Paramount is making The Little Prince as a story-within-a-story. One story is that of the Little Prince, the boy “who lived on a planet that was scarcely any bigger than himself,” tended a haughty rose plant, and tamed a fox. The other is the story of an overly-responsible little girl whose life has been planned down to the slightest detail by her mother. Then she meets an old man who tells her of the Little Prince and teaches her wonder.
The animation in this trailer is impressive. The tale…we’ve seen a lot of shows about the need for wonder. They make an important point. From this trailer though, it looks like the moral is going to be laid on pretty quickly.
