Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s 1943 novella The Little Prince has fast become a children’s classic, and now it looks like it’s going to get a big screen animated adaptation, with a fairly starry cast lining up to add their voice talents.
THR reports that James Franco, Rachel McAdams, Jeff Bridges, Marion Cotillard, Benicio Del Toro and Paul Giamatti have all signed up to voice characters in the movie. Mark Osborned (Kung Fu Panda) is set to direct.
The Little Prince is about a pilot who crash lands in the Sahara desert and then comes across a young boy who claims to hail from an asteroid and has fallen to Earth. As the pilot fixes his plane, the boy tells him stories about his homeworld.
Bridges will be provide the voice of the pilot, but there’s no info on who the other actors will be portraying.
