THE LITTLE PRINCE FILM {Mark Osborne + Antoine de Saint-Exupery}

A little girl living in a grown-up world, preparing for being ‘successful’ in life. A mum with a plan.

Paper planes that come through the window. A neighbor, The Aviator, will introduce her to an extraordinary world where anything is possible. The world of The Little Prince.

The Little Prince (French: Le Petit Prince) is an upcoming French animated fantasy film directed by Mark Osborne. Irena Brignull wrote the script based on the 1943 novel of the same name by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The film uses stop motion animation for the novel’s story and computer animation for an additional frame narrative. It stars Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Rachel McAdams and Jeff Bridges. Le Petit Prince will debut October 7th, 2015 in France.

The story has been adapted numerous times — including an opera and a ballet — but next year’s animated film might be the most beautiful interpretation yet, and I’m basing that solely on this trailer.
