An International Trailer For "The Little Prince" Has Been Released And It's Beautiful

The Little Prince by the French author Antoine de Saint-Exupery is one of the most beloved books of all time. Since being published in 1943, it has captivated millions of readers from all corners of the globe with its beautiful writing and illustrations. It has been translated into 250 languages and it continues to sell over one million copies every year.

Because of the book's huge following, it has been adapted at least a dozen times for television and film audiences. The latest in these adaptations is a full-length French animated feature that's scheduled to hit theaters in October next year. Directed by Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie), The Little Prince will be distributed by Paramount Pictures France.

The film will be featuring the voices of Riley Osborne, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, James Franco, Jeff Bridges, Benicio del Toro, Ricky Gervais, and Paul Giamatti.

Watch the international trailer for The Little Prince below. If you are wondering about the song featured in the trailer, it's Somewhere Only We Know by Lily Allen. It's her cover version of an original song of the same title by the English rock band Keane.
