WATCH: La Petit Prince Trailer (with an English transcript)
From the creator of Kung Fu Panda
We’re sure you were pretty excited when the La Petit Prince trailer was released on YouTube on December 8...mais parce que ce est en français, vous ne comprenez pas. Vulture got on top of the situation and in an article by Lindsay Weber, a loose translation of the narration was made available:
Old man: Oh, oh! I’m here! Up here! [He waves.] Good evening!
Little girl: [Reading] Once upon a time, a little prince who needed a friend?
Old man: I’ve flown almost everywhere in the world, until something miraculous happened.
Little Prince: Please, draw me a sheep.
Old man: I’ve always wanted to find someone to share my story with, but I think this world has become too grown-up ... It’s only the beginning of the story!
Fans of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic already know the story by heart and would probably understand the movie in Klingon. Still, the cast for an English version has been identified and they’re pretty awesome: Marion Cotillard, Jeff Bridges, James Franco, Rachel McAdams, Benicio Del Toro, and Paul Giamatti.
Let’s hope they screen it here in Manila!
