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 really have no desire to see Mulch Diggums doing his thing. It's alright to read about, but I really believe this part should be done as tastefully as possible when in film.


I completely agree with this. That would just make the film really...awkward... I don't think it would make it an R rated film (if that's what you were saying), but it would just be unpleasant.

Opal cannot be tame - she has to look like a devious, horribly hard and beautiful person. Maybe get Keira for her . . .someone who thinks she's princess of the world.

I've never actually looked up any things that list who people want to play the characters (probably because they would just really irritate me), but I agree with what you said about Opal needing to have a dark-beauty about her. I can kind of see Kiera pulling that off, but she's need black hair (right?). ha, that'd be kind of awesome though, cause if she had black hair, you wouldn't really picture her as Elizabeth.

Keira could be Opal. Let Keira be Opal so Keira is not Holly!!

Did you read somewhere that Kiera Knightly is rumored to play her or something...? Because you seem to be really freaking out about her...

Yes. I freak out easily when it comes to casting particular people for particular roles, even if the threat is only a rumor. Actually, I saw Keira playing Holly in a fanmade trailor on this site . . . it kind of freaked me out, and then on the Eoin Colfer Official Website I found many people were advocating her for the role. So yes, I am freaked. Even though I seriously doubt she will play, it is the thought that gets me upset.

Oh well, yeah, I guess that gives you credibility to freak out. But I seriously doubt that EC would let that happen. (of course, she isn't really that old I guess...NO!
He better just want unknowns, seriously, unknowns!!

Now you're freaking me out.
The age difference between the two of them can not be drastic!

I don't want the Lower Elements to be a completely underwhelming place. Remember that movie "Atlantis: The Lost Empire" with the really unique vision of Atlantis? That kind of inspired art direction is necessary to express the Lower Elements. Not like the exact style, obviously, but it just needs to be as distinct and immersive. It would be annoying to see the movie after such a long wait and have the fairy homeland be just a gaping dirt cave. I would like it to be a living, breathing, colorful (although not too much so) place with unfathomable beauty. At least, that's how I imagine it in my head. :P

Yeah, I agree, the sets should be really good. I think they generally are...actually, I take that back...
Some directors get them really good, so I think it's all a matter of who's in charge.

Hey! This is my first post! (yay!) So what i wouldn't like to see in the video is...
1. the first and second book combined. :crying:
2. *no offense to any dwarves out there but...* no dwarves or children playing the faries.

i just have to give why i think they want to combine the two books.
As the average AF fan- NOOOO!!! DONT COMBINE THE BOOKS!!!!! *dies* :scared:
As the average hollywood producer- it would cost more to make 2 movies. its not like harry potter where we all GREW UP reading them. Technically, in my grade, 3 ppl, other than me, have read the AF books :(, and 1/3 didn't like the first book and QUIT.

So, even though we dont want producers to combine the movies, they probibly will.

P.S. Can we all agree no actor of this generation is WORTHY of playing artemis. :thumbsdown:

(Hey AFFan. The quote in blue in your signature is actually from Artemis Fowl III, or "The Eternity Code." Not Artemis Fowl II. Just trying to look out for you. :P And welcome to the forums! I just got here a few days ago as well and it's been a really fun place so far.)

Actually, I was saying Artemis Fowl THE SECOND, not AF: book 2, but thanks for the thought! :blush:

And something else: C'mon everyone! Let's pretend!!!!! *woosh,woosh,woosh*

The credits are scrolling we see:
Artemis Fowl II - Jacob Kogan (or Skander Keynes. Who-Hoo!!!)
Then we hear: Oh, oh, oh, it's MAGIC! You know. Never believe it's not so...

If the song for the credits Selena Gomez's "Magic", I will DIE. Right there in the isle, come back to life, then sue DISNEY|HYPERION for killing me!!! :cursing:

I do NOT want to see Artemis Fowl's character don't do what I imagined him to be, and the book's point of view is totally ruined in the movie, just like "Sundays At Tiffany's" by James Patterson

I don't want any music that isn't instrumental. For one thing, it would really go against Artemis Fowl II (picture him watching a movie adaptation of his life with pop music), but it would also be far too stereotypical-teenage-flickish. I want the movie to appeal to adults as well as teenagers.
I don't want Holly to be played by a total jaw-dropping gorgeous and well-known actress. Holly would be a great jumpstart for some unknown actor, and let's face it, Hollywood has far too many gorgeous people already!
Artemis absolutely can't be cheerful at any time in the film, or melodramatic. We need someone who can seriously say, "I don't like lollipops" without botching it.

A lot of people want Emma Watson to play Holly, but she totally doesn't fit the description in my opinion! Also, Art HAS to have deep blue eyes, it's a key part in the Seventh Dwarf. And Butler cannot have hair! He...just can't!

I totally agree with you on all counts. Emma Watson playing Holly would be... a criminal act!
