You must have heard about Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s The Little Prince, a classic children’s book reminding us that growing up doesn’t mean you should lose your youthful optimism. Sounds familiar, right? If so, you should definitely reserve this Sunday afternoon for it. No, you won’t read it, but watching on Netflix!
A must for both kids and adults
“A little girl lives in a very grown-up world with her mother, who tries to prepare her for it. Her neighbor, the Aviator, introduces the girl to an extraordinary world where anything is possible, the world of the Little Prince,” says the synopsis, courtesy of Netflix. Also, if this hasn’t convinced you yet, you can check out the trailer:
We really liked that the movie used several references to the drawings in the original, looking like pages of the book have been pulled onto the screen.
Directed by Mark Osbourne, The Little Prince put together actors and actresses like Jeff Bridged, Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, Marion Cotillard, Ricky Gervais or James Franco, all of them bringing characters to life, says Netflix Life.
Yes, it’s a Netflix exclusive
Initially, Paramount planned a theatrical release of the movie, based on the 1943 book, for May 2016, but eventually, their plans changed and the streaming rights were sold to Netflix, transforming the production into an exclusive for the streaming platform.
The Little Prince is available for streaming on Netflix U.S., United Kingdom, Australia and New Zeeland, starting with August 5.
