The Little Prince is not a Pixar film. But the new trailer for the summer film comes with a layer of the studio’s magic dust, which has been known to give grown-ups the sniffles in movies such as Toy Story 3,Up, or WALL•E.
Directed by Kung Fu Panda’s Mark Osborne and based on the beloved 1943 children’s book by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, the film tells the story of a young girl (Mackenzie Foy) whose no-nonsense mother (Rachel McAdams) is overeager to transform her into a successful adult. But when the girl forms a bond with her grizzled, out-there neighbor (Jeff Bridges), she learns about the magic of imagination and the story of the Little Prince, a lost boy in the desert who fell from an asteroid. James Franco voices the Fox, who befriends the Prince and helps him learn about the adult world.
The Little Prince is debuting at Cannes in May and opening in France on July 29. It still doesn’t have a U.S. release date.
