In honor of National Streaming Day, Disney+ has shared new images from Muppets Now and Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe, as well released a new preview for Artemis Fowl.
Based on the best-selling young adult book by Eoin Colfer, Artemis Fowl delivers a big cinema-sized experience for audiences of all ages to experience for the first time on Disney+ starting on Friday, June 12th. From director Kenneth Branagh, it is a fantastical epic adventure, resplendent with beautiful landscapes and spectacular visual effects that will transport viewers to magical new worlds.
Descended from a long line of criminal masterminds, 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl finds himself in a battle of strength and cunning against a powerful, hidden race of fairies who may be behind his father’s disappearance.
Artemis Fowl is a fantastical, spellbinding adventure that follows the journey of 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, a descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, as he desperately tries to save his father who has been kidnapped. In order to pay his ransom, Artemis must infiltrate an ancient, underground civilization — the amazingly advanced world of fairies — and bring the kidnapper the Aculos, the fairies’ most powerful and coveted magical device.
To locate the elusive object, cunning Artemis concocts a dangerous plan—so dangerous that he ultimately finds himself in a perilous war of wits with the all-powerful fairies.
Kenneth Branagh, p.g.a. and Judy Hofflund, p.g.a. produced with Angus More Gordon and Matthew Jenkins serving as executive producers. Conor McPherson and Hamish McColl wrote the screenplay.
Disney+ also announced that the new original series Muppets Now will premiere July 31 on the streaming service. Muppets Now is The Muppets Studio’s first original series for Disney+.
In the six-episode season, Scooter rushes to make his delivery deadlines and upload the brand-new Muppet series for streaming. They are due now, and he’ll need to navigate whatever obstacles, distractions, and complications the rest of the Muppet gang throws at him.
Overflowing with spontaneous lunacy, surprising guest stars and more frogs, pigs, bears (and whatevers) than legally allowed, the Muppets cut loose in Muppets Now with the kind of startling silliness and heartfelt fun that first made them famous.
Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe
The streaming service released the first images from Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe as well. The movie is coming to Disney+ this summer.
In the film, Phineas and Ferb travel across the galaxy to rescue their older sister Candace, who has been abducted by aliens and found utopia in a far-off planet, free of her pesky little brothers.
