The Little Prince trailer header

The Little Prince is an animated adaptation of the children’s book of the same name. The film showed plenty of promise since it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival last year and has grossed an estimated 80 million in overseas markets. But Paramount Pictures has pulled the film from its schedule one week before its release. But if you think that means that it is the end, well, there is some hope for you yet as the film is now on the lookout for a new distributor and is expected to hit theaters sometime this year.

More on the story below.

Director Mark Osborne (co-director of Kung Fu Panda) confirmed via his official Twitter account that The Little Prince was indeed being pulled by Paramount:

Now the news obviously comes as a disappointment to U.S. fans who were hoping to see The Little Prince. Paramount didn’t offer any reason as to why they decided to pull the film from its schedule, and it’s not clear who will pick the picture up now that the studio has dropped it. But Osborne remains optimistic that the U.S. will get to see it soon, hopefully some time this year.

The Little Prince is based on the children’s book of the same name by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. It features the voice talents of Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, Ricky Gervais, James Franco, Mackenzie Foy, Albert Brooks, Paul Giamatti, Marion Cotillard, and Benicio Del Toro. We were fortunate enough to review the film before it was pulled.

We’ll keep you posted about the film’s U.S. release, but for now enjoy the only trailer that Paramount has released.

Here’s the official plot synopsis:

Rediscover one of the most beloved stories of all time. At the heart of it all is The Little Girl, who’s being prepared by her mother for the very grown-up world in which they live – only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor, The Aviator. 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. 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.
