A Fox, A Rose – and A Prince: Trailer for THE LITTLE PRINCE Hits Web!

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s timeless story “The Little Prince” comes to life once again on October 2015. To be directed by Mark Osbourne (of “Kung Fu Panda” fame), and penned by scriptwriter Irena Brignull, Leonardo DiCaprio (a good day to you, Mr. Jack Dawson!), serves as the film’s executive producer. The cast will feature the voices of Marion Cotillard, Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, James Franco, Paul Giammatti, Benicio del Toro and Ricky Gervais.

“The Little Prince” is the most widely read and translated French novel in the world, having been translated into more than 250 languages. It has also been adapted into plays, recordings, operas and graphic novels, as well as films. One of the more familiar film adaptations was back in 1974, which featured American comedian Gene Wilder and famed choreographer Bob Fosse.



The just-released trailer is currently featured in French, and shows a different, more up-to-date take on Saint-Exupéry’s tale. Instead of a live-action movie, “The Little Prince” will be a 3D computer animated film which also features stop-motion animation. Set in modern times, it begins a little girl sitting in front of her bedroom window and doing her homework. But she was suddenly disturbed when a paper airplane lands on her textbook. It came from her neighbor, a mysterious, eccentric old man who had a young-at-heart zest for life and who was never too far away from his telescope …


“All grown-ups were once children … but only few of them remember it.” – let’s remember it once again this coming October, shall we?

Growing up, my telenovelas were not "Anna Lisa" and "Gulong ng Palad" but "Daimos" and "Voltes V". And let's not forget "Candy Candy".
