Watch The Little Prince trailer, which brings to life Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s timeless tale of life, love and remembrance
Paramount Pictures has brought online the domestic The Little Prince trailer. In the player below, you can take a look at the new 3D animated version of the classic children’s book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
The Little Prince, first published in 1943, continues to sell more than two million copies every year. The book, which also features illustrations by the author, tells the story of a pilot who crashes in the Sahara desert (as de Saint-Exupéry was and did in real life) and who meets a young Prince, who lives on an asteroid called B-612. The Prince is currently on Earth as part of a journey to travel the universe, meeting adults on different planets and hearing their stories.
“All grown ups were once children,” reads part of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s dedication at the beginning of The Little Prince, “but few of them remember it.”
The Little Prince movie is directed by Kung Fu Panda‘s Mark Osborne and boasts an all star voice cast that includes Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, Marion Cotillard, Benicio del Toro, James Franco, Ricky Gervais, Paul Giamatti, Albert Brooks and Mackenzie Foy.
Look for The Little Prince to hit theaters domestically March 18, 2016. The film will open opposite Jeff Nichols’ sci-fi thriller Midnight Special as well as opposite the franchise sequel The Divergent Series: Allegiant.
