Disney released its newest movie Artemis Fowl on Disney Plus Friday. The newest Disney movie combines adventure and fantasy for a perfect family movie night.
I’ve put together a list of fun things you can do during your family time including activity sheets and an easy to make coconut lime popsicle recipe.
Where Can I Watch Artemis Fowl?
After releasing the movie trailer in November 2018, Disney scheduled the release first to August 2019, then May 2020. With theaters closing to deal with the global pandemic, the long-awaited movie was released straight to Disney+ on June 12, 2020.
Quick Movie Review
Although I’ve read several less than glowing reviews, my family found the movie entertaining. The Disney Plus movie was our first experience with the Artemis Fowl series. Coming from fresh eyes, the storyline and suspenseful situations were entertaining. And the visuals were gorgeous.
I found myself wondering if the Fowl Manor is on Air B&B, because I could spend the whole summer on that beach during the day and devouring that huge library at night.

Spotting hidden Mickeys is a fun part of watching Disney movies. To help you get started, here’s one to watch for in Artemis Fowl on Disney Plus.
When the fairy, Holly Short, is using the Aculos and the camera starts spinning, make sure you catch the hidden Mickey that appears as the magical device begins to glow!
Artemis Fowl Books on Amazon
Summer is a great time to encourage reading! If this movie sparked interest, the Artemis Fowl series includes eight books your kids will love. All 8 books follow Artemis Fowl, a 12 year old criminal mastermind, and his friends as they work to defeat the underground world of fairies and protect the world.
Amazon has the book with the newly redesigned covers available for under $8 each, or on Kindle for only $.99!
Artemis Fowl Time Freeze Popsicles
In the movie, the time freeze allowed the gnomes, fairies, and other underground residents to visit the human world. It only makes sense to make a delicious and healthy lime coconut popsicle to enjoy with the movie.
- 1 1/2 Avocado, peeled & pitted
- 3 cups of coconut milk
- ⅔ cup Sugar
- ¼ tsp Salt
- ¼ cup Cornstarch
- 3 Egg yolks
- 2 tsp. Vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp Lime juice
- In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, salt, and cornstarch.
- Gradually whisk in coconut milk, mixing until ingredients are dissolved.
- Whisk in egg yolks.
- Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly until you see it barely begin to bubble.
- Reduce heat to low and continue to whisk and cook for 1 minute until thickened a little.
- Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.
- In a food processor or blender, puree the avocado and lime juice together.
- Pour the coconut mixture into processor or blender and puree until completely combined and smooth. Taste and add sweetener if needed.
- Divide the mixture among popsicle molds.
- Chill in the refrigerator for one hour, then insert the popsicle sticks.
