Arthur and the Invisibles (Minimoys)

A new CGI movie that caught my eye being released by the Weinstein company and MGM in the U.S. written and directed by Frenchman Luc Benson who also did the books. In France it is called Aruthur et les Minimoys and It will be called Aruthur and the Invisibles when released in the U.S. in 2007. Freddy Highmore (sporting a more contemporary hairdo than in his last two films) plays a kid who turns into a CGI elf/nymph-sort of creature and is guided by a princess warrior sadly played by Madonna (Kiera Knightly was out?). I guess Madonna is doing it because Benson directed one of her videos. Benson is responsible for one of my favorite films... The Fifth Element. The film seems to be a mix of the once aired "B.R.A.T.S. of the Lost Nebula" with Antz and James and the Giant Peach.
