Arthur and the Revenge of Maltazard (French: Arthur et la Vengeance de Maltazard) is a 2009 English-language French fantasy animated/live-action directed and co-written by Luc Besson. It is based on the third book of the Arthur children's books series by Besson. It is the sequel to Arthur and the Invisibles (2006), and the second installment in the Arthur film series.
Arthur and the Revenge of Maltazard was released theatrically in France on 2 December 2009 by EuropaCorp. The film received mixed reviews from critics in France but was received negatively in the rest of the world. Like its predecessor's, it was a box-office success in France but it under-performed internationally, and was released as a direct-to-video in the United States. As a result, the film generated huge losses for EuropaCorp.A sequel, titled Arthur 3: The War of the Two Worlds and shot back-to-back, was released in 2010 in France.
