The issue of growing up and how to manage it is the real story behind the beautiful film that is The Little Prince, as a little girl learns that there’s plenty of time for becoming an adult, but childhood is very finite.
In the new trailer for the film, we see The Little Girl’s mother meticulously grooming her to be the perfect adult, until she meets their unique old neighbor The Aviator. The Aviator has a story that he’s been waiting a long time to tell and the lesson is one that The Little Girl needs to hear: the story of The Little Prince.
Watch the stunning new trailer below (and be warned, you may need tissues handy):
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 Little Prince will premiere in theaters in 2016.
