The first official English trailer for “The Little Prince” is here and it’s, well, magical.
The clip for the Cannes-bound film, based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic novella, makes use of a cadre of A-list voices to set the tone for the childhood classic.
James Franco, Rachel McAdams, Benicio del Toro and Jeff Bridges make the timeless story, about a pilot who encounters a golden-haired prince in the desert, leap off the screen.
Through the wonder-filled eyes of a little girl (Mackenzie Foy), this animated tale toggles back and forth between computer and groundbreaking paper-cut out animation.
"I’m not so sure I wanna grow up anymore," says the little girl.
"Growing up is not the problem, forgetting is," says her new eccentric pilot friend.
Directed by Mark Osbourne (“Kung Fu Panda”), this film is set to be released in France on July 29. No official date has been set for U.S. release.
