U.S. audiences finally have a date for the national debut of Mark Osborne’s globally acclaimed CG and stop-motion feature The Little Prince. On August 5, the film will roll out to select theaters and arrive on Netflix streaming, which picked up the distribution rights from Paramount back in March.
The Little Prince invites audiences to rediscover one of the most beloved stories of all time. At the heart of it all is a Little Girl and her mother who is preparing her for the world in which they live – only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor, The Aviator. The Aviator introduces The Little Girl to his new friend The Little Prince, and a world where anything is possible. The voice cast features Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, Marion Cotillard, James Franco and Ricky Gervais.
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. You can read more about it in Tom McLean’s feature story which originally appeared in the March 2016 issue of Animation Magazine (#258).
