      Is it possible not to fall in love in children's animation

      Cartoons have always embodied artistic creative images and plots, which are incomparable to real-life movies. From the lively scene of a bee's flight from a Lilliputian country collecting dew and fresh fruit to a real family house, the discovery of a little boy It turned out to be the little boy in "August Love" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", alas, why do I feel that I can't feel the liveliness of a little boy here, his expression is too serious and steady, and the cartoon's The...

      I think it's a great movie

      I don't understand why so many people criticize Arthur.
      Do you think that Luc Besson should make the film more complicated, with dramatic humanistic elements, to complicate the world, otherwise it will be monotonous?

      What a beautiful fairy tale, even though it is a simple and plain story, what an interesting narration.
      It's like a simple little fairy tale I heard when I was a child.

      Isn't the world supposed to be like this? Most of us imagined when we were kids...

      Like index: ★★★

      Compared with the first part, the viewing ability and imagination are better, but what really deserves extra points is that the villain at the end turns into a "human", which finally makes the conspiracy creative. Instead, Arthur and the princess are a man and a woman. The protagonist is relatively lackluster, and deliberately satisfying children's adult dreams can only make the story younger. I have always wondered why the so-called fairy tales and magic will definitely be related to feudal...

      young male protagonist

      Three years later, this magical mini-world has continued again, and with good news, there will be a third installment.

      In the second part, the world has become more magical and interesting, and many unimaginable things have been revealed, but the structure of the story is still a little different, no wonder the IMDB rating is as low as 4.9, I always think Lucbe Song is a good storyteller, but why hasn't the structure of these two cartoons been very reasonable?

      The heroine...

      Screenplay quality

      Arthur and His Mini Kingdom 2 is a movie I've been wanting to watch for a long time. I watched the English dialogue version on TV a few days ago. To be honest, I was very disappointed after watching it. It couldn't be worse than the first movie. The whole plot of the story is too compact. The main animation is eager to tell you something, but it is a mess. When I was in school, the teacher mentioned that when he was talking about animation and movie scripts, a good story script should have...

      Very disappointing, overemphasizing those techniques, not very good techniques, resulting in a messy animation, and it is not happy-ending. ....

    Creative background

    The film is more whimsical in its action-making and more poetic in its narrative. For example, the flashbacks of the movie let the audience know the past experience of Princess Selena, which allows the audience to walk into the inner world of the little princess and feel the rhythm of her life. In the first film, audiences have been looking at the character through Arthur's eyes, and little is known about her. This time, you can really...

    Shooting process

    The film crew arrives at the rebuilt Connecticut village in Normandy. In order to meet the script requirements, the crew expanded it to 40 square kilometers. Luc Besson and his chief set designer Hugo Tisandia recreated social life throughout the countryside: churches, shops, supermarkets, garages, hardware stores, police stations, cinemas and fountains. These new elements are not in the first, they build a complete village. One of the...

    Director Luc Besson is proud of a pioneering work known as the "vine-like technique", which combines three techniques: footage shot on location and unprocessed footage of Alfred Thomas Highmore as a backdrop. Together, simple stunts like using models to get a close-up of when the giant vines wrap around Arthur, and pure 3D techniques to make the scene look as real as possible. Directing these sequences proved to be quite difficult,...

    Evaluation action

    Following the great success of his first work, Luc Besson brings a sequel to Arthur and his Mini-Kingdom. More action scenes are dizzying, and the combination of live action and 3D animation reaches a near-perfect level. (Review of "Seven Days TV Program") 
    Arthur and the Revenge of Maltazard delivers on its promise. Demon-possessed chases and good-boy suspense unfold in this sequel, with the young hero on a mission to return to the...
