<span id="selection-marker-1" class="redactor-selection-marker"></span>The animated adaption of The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, has been highly anticipated for months, and now there's some great news. Netflix has announced the movie's release date along with a brand-new trailer. The streaming service picked up the film in March, after Paramount Pictures unexpectedly dropped it from its schedule. A pilot's plane crashes in the desert, where he encounters a small, strange boy. The movie revolves around a young girl and her neighbor, an older man who is presumably the pilot. Mackenzie Foy, James Franco, Benicio Del Toro, Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, and Ricky Gervais are all voicing the Us version, which will be released on Netflix and in select theaters on August 5.

Surprising news out of Paramount today after it was revealed that the studio has now pulled the theatrical release of The Little Prince at the 11th hour. Mark Osborne’s stop-motion animation had been pegged for a release today, March 18.
In its place, the long-awaited feature has found a new home at Netflix, with the online giant poised to drop The Little Prince later in 2016. Taking inspiration from Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s beloved 1943 novel – it’s considered a loose adaptation – Osborne’s directorial effort features a combination of stop-motion animation and CGI effects, and began to make waves shortly after its premiere at Cannes International Film Festival last year, where it screened out of competition.
It’s a case of ‘so close, yet so far’ for The Little Prince, though considering that its pulled in close to $100 million since its bow in other territories – not to mention the small matter »

The upcoming French animated film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic children's novel "The Little Prince" has been pulled without warning from the release schedule by its distributor Paramount Pictures.
IGN has confirmed with Paramount that the studio will no longer be distributing the film, and they didn't provide an explanation for what happened.

As it turns out, the much anticipated U.S. release of this special and unique film will have to be anticipated just a little bit more. All I can say is #thelittleprince will in fact be released by another distributor later this year. Until then, head to Canada! The film opens there in wide release this weekend!"
