Earlier this week, Disney held a special premiere event at Beta Bar in Sydney for the new Australia Original series, “The Artful Dodger”. The event was attended by Tim Minchin, Suzie Porter, Miranda Tapsell, Andrea Demetriades, David Thewlis and Damon Herriman.
Set in 1850s Australia, in the lively colony of Port Victory, Jack Dawkins, aka The ArtfulDodger, is now a surgeon who still has a penchant for crime. When Dodger’s past returns to haunt him with the arrival of Fagin, he is lured back into a world of crime. From heists to life-and-death surgeries, to the harsh realities of the criminal world mingling with the middle ground and gentry, this is a tale of reinvention, betrayal, redemption, and love with a twist.
The event featured some costumes and props from the series on display, plus a Q&A session.
Here are some photos from the event:
