Mark your calendars – the movie version of classic 'The Little Prince' will be released in October 2015

MANILA, Philippines – Paramount France has released the official premiere date for the highly anticipated remake of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince – October 7, 2015. We also get a first look into the film’s poster via their official Twitter account.


Word on the new adaptation of this classic children’s book had been circulating as early as 2010, when Variety broke the news about Kung Fu Panda co-director Mark Osborne set to direct the film. 

However, more substantial production details only surfaced in 2013, as The Hollywood Reporter released news on the animated film’s star-studded cast including Jeff Bridges, James Franco, Rachel McAdams and Marion Cotillard all signed on to voice the well-loved characters. 

Reports say that Mackenzie Foy, Benicio del Toro, Paul Giamatti and Albert Brooks will also be involved with the film. 

The film will follow the storyline of the classic children’s novella by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Following the travels of a pilot who meets a young prince in a desert, The Little Prince is known for its metaphors and profound insights about life.  

With universal themes of love and loneliness told with childlike innocence, the story speaks volumes about human nature. 

Taking this to the big screen, the first English adaptation of The Little Prince was released back in 1974 as a musical. This was also distributed by Paramount France, directed and produced by Stanley Donen.  

How do you think the 2015 adaptation of The Little Prince will breathe new life into this classic story? Let us know what you think. –
