The first trailer from Pixar’s The Little Prince has arrived and man is it an emotional doozy.
As someone who read the story The Little Prince as a little girl, this trailer brought back all kinds of feels while watching the new take on the classic tale. The story of the prince who ended up on a strange planet was poignant enough, but throw in the newly added take of The Little Girl and The Aviator’s blossoming friendship and all of the lessons that are sure to follow, and this tale is sure to invoke an emotional reaction from the toughest of critics.
Grab a tissue and watch the trailer (and read the film’s description) below:
At the heart of it all is The Little Girl (Mackenzie Foy), who’s being prepared by her mother (Rachel McAdams) for the very grown-up world in which they live – only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor, The Aviator (Jeff Bridges). The Aviator introduces his new friend to an extraordinary world where anything is possible. A world that he himself was initiated into long ago by The Little Prince (newcomer Riley Osborne). It’s here that The Little Girl’s magical and emotional journey into the universe of The Little Prince begins. And it’s where The Little Girl rediscovers her childhood and learns that ultimately, it’s human connections that matter most, and that it is only with heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
The film doesn’t have an official release date yet, but will be shown in May at the Cannes Film Festival.
