Adventure Awaits in Your Own Backyard.
From the creative mind of talented filmmaker Luc Besson (La Femme Nikita, The Fifth Element), comes a larger-than-life family adventure about a boy who, after his grandfather disappears, sets out to save his family home from emerging real estate developers. Arthur learns that he must follow his grandfather's ancient clues to a vast treasure - and unlock the passageway to a spectacular new world filled with mysterious little people, so tiny they are considered invisible, and enlist their help. But once in the magical land, Arthur must join swords with a beautiful princess and a reckless army of defenders to save the land from the evil wizard. It seems like an impossible task, but as he discovers along the way, sometimes the smallest heroes can make the biggest difference.

Using a dazzling new combination of live-action and ground-breaking CGI technology, Arthur and the Invisibles is the story about the true meaning of courage and the endless power of imagination. The film stars Mia Farrow and Freddie Highmore, featuring the voices of Anthony Anderson, Jason Bateman, David Bowie, Nate Corddry, Rob Corddry, Robert De Niro, Emilio Estevez, Jimmy Fallon, Harvey Keitel, Madonna, Chazz Palminteri, Erik Per Sullivan, and Snoop Dogg. Arthur and the Invisibles was written and directed by Luc Besson and is based on the best selling children's book, Arthur and the Invisibles.

Editor's Note
Director Luc Besson (THE FIFTH ELEMENT) tries his hand at a children's film with ARTHUR AND THE INVISIBLES. Based on a book, this adventure follows Arthur (Freddie Highmore) as he journeys in his own backyard to save his home from greedy land developers. When his grandfather disappears, Freddie follows a series of clues that lead him to the land of the Minimoys (aka the Invisibles). Arthur's entrance into their realm takes the film from live-action to computer animation, changing Arthur from a 10-year-old boy into one of the Minimoys. The elf-like people he encounters are so tiny that insects dwarf them. Their warrior princess (voiced by Madonna) is ready to ascend the throne of the tiny kingdom. But first she and Arthur must join forces to outwit the evil Malthazar (voiced by David Bowie), who is intent on destroying the kindhearted race.

ARTHUR AND THE INVISIBLES boasts a cast of talented actors. Mia Farrow plays Arthur's concerned grandmother, which is quite a change from her malevolent nanny in THE OMEN. The trio of musicians-turned-actors (Madonna, Snoop Dogg, and Bowie) are all fun in their vocal roles, and Bowie particularly shines as the villain. Other standouts include Robert De Niro, Jimmy Fallon, Harvey Keitel, and Jason Bateman, while Highmore brings the same wide-eyed wonder to the screen as he did in CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. In fact, ARTHUR AND THE INVISIBLES shares a similar imaginative spirit with the works of Tim Burton and Roald Dahl. Though Besson's previous films have been adults-only fare like LA FEMME NIKITA, he brings a sense of childlike awe to this project.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"The world is visually rich..." 01/12/2007 p.E11

The Observer 7 of 10
"Luc Besson's Arthur and the Invisibles is an unoriginal French children's movie, part computer-animated, part live action, set in Connecticut and a subterranean fairyland, and made on location in Normandy. Freddie Highmore, the likeable British lad from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Finding Neverland, plays a 10-year-old who follows clues laid out by his explorer grandfather that lead to a community of teeny folk, whom he helps, and a cache of rubies that save his family's fortunes. David Bowie, Robert De Niro and Madonna are among those providing the voices. Little children will like it, and possibly understand it better than I did." - Philip French

Variety 6 of 10
"The bucolic wonder buried in Luc Besson's ""Arthur and the Invisibles"" has been snuffed out by this alienating and dislikable animated film. As overproduced and acrid as Besson's ""The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc"" and ""The Fifth Element,"" this adventure tale of a lad who enters a subterranean world haplessly blends live-action and visually repellent computer-animated work...Highmore and Farrow display some sparks of odd-couple interest, but Farrow especially seems out of her element as a grandmother. Voices rarely match up well with specific characters, with the exceptions of Madonna and Bowie, in magnificent form. Having African-Americanthesps Snoop Dogg and Anthony Anderson voice creatures that are basically humanoid monkeys shows poor taste." - Robert Koehler
