“a timeless depiction of childhood wonderment at odds with grown-up disillusionment...”
Rediscover one of the most beloved stories of all time. From Mark Osborne, Academy Award nominated director of Kung Fu Panda, comes the first-ever animated feature film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s iconic masterpiece, The Little Prince. 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 neighbour, The Aviator (Jeff Bridges).
The Aviator introduces his new friend to an extraordinary world where anything is possible, which he was initiated into long ago by The Little Prince (newcomer Riley Osborne), where they learn that it’s human connections that matter most.
Joining this already exceptional cast is Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Paul Rudd, Benicio Del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Albert Brooks, Bud Cort and Ricky Gervais. French chanteuse Camille provides some of the atmospheric tunes tantalizingly arranged by legendary composers Richard Harvey and Hans Zimmer.
