The Little Prince

Despite the dominance of your Pixars, your DreamWorks Animations, your Blue Skies and your Sony Pictures Animations, there are still the indie animation producers managing to find space in the crowded marketplace to bring out smaller, interesting films. Onyx Films, for example, now has an all-star cast lined up for The Little Prince, with Jeff Bridges, James Franco, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, Benicio del Toro and Paul Giamatti aboard.

Original Kung Fu Panda director Mark Osborne is on board to direct the tale, which will adapt Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s 1943 book Le Petit Prince.

The plot finds a pilot crashing in the Sahara desert and meeting a young boy who claims to be a prince fallen to Earth from an asteroid. He regales the flyer with tales of other asteroids, narrow-minded adults, a fox, a rose and more.

Since its publication, the book has been adapted several times, with Paramount releasing a live-action version back in 1974 and, more recently, a French TV cartoon series. There's no indication yet on when this new, big-budget film version will land.
