Disney+: Artful Dodger in Australia – cast details

Thomas Brodie-Sangster, David Thewlis and Maia Mitchell will star in the forthcoming Disney+ Series shot in New South Wales.

A new Australian series based on Charles Dicken’s novel Oliver Twist is coming to Disney+. Set in 1850s Australia, The Artful Dodger is the story of the famous prince of thieves, but with a twist.

Across eight episodes, the scripted series explores the adult double life of Dodger – now a surgeon, but who can’t shake his predilection for crime. From high-octane heists to life-and-death surgeries, glittering parties to colourful streets, this series is described as a ‘rock’n’roll tale with an Aussie connection’.
