'The Little Prince' Brings the French Novel to the Big Screen

Now this looks more interesting that your usual animated fare, which I'm sure has something to do with the fact that it's a French production. Even though it's packed with celebrity voice actors as usual, maybe the most significant thing about this movie (which employs stop motion animation for the The Little Prince story and computer animation for the narrative surrounding it), is that it doesn't look like an action film. It's set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month and open in France in July, but we'll have to wait and see when Paramount chooses to distribute it here in the U.S.
