Disney+ Unveils Teaser Trailer and Key Art for Australian Original Series “The Artful Dodger”

Disney+ has released the key art and teaser trailer for its upcoming Australian Original series, “The Artful Dodger,” set to premiere exclusively on the platform in Australia on November 29.

“The Artful Dodger” delves into the adult double life of Jack Dawkins, Charles Dickens’ famed prince of thieves known as The Artful Dodger. Dawkins’ nimble pickpocketing skills have transformed into the adept hands of a surgeon. The series unfolds in 1850s Australia, within the vibrant colony of Port Victory, as Dodger’s past returns with the arrival of Fagin, tempting him back into a life of crime. A more significant threat, both to Dodger’s way of life and heart, emerges in the form of Lady Belle, the Governor’s daughter, who is determined to break gender norms and become the colony’s first female surgeon.

From daring heists to life-and-death surgeries, the series navigates the intricate intersection of the criminal underworld with the middle class and gentry. “The Artful Dodger” is a tale of reinvention, betrayal, redemption, and love, with a unique twist.

The ensemble includes Damon Herriman, Tim Minchin, Miranda Tapsell, Susie Porter, Damien Garvey, Kym Gyngell, Vivienne Awosoga, Albert Latailakepa from New Zealand, and more.

The series’ producing team is rounded out by James McNamara (Co-Creator, Co-Executive Producer, and Writer), Andrew Knight (Co-Executive Producer and Writer), Jeffrey Walker (Co-Executive Producer and Director), and Ross Allsop (Producer).
