Over the past few months, we’ve been offering our readers a number of in-depth video interviews with filmmakers and performers via our Collider Connected series, and we have another exciting announcement to make. Today at 12:15pm ET/9:15am PT Kenneth Branagh will be joining us for a live episode of Collider Connected that you can watch here on Collider and on our YouTube channel!
We’re hoping to discuss highlights from his career including writing, directing and starring in numerous Shakespeare adaptations, directing Thor almost ten years ago, playing Hercule Poirot in Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile, his work on stage in the West End, as well as directing the upcoming fantastical adventure Artemis Fowl that starts streaming on Disney+ June 12th.
“Artemis Fowl is a true original. In challenging times, a twelve year old criminal mastermind is one heck of a travelling companion. Smart, funny, and cool as mustard, he’ll take you to new worlds, meet unforgettable characters, and mix magic with mayhem. His own family is everything to him, and (although he’d never admit it), he’d be as proud as I am that families around the world will now be able to enjoy his first amazing screen adventures together, on Disney +.”
Artemis Fowl is based on the best-selling young adult book by Eoin Colfer and stars newcomer Ferdia Shaw in the title role alongside Lara McDonnell, Josh Gad, Tamara Smart, Nonso Anozie, Josh McGuire, Nikesh Patel, Adrian Scarborough, Colin Farrell and Judi Dench.
Again, you can watch the interview live today at 12:15pm ET/9:15am on Collider’s YouTube channel and right here on Collider.com.
