The first official trailer of the film animation Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince) was released around four months ago, last year. And it was in french, and it is still moving even though, you’re just looking at the resemblance of the animation from the characters pictured in the original book by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
Actually, there’s another that we’ve seen in YouTube that is in english, though it starts to narrate in Japanese before long. However, watching the official trailer when you fully understand every word it says is really something. There’s a nostalgic, heart-warming feeling that readily brings back childhood thoughts and dreams.
You got to love this line, and surely you’ll never miss it when you read the book. Also, top it up with James Franco’s voice as clever, unfolding and adventurous.
“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
The film is actually created using both CG and stop-motion, helmed under Mark Osborne. Voices in character were Riley Osborne’s (The Little Prince), James Franco (The Fox), Rachel McAdams, Mackenzie Foy, Jeff Bridges, Benicio Del Toro, Paul Giamatti and Albert Brooks’ among others.
The Little Prince was originally due for release by October 7, 2015 in France, though it takes an earlier release date this July 29, instead. US release date is yet to be announced.
