Storyline

From Mark Osborne comes the first-ever animated feature film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's iconic masterpiece, The Little Prince. At the heart of it all is The Little Girl, who's being prepared by her mother for the very grown-up world in which they live - only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor, The Aviator. The Aviator introduces his new friend to an extraordinary world where anything is possible. A world that he himself was initiated into long ago by The Little Prince. It's here that The Little Girl's magical and emotional journey into her own imagination - and into the universe of The Little Prince - begins. And it's where The Little Girl rediscovers her childhood and learns that ultimately, it's human connections that matter most, and that what's truly essential can only be seen with the heart.

Trivia

Mark Osborne was pitching the movie to actors, artists and distributors all over the world using what he called a "magic suitcase" full of hand-made visual aids specifically create to communicate the tone and passion for the project. Model maker Joe Schmidt created this suitcase, which held the art book, and told the story of the movie visually. Schmidt had created a snapshot of Osborne's vision for the film: a constellation of tiny planets and stars lighted up on one side, a giant art book of illustrations filled the other. From somewhere deep inside the case, Osborne pulled out two large white circles that held slides that when placed up to each eye displayed 3-D images of stop-motion puppets. Then Osborne started flipping switches. In no time, a one-way mirror slid away to reveal a hidden chamber holding a collection of yellowed pages below. It was a mock-up of Saint-Exupéry's original manuscript, a key plot point in Osborne's film. Over the course of four years, Osborne pitched the movie close to 400 times. See more »

Goofs

When the Little Girl claps for the first time "The Conceited Man" took kudos by taking his hat off with his "right hand" but next time while holding The Little Girl with "left hand" he drops her and took kudos with his "left hand" although his "right hand" was free. See more »

[the Conceited Man stops and looks at Mr. Prince with The Little Girl was held by him]
Mr. Prince: Take your hands off her.
The Businessman: What? Stop?
Mr. Prince: I-I'm not a failure.
The Businessman: [questioned] Oh?
Mr. Prince: ...I'm The Little Prince.
The Businessman: [surprised] What?... He thinks he's little! And a prince!

There is hope
27 October 2015 | by hdadizadehSee all my reviews

Very successful in bringing Little Prince into today. The movie made me to read the Little Prince again and learn more. The challenge between living natural and living modern became fully alive in my mind again and again. Like my childhood. I have a neighbor very similar to Aviator. He had long white hair and a very old jacket. He had a magic smile. I think he was very similar to Aviator. All of my memories of him became animated in front of my eyes while watching the movie. Maybe everyone has someone like Aviator in his or her life or must find. The snake scene was very deep like book. The movie made me to believe yet there is hope for peace.
