The world has been transfixed by the story of "The Little Prince" for decades, and at long last, we can finally see the enchanting story brought to life on-screen in a way that does it justice. The French trailer for the new film has just been released, and it might actually be the most beautiful thing we've ever seen.
Directed by Mark Osborne, who previously helmed the kid flick "Kung Fu Panda," "The Little Prince" blends stop-animation and CGI together to capture that whimsical look we so love from Antoine de Saint-Exupery's original story. And for those who haven't yet picked up the tale, Saint-Exupery's book centers around the story of a pilot who crash-lands in a desert. There, he meets a young prince who is also far from home — he's fallen to Earth from an asteroid. Together, they discuss this strange world called "Earth," discuss the meaning of life and other deep, philosophical things that take the story far beyond just a children's tale. One of its more touching lines: "One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes."
To this day, "The Little Prince" remains one of France's most popular titles, and it's easy to see why.
