It’s only 2014, but judging from this international trailer for The Little Prince, we’re already calling the year’s best animated film. This is our first look at the adaptation of the childern’s classic, and I suppose it’s appropriate it’s in French since that’s the original language of the book. We’ll probably be getting an English version soon, but couldn’t wait to share it since it looked just stunning.
The voice cast for the film is pretty awesome too: Rachel McAdams, James Franco, Jeff Bridges, Marion Cotillard, Ricky Gervais, and Benicio del Toro.
The Little Prince is one of my favorite books from childhood (and now as well) and I can’t wait to see it on the screen. I like that they’re sort of bringing the book into the film by splitting up the plot line as part of the book’s appeal is it’s fantastical ideas represented in a story. I’m thinking this will be better than the Gene Wilder one.
