Disney cast Ferdia Shaw as Artemis Fowl!

The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Disney’s Artemis Fowl has finally found its lead as Ferdia Shaw is set to play the teenage criminal mastermind. Shaw, who will make his big-screen debut in the Kenneth Branagh-helmed adaptation, was cast as the lead after an extensive search, which included more than 1,200 possible candidates.

The movie was adapted for the screen by playwright Conor McPherson from Eoin Colfer’s best-selling book series, which follows the intelligent Artemis as he attempts to uncover a hidden race of fairies who may be behind his father’s disappearance.

Disney on Wednesday also announced that Josh Gad, who starred in the studio’s live-action Beauty and the Beast, will be joining the cast as Mulch Diggums, a kleptomaniacal dwarf who works for the fairies.

Elf hero Captain Holly Short will be played by Lara McDonnell (The Delinquent Season), whilst Nonso Anozie (Cinderella) will play Artemis’ bodyguard, Butler. It was previously reported that Judi Dench will star in the fantasy adventure, playing Commander Root, the steely leader of the fairy police force.
