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.
Director Luc Besson said that this would be his last movie as a director, but later changed his mind.
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 33 mins) Selenia is surprised Arthur knows her name when they first meet, but her father just named her to the whole audience. This is because when Arthur is being told the story of the Minimoy's by his grandmother, Daisy tells Arthur her name when he asks about it.
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.
The theatrical release has the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer opening and closing logos, but on home video releases, all MGM references are removed.
