This animation movie was made around the same time the French director Luc Besson directed the music video for Love Profusion. He asked Madonna to voice the character of Princess Selenia.
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 (Invisibles), a tiny people living in harmony with nature.
