Mark Osborne's animated take on Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic novella will premiere at Cannes in the official selection. The film captures the much-loved illustrations from the original 1943 book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry using paper cut-out animation.
At the heart of the film is The Little Girl (Mackenzie Foy), who’s being prepared by her overachieving 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. 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 the universe of The Little Prince begins.
Dimitri Rassam worked with his team for five years on this project. “Our movie is an homage to one of France’s most iconic and revered properties, but also one of its most international, having crossed languages, cultures and generations. There is no better place than the Cannes Film Festival to showcase this unique combination,” Rassam said.
Directed by Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda),The Little Prince boasts big names among the voice cast including: Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, James Franco, Marion Cotillard and Benicio Del Toro.
The film will release in France on 29 July. A release date in Australia has not yet been confirmed.
