Cape Town – There’s something really magical about animation movies. It taps into the little child in each of us.

The English version trailer for The Little Prince has just been released and it is simply beautiful. The background music and the beautiful imagery will mesmerise you.

Based on the popular 1943 children’s book by Antoine de Saint-Exupery it tells the story of a girl with a tiger mom who is intent on forming her into a successful adult.

The little girl befriends one of their neighbours, an old eccentric man. The two of them develop a strong friendship. He tells her the story of a boy, The Little Prince who got lost in the desert after he fell from an asteroid.

The film stars A-list voices Jeff Bridges, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Rachel McAdams, and Benicio del Toro.

Watch the beautiful trailer (we dare you not to hit repeat)

The film is set to hit SA cinemas in January 2016.
