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

The mother tears the story pages in two halfway through the movie, however when she hands the old man the book at the end, there is no evidence of their ever having been torn. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
The Aviator: [narrating] Once, when I was six years old, I read a book about the primeval forest. The book said, "Boa constrictors swallow their prey whole, without chewing it."
[makes ravaging and shallowing sounds]
The Aviator: I pondered this deeply. And then, I did my first drawing. I showed my masterpiece to grown-ups and asked if the drawing frightened them.
Grown-up: Frightened? Why should anyone be frightened of a hat?
The Aviator: Grown-ups. They never understand anything by themselves.

Response to horrible reviews of this wonder animation
15 August 2016 | by tayfuna-47109See all my reviews

You always get the book readers moaning about the movies based on them, I get it, books are wonderful, but not everyone can read books, there are people like me, maybe invalid in some way, a visual person who likes to see, hear and learn from movies, but learn in a positive way.

This is such a movie, I have not read the book, I probably won't but watching this, I get the message, I get the wonder, I learn the lessons, but I also am amazed at the skill of the animation, the characters drawn, the lighting, the direction, the editing and the wonderful dialogues by so many actors, and the actors I love, the whole thing is wonderful experience.

So, those who wrote the horrible reviews moaning about what it should be, what it turned out to be etc. open your mind or in the case close it, put the movie on, and watch it like a child would, enjoy it, and appreciate the huge work that has gone into it.
