Enchanting New Teaser Trailer for THE LITTLE PRINCE
A new trailer for the animated big screen adaptation of The Little Prince has been released, and I couldn't be more excited to see this movie. I'm a fan of the 1943 book written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and after seeing how well Charlie Brown was handled in The Peanuts Movie, I think there's a good chance that this could be just as great a film. I love the style of this movie, it looks like it stays true to the spirit of the story, and it simply looks magical and charming.
The movie was directed by Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda), and it was created using a mix of CG and stop-motion animation to bring the story to life. That story has a stellar voice cast that includes 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.
At the heart of it all is The Little Girl (Mackenzie Foy), who’s being prepared by her mother (Rachel McAdams) for the very grown–‐up world in which they live – only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind–‐hearted neighbor, The Aviator (Jeff Bridges). The Aviator introduces his new friend to an extraordinary world where anything is possible. A world that he himself was initiated into long ago by The Little Prince (newcomer Riley Osborne). It’s here that The Little Girl’s magical and emotional journey into her own imagination – and into the universe of The Little Prince – begins. And it’s where The Little Girl rediscovers her childhood and learns that ultimately, it’s human connections that matter most, and that what’s truly essential can only be seen with the heart.
The Little Prince opens on March 18th, 2016.
