From director Mark Osborne and Netflix, “The Little Prince” is a feature length animated film inspired by the French novella Le Petit Prince, first published in 1943 by poet, author and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
Osborne’s film uses four types of animation: hand drawn 2D animation, CG animation, paper cutout animation and stop-motion animation to bring this fable of friendship, love, loss and loneliness to life.
THE LITTLE PRINCE focuses on a young girl we come to know as “The Little Girl,” who is being prepared by her mother for the very grown-up world in which they live. As The Little Girl adjusts to a new home, school and surroundings, her world is suddenly interrupted by an eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor we come to know as “The Aviator.” The Aviator introduces her to a new world where anything is possible, a world that he himself was initiated into long ago by “The Little Prince.” It’s there that The Little Girl embarks on a personal odyssey into the universe of The Little Prince, a world where it is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
THE LITTLE PRINCE was produced by Aton Soumache, Dimitri Rassam and Alexis Vonarb with Jinko Gotoh and Osborne serving as executive producers. The international team of artists and actors working on the film includes Jeff Bridges (“The Aviator”), Rachel McAdams (“The Mother”), Mackenzie Foy (“The Little Girl”), Marion Cotillard (“The Rose”), James Franco (“The Fox”), Albert Brooks (“The Businessman”), Benicio Del Toro (“The Snake”), Ricky Gervais (“The Conceited Man”), Bud Cort (“The King”), and Riley Osborne (“The Little Prince”) with Paul Giamatti (“The Teacher”). THE LITTLE PRINCE includes an original score and songs by Hans Zimmer & Richard Harvey featuring Camille, production design by Lou Romano, Alexander Juhasz and Céline Desrumaux, stop-motion creative director Jamie Caliri, character design by Alexander Juhasz and Peter de Seve, editing by Matt Landon and Carole Kravetz, sound design by Tim Neilson, and an adapted screenplay by Irena Brignull and Bob Persichetti, based on a story conceived by Osborne.
