The Little Prince: Rediscover one of the most beloved stories of all time!


A beautifully crafted animated film, inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s beloved 1942 masterpiece, The Little Prince, by director of Kung Fu Panda Mark Osborne, will be released in South Africa from 11 December 2015.

An international team of extremely talented animated feature film professionals was drawn to both Paris and Montreal to create the film, which features a stellar voice cast of international actors,including Jeff Bridges (The Aviator), Rachel McAdams (The Mother), Marion Cotillard (The Rose), James Franco (The Fox), Albert Brooks (The Businessman), Mackenzie Foy (The Little Girl), Benicio Del Toro (The Snake), Ricky Gervais (The Conceited Man), Paul Giamatti (The Teacher), Bud Cort (The King) and Riley Osborne (The Little Prince).

Synopsis
At the heart of it all is The Little Girl, who’s being prepared by her mother for the very grown-up world in which they live – only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor, The Aviator. 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. It’s here that The Little Girl’s magical and emotional journey into the universe of The Little Prince begins. And it’s where The Little Girl rediscovers her childhood and learns that ultimately, it’s human connections that matter most, and that it is only with heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
