Ten-year-old Arthur, in a bid to save his grandfather's house from being demolished, goes looking for some much-fabled hidden treasure in the land of the Minimoys, tiny people living in harmony with nature.
The group of people referred to in the movie title,"The Invisibles", actually refer to a secret miniscule world of Minimoys that live beneath the garden of Arthur's grandfather, and not to members of the secret organization published by DC Comics in a series of comics from 1994 to 2000, called "The Invisibles".
This is Archibald Suchot, a treasure hunter, explorer, and engineer. He spent 10 years in Africa building every type of useful thing. Oh, by the way, it's in the heart of Africa that our story begins.
Narrator: Well, this really isn't Africa, it's Connecticut...
(at around 4 mins) Arthur constructs an irrigation system using split bamboo and plastic "Bendy Straws". In the 1960s, drinking straws were made of waxed paper.
At the beginning of the end credits, the main actors, actresses, and director come out on screen to take their final bows. If they did a voice in the film, they are presented as the character they voiced in the film. If their role was strictly live action, they are presented as a Minimoy version of their character.
Weinstein's 94 minute USA/UK version is renamed "Arthur and the Invisibles" and is heavily cut and rearranged from the original 103 minute French/English language version named "Arthur et les Minimoys":
