Trivia / Artemis Fowl

  • Development Hell: The live action film. Plans for the film were announced as early as 2001, but nothing came of them until 2013 when the film rights passed to Disney. The film release was announced in 2017 to be scheduled for August 2019.
  • Role-Ending Misdemeanor: After news of his sexual allegations were reported in October 2017, Harvey Weinstein was fired from The Weinstein Company and removed as producer for the upcoming live-action film.
  • Technology Marches On: A fair amount of Fairy technology and equipment considered superior to the human variety at the start of the series by either the characters or the author have become decidedly less so as the years have gone by. Notable examples include wrist GPS, wafer-thin laptop computers and the iris-cam. Several Future Soldier Programs currently in development will almost certainly make the original LEP Recon jumpsuit the next casualty.
  • What Could Have Been: Word of God is that Minerva was meant to appear more after her debut, but she ultimately didn't.
