Never let the childlike wonder in you fade away — everyone can still be a child at heart once the heart is open. Don’t be a sad adult and miss out on The Little Prince coming to life on the big screen.

The Little Prince is an English-language French 3D stop motion and computer-animated family drama adventure fantasy film directed by Mark Osborne. Irena Brignull wrote the script based on the 1943 novel of the same name by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. As the first animated feature film adaptation of The Little Prince, the film uses stop motion animation for the novel’s story and computer animation for an additional frame narrative. The film stars the voices of Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Riley Osborne, Paul Rudd, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Benicio del Toro, Ricky Gervais, Bud Cort, Paul Giamatti, Albert Brooks and Mackenzie Foy.

The film is not a straight adaptation of Saint-Exupéry’s novel. Rather, elements from the novel are woven into an original narrative about a young girl who befriends the story’s now elderly aviator narrator as she deals with her overbearing mother. The film premiered on May 22, 2015 at the 68th Cannes Film Festival in an out-of-competition screening, followed by a wide theatrical release in France on July 29, 2015 by Paramount Pictures. The film has earned $67.6 million on a $77.5 million budget.

The Little Prince opens December 2, 2015 in Philippine cinemas. The film will be released and distributed by Captive Cinema.

Watch it soon — your inner child will thank you for it.
