The Little Prince trailer aims to melt the coldest of hearts

A new French version of ‘The Little Prince’ trailer was released this week, adding an international charm to one of 2015’s most highly-anticipated animated releases. The story comes from the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s fantastic children’s classic of the same name, and you can get a quick view of the film from the YouTube video below.

The trailer reads off, “Rediscover a timeless story like you’ve never seen it before,” if you don’t speak French, an English version is set to release later this month in time for the holidays.

The older man in the trailer says, “I flew almost everywhere in the world, until something miraculous happened,” if you have read the classic children’s tale you might recognize some of the imagery shown in the trailer, if not, you can get a pretty good idea at just what lies in wait for you when the film releases next year.

Mark Osborne of Kung Fu Panda fame is directing the film, which stars James Franco, Benicio Del Toro, Rachel McAdams and Ricky Gervais. Of course, they will be in the English version, that we will share when it is released.
