Storyline

Arthur did as a boy what only grandpa, a fellow nature buff, did as an adult: pass, as white man, the Bogo tribe's tests of harmony with the natural worlds of trees, minerals and animals. To answer a mysterious call fro help from the Mimimoy people, he enters their world miniaturized. By the time he works out with friends it was a trick, the mastermind has already escaped, ready to strike in our world. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Madonna did not reprise her role, and is recasted by Selena Gomez. There are many rumors speculating her not returning as she has not officially stated why she did not return. One rumor suggest it was because the First film did poorly at the Box Office and met poor reviews so Madonna did not want to be apart of the project. Another suggest that Selena Gomez's name was so similar to the Character that they insisted she take it instead of calling Madonna. The last rumor suggest that it was due to lack of budget to lay for Madonna to reprise her role, and at the time Selena Gomez was the cheapest option. See more »

It's a fun movie(if you watch in french dub audio)
11 January 2011 | by fichindarktowerSee all my reviews

Really enjoyed the first one(the french dubbed one, with all the scenes intact) and enjoyed the second one as well. Fun movie, funny humor(it's not tenacious d funny, I mean come on It's a still a kids movie). Watch in french with English subbs, sounds better and makes a whole lot of sense cause the animated segments are made by french people(They recorded it in the suits, with all their gestures and stuff, and were originally made in french, and you can notice this(in all of the movies) cause they speak really fast, and if you watched french movies ever in your life, you'd know they have a fast tempo. Fun, enjoyable and easy to watch movie, i recommend it to kids as well as older people Enjoy :)
