After releasing a foreign language sneak peek last year, On Entertainment has debuted the first English-language trailer for The Little Prince. And some critics are calling it better than anything Pixar has done in the last ten years. The classic children's book arrives on the big screen in gorgeous 3D animation sometime later this year, with a summer release planned in France.
The Little Prince puts a modern day spin on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's exquisite novel, which is beloved by children all around the world. The story follows the adventures of a pilot who crashes his plane in the Sahara desert. There, he meets a young Prince who lives on the asteroid B-612. The pilot soon discovers that the Prince is on Earth as part of a mission to travel across the universe, meeting adults on different planets so that he can learn their personal stories.
Though The Little Prince does not yet have a release date in the states, it does have a stellar U.S. voice cast lined up. Jeff Bridges stars as the pilot, with Mackenzie Foy playing the little girl, Rachel McAdams as her mom and Marion Cotillard as the Rose. Also joining in the fun is James Franco, Benicio Del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Albert Brooks, Ricky Gervais and Bud Cort. The film will have its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month. For now, take a look and get lost in the timeless adventure that is The Little Prince!
