Twentieth Century Fox has announced Arthur and the Invisibles 2 & 3: The New Minimoy Adventures for Blu-ray release on March 22. In these two part-live action, part-animated films, directed by Luc Besson, Freddie Highmore returns to the role he played in the 2006 Arthur and the Invisibles (Arthur et les Minimoys).
According to the press release, this two-movie set will be available exclusively at Wal-Mart, but strangely Amazon also has it up for preorder.
I had been waiting for them to make the sequel to this movie for awhile...Didn't realize they had made two more movies already! I'll still pick these up on release day but hopefully they do put the first one on Blu Ray soon...
I wouldn't go about throwing away that French release in favour of a US one; those which have English as an alternative language have the full English version of the film with about 10 minutes of material considered, admittedly quite understandably, objectionable for American and British family audiences (though common for French, Belgian and Japanese etc. comics popular with the 10–12ish readership from what I've read of them).
