Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s 1943 novel ‘The Little Prince‘ has been beloved by kids and philosophical grown-ups for generations – in fact it’s the most-read and 3rd most-translated book in the world. The deceptively simple (and quite trippy) story follows a prince who meets an aviator in a desert and tells him about his intergalactic adventures and his best friend a vain rose.
Now the tale has been brought to the big screen with a new framing story that follows a child prodigy (Mackenzie Foy) and her eccentric neighbour (Jeff Bridges).
The cast also includes Rachel McAdams, James Franco, James Franco, Benicio Del Toro, Ricky Gervais, Albert Brooks, and Marion Cotillard.
That’s due out later this year. Looking forward to it? Let me know @showbizgeek
