New The Little Prince Trailer Arrives With a Netflix Release Date

The Little Prince has hit a few speed bumps on its way to American theaters, originally scheduled for release on March 18, 2016, Paramount abruptly pulled the film from its schedule on March 11, with no explanation given. Netflix, with its seemingly bottomless bag of Screw You, We’re Netflix money, swooped in and rescued director Mark Osborne‘s film.

Now, the streaming service has unveiled a new The Little Prince trailer along with a release date.
The Little Prince is a loose adaptation of the 1943 novella by writer and illustrator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, which has sold over 140 million copies in 250 languages since its initial publication. The film version takes the plot of the book – a stranded aviator encounters a young boy who claims to have journeyed from his home on a distant asteroid – and weaves it into a larger plot about a modern girl befriending her elderly neighbor and escaping her overbearing mother while surely learning a valuable life lesson or two.

The modern day segments look like a fairly standard CG-animated film, but the actual segments revolving around the original Little Prince story are done with stop-motion animation that recalls Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s original art. They look nothing short of gorgeous.

The sprawling voice cast for The Little Prince includes Mackenzie Foy, Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Riley Osborne, Paul Rudd, James Franco, Marion Cotillard, Benicio del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Bud Cort, Albert Brooks, and Ricky Gervais.
The film will arrive on Netflix on August 5, 2016:
