It does seem like a bit of an over reaction . Of all the stuff they put in teen and YA books to complain about this is nothing.

At least Let the Right One In was honest about the squick of vampire 'romance'. :roll:

That too. Not that it's a kid's book by any stretch of the imagination.

Anyway, back on track. Artemis Fowl as a film: could it work?

It'll inject a bit of cash and a lot of acting experience into Ireland either way :D

Oh, sure, it'll work. Lots of action-movie incidents, magical beings, a kid as protagonist, a little tear-jerker motivation that doesn't take much screen time... it'll definitely work as a movie.

That's theory. We're talking practise. Like how much Disney will screw it over. If we're lucky, not much.

Does he have an ugly-cute small animal companion to make wisecracks? If not, they'll add one. Aside from that, though, it's right down their alley already. All they have to do is figure out what part the fans really like and change that. On the other hand, who knows, they might not change much at all.

Goodness, lots of pessimism and drama over this!

Anyway! We grabbed the audio book for the first one and have listened to almost all of it so far on this trip. We love it! I could easily see this being a great movie. Don't think they'd need to change anything, but any company that makes a movie out of a book usually changes/adds/omits something. That shouldn't surprise any of us at this point. The idea that a movie can brainwash you... well... that's a bit out there I think.

I've been hoping for a movie of this since I first read it years ago! I just hope hope hope that the fairy designs are good and not too cutesy or weird, I wasn't overly fond of the designs in the graphic novel so hopefully they might go with something different
