Netflix has become a staple in all our lives and with their amazing original content such as the recent Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, and House of Cards. We were delighted to see a 3D animation film, The Little Prince, premiere directly to Netflix. Be prepared to watch The Little Prince tonight!
– The Animation Mentor Crew
Winner of the César Award for Best Animated Film at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, The Little Prince is not a direct adaptation of Antoine de Saint Exupéry’s Le Petit Prince. The latest film version is about a Little Girl, her Mother, her new neighbor and how she imagines this iconic story. A mixture of computer 3D animation and stop motion animation, Mark Obsorne (Kung Fu Panda) directs this beautiful film featuring voices from Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, James Franco, Marion Cotillard, Benicio Del Toro, Ricky Gervais, Paul Rudd, Paul Giamatti and Albert Brooks.
The Little Prince can also be seen in theaters in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles starting August 5th.
Congratulations to the Animation Mentor alumni who worked on this film, we spot 6 animators in the credits!
Go watch it now!
