Storyline

Arthur is a spirited ten-year old whose parents are away looking for work, whose eccentric grandfather has been missing for several years, and who lives with his grandmother in a country house that, in two days, will be repossessed, torn down, and turned into a block of flats unless Arthur's grandfather returns to sign some papers and pay off the family debt. Arthur discovers that the key to success lies in his own descent into the land of the Minimoys, creatures no larger than a tooth, whom his grandfather helped relocate to their garden. Somewhere among them is hidden a pile of rubies, too. Can Arthur be of stout heart and save the day? Romance beckons as well, and a villain lurks. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The sacred sword that no one (not even Princess Selenia) can pull out of the stone (she implies that only the chosen one can pull it out) but Arthur is able to pull out easily is an homage to King Arthur and the legend of the Sword in the Stone. King Arthur (who the main character of this movie shares a name with) becomes king when he is able to pull a sword from the stone it was stuck in when no one else could. See more »

Goofs

When Granny hangs up the lite lamp on the porch, she is unable to reach as its too high. Then the next scene, and another later, she is able to reach it. See more »

Crazy Credits

The credits feature the characters walking by the names of their voice actors and sometimes pausing briefly to wave. The human characters (Arthur's grandmother, parents,etc.) are in Minimoy form. Luc Besson is also seen in Minimoy form. See more »

not half bad
19 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I hesitated to watch this after hearing some negative revues, but when I finally saw it with my 6 year old daughter, we were both pleasantly surprised. Just goes to show that you shouldn't take someone else's word for something like a movie in most cases. Anyway it was a great movie, fun for my little girl, she especially liked the fairy princess and all of the cute little creatures. I thought that it was beautifully done and I liked the whole Indiana Jones meets honey I shrunk the kids feel to it. I thought that Snoop was hilarious in the movie with his bug club or whatever you want to call it. Well worth watching especially if you have a little girl who loves fairies, and you don't want to get stuck watching something like Barbie and the 12 dancing princesses. (don't laugh it could happen to you)
