Netflix unveils a new The Little Prince Trailer
Netflix has brought online a new The Little Prince trailer for the 3D-animated version of the classic children’s book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Check it out below!
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.”
In the new film, a little girl lives in a very grown-up world with her mother, who tries to prepare her for it. Her neighbor, the Aviator, introduces the girl to an extraordinary world where anything is possible, the world of the Little Prince.
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 premiere theatrically on August 5 in addition to becoming available on Netflix.
