and Tie-ins

Come March, American audiences will finally get to see  a much-talked-about animated movie based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s beloved story, The Little Prince. After it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May, it went on to do well at the box office in France and several other countries and is now set to debut in a limited run in the US on March 18th, expanding to more theaters the following week. Directed by Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda), it features the voices of several big-name stars, including Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams and Marion Cotillard.

As the new trailer indicates, the movie presents the story of de Saint-Exupéry’s 1943 novel through the eyes of a modern-day girl who learns about the Little Prince from her neighbor, the Old Aviator (voiced by Jeff Bridges).
