WATCH: ‘Artemis Fowl’ Author ‘Cautiously’ Optimistic Regarding Recent Film News

It’s been a few years since it was first officially announced that Disney and Harvey Weinstein announced they were working on a film adaptation of the Artemis Fowl series of young adult novels by author Eoin Colfer. Not much has been heard of the project since, but recent reports (as per Variety for example) have seen Kenneth Branagh attached to direct the film with Conor McPherson in talks to adapt the book for the screen.

Colfer took to YouTube earlier today to express his thoughts on the latest developments, noting that while he is pleased with news that the movie is moving forward, he cautions that the film has been down that development road before.

REPORT: ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Sequel, ‘Puppy Papers’ Series in Development at Disney

Earlier today, The Animation Guild Blog, representing the Local 839 IATSE union, provided a list of projects currently in the works at various studios in the Southern California area. Among the list are a few of interest when it comes to Disney television and feature animation.

Among the several already-known projects for Disney Television are two new entries: ‘Unannounced fairy tale’ and ‘Puppy Papers.’ An extensive Google search for the latter provided very little information on the new series, other than it’s being developed by Rough Draft Studios for Disney. All we could find were professional references for storyboard artist Aimee Major Steinberger and animation sheet timer David Lyman.
