They have finally gone and made a film based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince, and it. Looks. Fantastic.
Check out the international trailer for the production, which is debuting at the Cannes Film Festival next month and opening in France later in the summer (an release date stateside is yet to be confirmed).
Directed by the maker of Kung Fu Panda and featuring an all-star voice cast that includes James Franco as The Fox, Marion Cotillard as The Rose, and Ricky Gervais as The Conceited Man, The Little Prince will focus on a curious and smart young girl (Interstellar’s Mackenzie Foy) who, in spite of her overachieving mother’s (Rachel McAdams) objections, befriends the neighbor next door, an old and eccentric aviator – ;) – voiced by Jeff Bridges. Soon, he is telling her stories, and the rest, as you can imagine is quite a story.
