Disney has released some new character posters for the new Australian Original series, “The Artful Dodger”, which explores the adult double life of Charles Dickens’ famous prince of thieves, Jack Dawkins, aka The Artful Dodger, whose fast pickpocketing fingers have turned into the skilled hands of a surgeon.
Set in 1850s Australia, in the lively colony of Port Victory, Dodger’s past returns to haunt him with the arrival of Fagin, luring him back into a world of crime. A greater threat – to Dodger’s heart – is Lady Belle, the Governor’s daughter, determined to become the colony’s first female surgeon.
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.
Here’s a look at the new character posters:
The eight episode series stars Thomas Brodie-Sangster, as Jack Dawkins aka The Artful Dodger; David Thewlis as Fagin; and Maia Mitchell as Lady Belle Fox. An all-star Australian lineup of talent completes the cast, featuring Damon Herriman, Tim Minchin, Miranda Tapsell, Susie Porter, Damien Garvey, Kym Gyngell, Vivienne Awosoga and New Zealand talent Albert Latailakepa and more.
