The animated adaptation of The Little Prince looks really really good.

This trailer for "The Little Prince" surprised me with its quality. It looks like something I'd expect from Pixar at the height of its powers. I know nothing of the story, but I've always been drawn to animation. One of the things that I really like in the trailer is how the animation kind of switches up during the story of "The Little Prince." If this is one of the most beloved stories of all time, I think I've got some catching up to do. I guess it's a good thing that the movie is coming out next year after it makes its big splash at Cannes.

  3. You could read the book in like 5 mins, it's so short. I kind of like it, but also don't quite get all the fuss, too. But the movie looks great

  5. That does look good. And it has a lot of big name people in it. It's nice to find animated movies I'd actually want to see that I can take my daughter to. I hadn't heard of the story either, so I should look it up. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend!

  10. Anyone who studied high school French pretty much had to read Le Petit Prince--but I read it in English. Sweet story, and the animation looks spot-on.

  11. I bought the book sometime back but never read it. I am ashamed yo say I don't even remember why I ordered it off The Book Depository website. Will read it one day soon though. Especially with this movie coming out and I must agree that it has wonderful visuals. Also it was very touching. I checked Wikipedia and hopefully when it comes to the U.S.A. March 2016 then it will also reach Jamaica soon. Hopefully it is not overwhelmed by the Batman vs. Superman hype.
