Exciting news! The Little Prince is about to be rediscovered all over again, thanks to an insane, all-star cast. James Franco, Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, Benicio Del Toro, and Paul Giamatti have all signed on to bring The Little Prince back to life.
The Wrap broke the news that this long list of talent have all assembled as the voice cast for a brand new adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupery's short story. For those of you who haven't read The Little Prince, get thee to the book store (or at least check out the book-on-tape narrated by Viggo Mortensen). The story centers around a pilot who crashes in the Sahara Desert and finds the adorably-dressed boy prince who claims he has fallen to Earth from an asteroid. The story is delightful.
The animated film will be directed by Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda).
