What an extraordinary trailer. It doesn’t tell us everything about the film, while also piquing our interest. It looks to be a film for all ages and the visuals-especially the paper mache styled sequences-look simply stunning. This year in film should be an interesting one for animation with Pixar back in the game with Inside Out and Studio Ghibli debuting their last film for the foreseeable future with When Marnie Was There but The Little Prince seems to have captured a piece of magic for itself. I’m certainly excited.
Check out the synopsis and the trailer below!
At the heart of it all is The Little Girl (Mackenzie Foy), who’s being prepared by her mother (Rachel McAdams) for the very grown-up world in which they live – only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor, The Aviator (Jeff Bridges). The Aviator introduces his new friend to an extraordinary world where anything is possible. A world that he himself was initiated into long ago by The Little Prince (newcomer Riley Osborne). It’s here that The Little Girl’s magical and emotional journey into the universe of The Little Prince begins. And it’s where The Little Girl rediscovers her childhood and learns that ultimately, it’s human connections that matter most, and that it is only with heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
