The computer animated version of Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic tale, The Little Prince was released in the U.S yesterday, August 5, 2016; earning positive reviews and a hefty $97.6 million, thus making it the most successful French computer animated movie of all time.
The Adventures of The Little Prince, consisting of 39 episodes where the titular character travelled to different parts of Earth on a comet, meeting and making friends, hence not following the plot of the original novella. One episode however, showed him meeting with a French pilot stranded in the desert, the pilot being the French narrator of the series- based on the actual meeting of the narrator and the little prince in the novella.
REEL SUM UP: Weary of her overbearing mother's strict regime, a little girl finds comfort in her elderly neighbour, a retired aviator who tells her about "the little prince"; a mysterious young boy from B612 he met in the desert many years ago.
The movie was directed by Mark Osborne (Kungfu Panda, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie), produced by Dimitri Rassam; with the voice talents of Mackenzie Foy, Jeff Bridges, Rachel MacAdams, James Franco, Riley Osborne and Paul Rudd.
