First Trailer For Upcoming Animated Adaptation Of THE LITTLE PRINCE

Mark Osborne (The Spongebob Squarepants Movie) directs this lovely looking take on Antoine De Saint-Exupery's classic children's book. The movie will mix CG & stop motion animation, & features the voices of Rachel McAdams, James Franco, Marion Cotillard, Benicio Del Toro & Ricky Gervais.

Unfortunately you won't hear any of them in this particular trailer, because it's in French! The Little Prince has always been one of my favourite stories, but the slim novella hardly warrants a full-length animated feature. With that in mind, they've added a framing story of a little girl discovering the Prince's earthly adventures with, we assume, the stranded pilot/author as we do in the movie.

The Little Prince stars Riley Osborne as the Prince, Marion Cotillard as The Rose, Rachel McAdams as The Mother, James Franco as The Fox, Jeff Bridges as The Aviator, Benicio del Toro as The Snake, Ricky Gervais as The Conceited Man, Paul Giamatti as The Teacher, Albert Brooks as Businessman, Bud Cort as The King, and Mackenzie Foy as The Girl. The film is set for release in France on October 7th, 2015. No US/UK date has been announced yet.
