The Little Prince movie looks both beautiful and something totally unexpected.

The whole movie's premise is not just about the Little Prince, but a story within a story! 

Directed by Mark Osborne, the film stars a voice cast of Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Rachel McAdams and Jeff Bridges. The domestic trailer hasn't been released yet but this French trailer had, and as you can see actual pages from the 1943 work The Little Prince in the trailer. And the actual "in the book" scenes are gorgeous. Can't wait to see where this goes; we did not expect this visual twist.

Business Insider:

We just got the trailer for the star-studded animated feature "The Little Prince," based on the 1943 novel by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

The movie combines computer-generated animation with traditional stop-motion animation techniques. Judging by the trailer, the movie promises to be a strong contender in the category of Best Animated Feature at next year's  Academy Awards. 

Directed by Mark Osbourne ("Kung Fu Panda"), "The Little Prince" features a cavalcade of stars including Rachel McAdams, James Franco and Jeff Bridges. It is produced by On Animation Studios.

The movie looks like the first animated feature since Pixar's "Up" that promises to widely appeal to both children and adult audiences. In the last few years, the famous animation studio has invested heavily in sequels to previous hits, despite a promising upcoming slate of originals such as "Inside Out" and "The Good Dinosaur."

There's still no official North American release date, but the movie will screen at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
