I was very pleased to hear that the classic children's novel "The Little Prince" is being made into an animated featured film. Based on Antoine de Saint-Exupery's story, the tale centers on a young Prince from an asteroid called B-612, who is currently on Earth as part of a journey to travel the universe, meeting adults on different planets and hearing their stories.
The vocal talents lined up for the film are rather impressive, and include James Franco, Rachel McAdams, Paul Giamatti, Jeff Bridges, Marion Cotillard and Benicio Del Toro. Child-star Mackenzie Foy, who played Renesmee in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2", is in talks to play the title role.
"Kung Fu Panda" director Mark Osborne is helming the film, which is targeted for a 2014 release. There have been several film and TV versions of the story but definitely nothing of this caliber, in terms of talent. There is no word on who will be adapting the script but we'll keep you posted as the story develops.
