Coming form King Fu Panda director Mark Osborne, 3D animation/stop motion mix The Little Prince offers a modern twist on the classic children's book by Antoine Saint-Exupery, telling the tale of a pilot who crashes in the Sahara desert, and meets a young Prince who has travelled from his home on a distant asteroid on a journey to meet people from other planets and hear their stories. Boasting an amazing voice cast, including Jeff Bridges, Mackenzie Foy, Ricky Gervais, Marion Cotillard, Paul Rudd, Benico del Toro, and James Franco, this looks absolutely beautiful, with the promise of an incredibly emotional story at its core. I will admit to feeling a bit teary eyed as the trailer reached its joyous crescendo. This will definitely be one to delight adults and kids alike. There is no Irish or American release date as of yet, but it is expected to come our »

Need a little animation fix between your Cannes films? It seems like this could be the answer.
The new, international trailer for The Little Prince was released on Monday and it offers a preview at one of the year’s more imaginative animated films. The movie is set to premiere out of competition at the Cannes Film Festival.
Featuring the voice talents of Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, James Franco, Marion Cotillard, Jeff Bridges, Benicio Del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Ricky Gervais, and Mackenzie Foy, The Little Prince follows the story of a pilot crashes in the desert and meets a little boy from a distant planet. The story was first published in 1943 by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
The latest trailer dives more into the story than the first one and seems to illustrate the imagination that is going into this adaptation. It seems to be blending both digital CGI with some other animation styles such as stop-motion, »

One of the most well-loved children’s stories of all-time is bound for the big screen. The latest adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s novella The Little Prince hails from King Fu Panda helmer Mark Osborne, who takes a few liberties with the popular source material for his vision. But to be frank, with trailers this captivating and visually adventurous, it’s unlikely anyone will have cause for complaint.
The Little Prince tells the story of an Aviator whose plane crashes in the desert, which is where he meets the titular prince from an asteroid-sized planet whose day trip to Earth is part of his exploration of the galaxy. One of those aforementioned changes tying together the movie is a wraparound story that’s made apparent in this new preview. Featuring a young girl and her next-door neighbor, it’s a slight adjustment that shouldn’t sully the gloriousness of the stop-motion animation on display. »

Osborne's animated adventure will have its world premiere at the 68th Cannes Film Festival out of competition next month.
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, »

Set as of Thursday to make its premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival Out of Competition, a new international trailer for Mark Osbourne's (Kung Fu Panda) film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupery beloved children's book The Little Prince has arrived. While this isn't the first teaser for the film, it is the first time English-speaking audiences can see the American voice cast. And boy, did they go all out with this voice cast, with Jeff Bridges, Mackenzie Foy, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Albert Brooks, Paul Rudd, Ricky Gervais, Bud Cort, Rachel McAdams, Benicio Del Toro and Paul Giamatti lending their pipes to the animated picture. While it's hard to shake off The Lorax vibes created by a newly created child protagonist and her new old friend, there does seem to be more love and charm here than that film, not to mention how beautiful the animation is during the actual Little Prince moments. »

The films competing in the 68th Cannes Film Festival were announced this morning at a press conference in Paris. The festival’s new president Pierre Lescure and Thierry Frémaux kept the suspense going as they unveiled this year’s eclectic and rather art house-y selection. In total, 16 films have been selected in the official competition thus far. Another four films are set to be added in the next couple of weeks. The official competition will be presided by the Coen Brothers. Their short film about cinema, which had screened for the 65th anniversary of the festival in 2007, was once again shown at the press conference. Starring Josh Brolin, it is both funny and poignant. American competitors include Todd Haynes with Carol, starring Cate Blanchett, and Gus Van Sant is marking his return to the Croisette with The Sea of Trees, starring Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts. Australian co-production Macbeth, directed by Justin Kurzel, »

The 2015 Cannes Film Festival lineup was announced this morning and it's quite impressive as it includes several titles I'd be rushing to line up for, which makes my not going for the second year in a row all the more frustrating. Titles I'd be most excited to see including the new Jacques Audiard movie Dheepan, the new film from Yorgos Lanthimos The Lobster and Denis Villeneuve's Sicario. Matteo Garrone's The Tale of Tales is obviously an exciting title as are Macbeth starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, Carol from Todd Haynes and Youth from Paolo Sorrentino. Gus Van Sant will arrive on the Croisette with The Sea of Trees starring Matthew McConaughey, Pixar will arrive with Inside Out, Woody Allen's Irrational Man will screen and we already knew Mad Max: Fury Road would screen. I won't lie, seeing the lineup had me considering looking at the bank »
