Netflix Picks Up ‘The Little Prince’

A day before it was originally set for theatrical release in the U.S., Mark Osborne’s The Little Prince has been swiftly picked up and dusted off by Netflix after being dropped by Paramount Pictures last week. The feature animation adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s classic book will premiere on the streaming service later this year.

The Cesar Award-winning film premiered out of competition at Cannes last spring, and has won critical acclaim around the world while earning about $80 million at the box office (Paramount handled the distribution in France).

Osborne’s take combines CGI and stop-motion to retell the story from the point of view of a neighborly Aviator describing the world of the Little Prince to a curious young girl. The voice cast features Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, Marion Cotillard, James Franco and Benicio del Toro.

Read more about the film in the feature story from the March issue of Animation Magazine (#258).
