"Arthur and the Invisibles" was the first part of a trilogy by Luc Besson. It was released back in 2006 and went on to earn only $15 million in the US. While it was considered a major failure by many, the movie earned close to $100 million in foreign territories.
Besson complained that the US version was tampered with and still defended his movie. He then went on to shoot "Arthur and the Revenge of Maltazard" and "Arthur and the Two Worlds War" back-to-back. He even had star Freddie Highmore do the voice-overs early, just in case his young voice changes later on.
Now, we have an international trailer for the sequel, "Revenge of Maltazard," and you can check it out below. At this point, the second installment will likely appear in non-US theaters in 2009 and the third film in 2010.
The US cut was a mess. The main points of the story were cut. Selenia needed a husband and a new king in two days... So, Arthur ends kissing and marrying the princes, and becames the future king..
So people do not understand why he is so ansious to meet his queen again... which is the basis for the second film...
