Josh Gad Shares A Look At His Makeup Test For Artemis Fowl
As we previously reported here at MickeyBlog, Disney has made the decision that rather than waiting for theaters across the company to reopen, Artemis Fowl will make its debut on Disney+ with a premiere date of June 12th.
“Artemis Fowl” is based on the book by Eoin Colfer. It follows 12-year old genius Artemis Fowl as he tries to find his father who has disappeared. With the help of his loyal protector Butler, Artemis sets out to find him- uncovering an ancient underground civilization in the process that is filled with fairies. Believing that his father’s disappearance is connected with the fairy realm he plots to get to the bottom of his father’s disappearance going toe to toe with these all-powerful sprites!
To celebrate the film’s upcoming release, Josh Gad has taken to social media to give fans a look at what his character Mulch Diggums will look like. Check it out!

First makeup test for #ArtemisFowl. We eventually decided to lose Mulch’s marble green eyes and settle for my simple mundane brown eyes. These contact lenses were like putting coffee mug coasters into my eye sockets. Catch #ArtemisFowl exclusively on #DisneyPlus on June 12!
As you can see from the caption above, the decision was made to get rid of Mulch’s green eyes but other than that, this photo gives us an idea of what we can Mulch- a kleptomaniac dwarf to look like.
But this isn’t the only glimpse of Gad’s character we’ve seen over the last few weeks. We also shared a video of Gad, in full Mulch make-up giving us a bit of an 80s flashdance dance. It’s hilarious!
I was never going to share this, but something tells me the world needs it now more than ever. I hope it brings you peace. pic.twitter.com/CWnwVPvXmO
