Movie critic Bruce Miller says “Artemis Fowl,” which premieres on Disney Plus on June 12, is based on a series of books by Eoin Colfer, which seems set up similar to “Harry Potter.” The action film tosses in so many real and imagined characters, it’ll be hard to figure out who’s one of the Mud People and who’s among the Gnommish. Clearly, Colfer was looking for his way into the ever-expanding market of bold, new worlds.
