A new international trailer for "The Little Prince" takes viewers on a fantastical voyage, offering breathtaking visuals and evoking lots of heartstring tugging along the way.
The flick is the first feature-length, animated adaptation of the classic French novella, "Le Petit Prince," by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, and boasts a stellar voice cast that includes Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, James Franco, Marion Cotillard, and Benicio Del Toro.
The full synopsis, per Variety:
The multilayered animated tale centers around a little girl (Mackenzie Foy) who lives with her mother (McAdams) and gets initiated by her eccentric yet kind-hearted neighbor, the Aviator (Bridges), into a magical world where anything is possible - a world that the Aviator himself was initiated into long ago by the Little Prince (played by newcomer Riley Osborne).
That "multilayered" descriptor also applies to the film's animation itself, which is a mix of different media, including computer animation and intricate, papercut stop-motion. The painstaking level of detail on display in the trailer is jaw-dropping, every pixel packed with a visual punch. The clip also boasts a haunting, soaring score that will leave your heart full and your eyes a little misty.
Watch the beautiful trailer below. "The Little Prince" is set to debut at the Cannes Film Festival, and has a July 29 release date in France. A U.S. release date is forthcoming.
