Based on the classic children’s novel by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, “The Little Prince” tells the story of a pilot who crashes in the Sahara desert (as de Saint-Exupéry was and did in real life) and who meets a young Prince, who lives on an asteroid called B-612. The Prince is currently on Earth as part of a journey to travel the universe, meeting adults on different planets and hearing their stories. Featuring drawings by Saint-Exupéry, “The Little Prince” is famous for its deeply philosophical narrative and, since 1943, has become one of the best-selling books of all time. Planned for adaptation as a 3D animated film, “The Little Prince” is targeting a 2014 release. It has been previously adapted for the stage and the screen, including a 1974 live-action musical version directed by Stanley Donen.
