Who remembers the little boy from the book The Little Prince, and all the memories that came along with it? If you have not, you should really check out the book, written in 1943 by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and translated by Katherine Woods. The Little Prince follows the journey of the narrator, a pilot who crashes in the Sahara desert and meets a little prince who asks him to draw a sheep. Through whimsical illustrations and narration, the story brings the reader from planet to planet, each ruled by a single adult. There begins a whole philosophical narrative of what it means to be an adult. The story is a hit among parents and children alike.
For the first time ever, Entertainment One and Paramount are producing a movie based off the old childhood classic. Could they possibly replicate the beauty and magic of the book into an animated movie? We are nevertheless filled with great expectations.
Watch the trailer below:
The trailer doesn’t reveal too much and we hope to keep it that way. We cannot wait to see what would behold us next year.
You can see the transcript below:
Girl opens paper plane
Old Man – “Oh here I am, up here!” old man waves “Hi!”
Girl – “Once upon a time, there was a little prince in the need of… a friend?”
Old Man– “I flew more or less all over the world… until something miraculous happened.”
Little Prince – “If you could please, draw me a sheep.”
Old Man – “I’ve always wanted to find someone to share his story with, but I guess this world got too grown up”
“It’s only the beginning of the story!”
