The Little Prince animated movie trailer released

The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince) is a book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900–1944) first published in 1943. This novella is the most translated in the French language, not only that, this fantastic story is one of the best-selling books of all time with around 140 million copies sold worldwide.

You probably read this lovely book back at school (we sure did and loved it!) and it has been adapted many times, including theatre dramas, ballet, opera, musicals, games and a graphic novel. But there’s one adaptation coming up next year mixing 2D hand drawn (on paper!) with paper cut-out, CG (Computer Graphics) and Stop Motion puppets that has captured our attention.

In this trailer we see a fusion point where the little girl (CG) imagines a hand drawn plane, which turns into a paper cut out plane and eventually leads into the beautiful stop motion puppet of The Little Prince.

This film contains the work of many top stop motion animators. There are shots animated by Evan DeRushie, Dale Hayward, Sylvie Trouvé, Philippe Tardif, Payton Curtis, and Anthony Scott.

This film, directed by Kung Fu Panda’s Mark Osborne, will be released on the 7th of October 2015 (including the english version).

 

Don’t you think it’s magical? We can’t wait to see the film!
