What do you NOT want to see in the movie?

The Artemis Fowl Movie is coming... On the 26th July 2013, Disney, in association with Harvey Weinstein, announced that a movie covering the events of the first two books was finally in the works!

I don't think PJ can get a sequel. First of all because of its fail, then its plot. They killed Luke, and he's a very important character in the next books.

I don't want that to happen here with AF.

Yeah I don't want them to just stop after one movie, like they do with all these other things (Eragon, and others) (not that I've read Eragon yet) Especially because the main stuff that happens in the series is later on, the whole development of Artemis's character, turning good. His relationship with Holly and with the fairies in general.


Also, Please! DO NOT Make it 3-D!
Oh my gosh! I was just reading Entertainment Weekly yesterday and they are making everything 3-D! They were even talking about re-making old movies into 3-D like Titanic, Star Wars, and LOTR. (I think SW and LOTR are hesitating though) But seriously, what the heck?!?! :cursing: Why do they feel the need to make everything in 3-D now?
Please, do not make AF in 3-D!

WHAT?! Star Wars?! No! You do not touch the classics! If they decide to make 7-9, then they can do it in 3-D, but you do not touch 1-6!

...Sorry...I'm a hard-core SW fan... :blush:

Did they kill Luke?...I'm fairly sure he just got beaten up.

I still think AF should go new places, maybe littler characters are more important, you see new sides of characters extrapolated from the original book characters, etc.
Thankyou for my avvie, Rain! I luv it!!! :laughing:

If you finish the movie, then you'd see the whole camp holding a funeral for Luke, with his body in the shroud, and all.

Percy and Annabeth also did something that wasn't in the book!

I didn;t like Percy Jackson the movie. I'm a stickler for the books being, like, identicle o the movies. I was disappointed with all of the weird changes the movie brought on.

The thing that would kill me in AF movie would definately be the casting! Nobody too old, too young, too WELL KNOWN, of the wrong ethnicy, and dear lord, if Hale Barry plays Holly I will boycott! (Brad Pitt and John Travolta showing up would also cause a riot at my local movie theatre. Involving water guns.)

I would hate to:

1. Not see myself in the movie
1. Include a "romance"between Holly and Arty, right off the bat. Stick to the books please.
2. Change up the plotline. Unless they can make it even better, don't turn it around. They're unique.
3. Holly and Artemis to be played by well-known actors. I really want some unknowns to claim the roles, so that way they own the role, and not like "Hey! Rihanna is playing Holly!" *shudders.*
4. Low-budget effects. I'm sorry, but if the effects aren't spectacular, then they should wait 'till their budget is higher.
5. Disney-type dialogue or conflict. The only type of "Disney" I'll allow is POTC, because it's kickass. :D
6. If they combine the 1st and 2nd books.....*commits suicide*

Unfortunately, the already are planing on combining the first two books.

I'm just going to repeat what others have said. What I don't want is:

1) An actor over 14 playing Artemis. It would totally take away from the awesomeness of the character if they did that.

2) An actress over 23 playing Holly.

3) Known actors for Artemis or Holly.I can't think of a single actor I like for either of them.

4) Crappy CGI.

5) Tons of changes. Please, keep it really close to the book!

6) Any romance between Artemis and Holly.

Well, I don't want it to be shot anywhere else than Ireland. Also, I don't want them to make the fairies look childish or comical. It has to be thrilling. I don't want some famous child actor portraying Artemis. It should be someone unknown, but with a vampire smile.
I never tell anyone exactly how clever I am. They would be too scared.

I don't think they will, especially if it's true to the first book. There should be some heavily military-influenced scenes in there.

OMG, I just had a horrific image of one of Micheal Jackson's boys playing Artemis!!!

Great Gods I hope I'm not an oracle prophecizing that casting! :scared:

What? Seriously. I don't remember the funeral in the movie. And they didn't kiss. I haven't read the books, but I saw the movie and they definitely did not kiss. They almost kissed, and then she was like "don't get distracted" and she stole his sword.

Anyway,

I don't want them to make the fairies come up to Artemis' waist, I mean, seriously, there's no way they're that small.

Well said, lotrfan - he's meant to be pretty short when he meets them anyway - although to be fair, he's probably meant to be a bit taller. :laughing:

I'm not that botherede about whether it's shot in Ireland, so long as the actors do a passable Irish accent (well, a bit more than passable).
But Robin Hood was shot in Bulgaria, just because it had the right surroundings. If the Irish surroundings of Fowl Manor are better done in another location, because, for example, there isn't a manor that looks like Fowl Manor on the Irish coast, then they should do it someplace else. So long as it looks as though it's in the right place, I don't mind. Plus, better sets are probably available in the US, to get Haven right.
Thankyou for my avvie, Rain! I luv it!!! :laughing:

Yes. I would think Haven would be a set in Hollywood, while the other scenes would be shot on location or a look-alike location. :D
