Take a Look at Judi Dench as Commander Root in ARTEMIS FOWL
Seeing Judi Dench in command is nothing new. She was M in the James Bond films after all. However, not only will she be in command as Commander Root in Artemis Fowl, she’ll have fairy ears while doing it as a gender-swapped character. Kenneth Branagh is directing the film, and he told Entertainment Weekly that the prosthetics weren’t the only things that changed when Dench assumed the role.
Commander Root was a male in the book, but that seems to have been a creative liberty that Branagh has taken with the film. He did talk to Eoin Colfer, the author of Artemis Fowl, about it first though:
Artemis Fowl is set to be in theaters on August 9, 2019.
