From the director of Kung Fu Panda comes this critically acclaimed, re-imagined take on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic story.

And so begins the magical and emotional journey where one learns, amongst other things, it’s the human connections that matter most.

Featuring an all-star voice cast including Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Benicio Del Toro, Ricky Gervais, Albert Brooks, Paul Rudd, Mackenzie Foy, and Paul Giamatti, The Little Prince debuted on Netflix in 2016.

MY REVIEW
The Little Prince is such a beautiful story. I remember first seeing it on Netflix back in 2016, but I didn't get a chance to watch it. With the release of the Blu-ray, DVD, and digital this week, my family and I were sent a copy of the blu-ray and the hubby, six-year-old and I sat down for a little movie night last week, and this did not disappoint. Beautifully told this story is an adaption of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s timeless story, The Little Prince. 

The story is about a little girl who is trying to get accepted into the prestigious Werth Academy. After failing her interview, her mother decides that the two of them should move into Werth Academy's school district so that the little girl can study and have another shot at the interview. 

The house that the little girl and her mom move into is next door to a run-down home of an old man who is an ex-aviator. The old man likes to start up his plane in his backyard, which ultimately causes damage to the little girl's new home and puts a big hole on the side of the house. While the little girl is studying one day, the old man befriends her and tells her the story of the little prince. 

This was a gorgeous adaption of the 1943 original novel and I think it was created beautifully. The picture quality was great and we absolutely loved the movie. My six-year-old was glued to the screen the entire time and absolutely loved the friendship between the old man and the little girl.
