES!!! DUDE!!!! THE FAIRY COULD MESMER HIM!!! At 1:11, it shows a bunch of LEPrecon ships flying over the ocean. Okay, okay, that could happen. At 1:12, it shows Foaly, looking more like Samuel L. Jackson in Unbreakable. Also at 1:12, it shows Artemis Fowl HOLDING A GUN!!! Artemis Fowl does not use weapons. Such behavior is beneath him and left to Butler. Even worse, the background is set during the day, so it's not in the one night that the Fowl Estate is in a time loop. At 1:13, it shows a book accurate shot of glass and tables flying. This should be from the opening scene of the book where a troll attacks a diner in Italy, I think. At 1:14, it shows Butler using a fairy bow. It is a fairy bow because it does not look like a regular human bow. Butler uses a sig sauer. What the heck is this bow doing? At 1:16, it shows Commander Root, a woman in this version, surrounded by a bunch of LEPrecon soldiers, and then disables all of them with some blue blast. I don't remember that EVER happening in the books. At 1:17, it shows a tan (Not good) Artemis Fowl walking out of the ruins of his house (Good) with a swagger (Not good). One of my favorite USvid comments says, "This kid looks like he swaggered right off of Spy Kids." That is so accurate. And then, at 1:22, they don't even use existing Fairy script! For no reason! Also, this cast... I thought Nonso Anozie as Butler would be pretty sick. Instead, we get Nonso Anozie showing emotion, wearing a AWFUL wig, and having... cataracts? Judi Dench is pretty cool. That being said, she should not be Commander Root. Part of Holly Short's story arc is literally being the first female officer in LEPrecon. If Commander Root is a female, Holly's entire motivation is destroyed. Ferdia Shaw, at some points in the trailer, looked like a cute nine year-old, an annoying middle schooler, and then, also looks like a tan Spy Kid. NO. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO! Artemis Fowl is a pale, feeble, skinny 12 year-old. Oh, it also has Josh Gad. Josh Gad is pretty cool. Also, it looks like Disney is genericizing it's characters, to make them appeal to the audiences, putting in more fantasy action, to appeal to the audiences, and adding a female character, to appeal to the audiences. But that's not what the audiences want. Audiences liked the book because of it's different, unique, and extremely not generic plot. But Disney thinks that we really want a generic Artemis Fowl movie. We don't. If the book appealed to the audience enough to become a major motion picture, than why is the next "Logical" step for Disney to make it generic, trash the Artemis Fowl legacy, and probably lose money? Because that's what they think we want? The trailer has more dislikes than the Wrinkle In Time and Nutcracker trailers, 7k and 4.8k respectively. Artemis Fowl has 16k dislikes. That's nearly 4k more dislikes than those two combined! And they're all of the same ilk as Percy Jackson- sloppy adaptations that made unnecessary changes, transform the respected names into jokes, rely too heavily on special effects, and LOSE MONEY. I just don't want to see that happen to Artemis Fowl.

To people complaining that it's different from the book, you still have the books to read. We could watch the movie and compare the two. Heather's is one of my favorite movies and my favorite musical.the musical is different from the movie and the book but I love them all despite of that. It's okay to have different versions of a story.

To be honest it’s just Percy Jackson but instead of God’s they have fairies and some spoilt kid who thinks he’s smart and is trying to sound Irish. You have created a monster Disney. And of course Artemis Foul has a rail gun and butler uses a bow. Clingiest thing I have ever seen and I had to keep editing this comment because it got worse and worse.

I'm scared that it's gonna be disappointing, but also excited that we'll get at least one Artemis Fowl movie. Disney always had a pretty good record of making movies that rate at least a B- on a grading scale, not too bad, but not too good, but still somewhat enjoyable if your name isn't Star Wars: The Last Jedi. That movie was an abomination. But putting that aside, I'm interested what this movie will look like. It could be bad, it could be good. Only time will tell

Everything That Worries Me: A Pocket Guide (buckle in) Description: "...hidden race of fairies who may be behind his father’s disappearance." No. Just...no. Why would you say that? There was no need to say that. 0:59 Why are they in a building? They shouldn't be in a building. Alley. Please. 1:00 White instead of green? Please. 1:08 Oh...oh why? Her magic is gone. She's an alcoholic. She trades sacred secrets for her powers back. Unless she's already been given those, in which case two more problems. One, I will get to in the next entry. Two, "1000 years of alcohol leaving the body is by no means a pretty sight." Remember that line, Disney? 1:10 Why is Butler black. I mean, you could've made almost anyone black. Why did it have to be the guy specifically described as Eurasian? Minor, but people need to realized that over decades, people get attached to their idea of character appearence. Moving on. 1:10 (number 2) Why are they freaked out? Artemis is expecting this because he planned the whole thing, and he never betrays any emotion unless in the most dire of circumstances. Butler is a cold, calculating, stoic and trained professional who should be assessing the situation and planning to remove possible threats, so why is he backing up with an awed face like he just gazed upon the face of God? Totally out of character for both of them. 1:13 Why is Artemis Fowl, genius 12 year old criminal mastermind, holding a gun, when he couldn't hit the side of an elephant with one? Why does he need to, when Butler should be at his side (unless its the troll scene, in which case he should be sitting, transfixed by the moniters of the security room)? 1:14 Why does Butler have a bow made of starlight and water? It doesn't exist in fairy or human technology. Why does he have that, and no Sig Sauer? 1:15 When I first saw the scene with Judi Dench, I thought they had somehow shoehorned in Commander Vinyaya into the story, even though she never appears in the book, and made her blast away the LEP in the time field for some reason. I now realize I was being optimistic, but I couldn't conceive in my wildest dreams that they made Commander Root female. Not because it should have been easy to find a military and gruff yet likeable authority figure to cast. Not because it completely undermines the motivation behind Captain Short's military actions as the FIRST FEMALE RECON MEMBER. But because it was such an insanely needless move that it didn't even enter the realm of possibility in my mind. Like...what benefits even come from that? Anyway. Next. 1:16 You'll notice there's about one of these problems every second. This is the last one however, and it's relatively minor. I just want to know why he's walking like that. I mean, he's not a slow motion action man walking away from an explosion. He shouldn't need to overtly project confidence, he should all but radiate it. And who decided that was a good final take? "Yeah, throw your arms more comically forward. And take big exaggerated steps. Make sure to swing your whole body left to right. Aaaand....cut!" Alright, that's it. This comment is mostly just for my ranting pleasure. Sorry.
