Oscar-winning short-film director Wil Vinton (Closed Mondays) brings author Antoine de Saint-Exupery's beloved children's tale to life through the art of clay animation. When a pilot is forced to land deep in the desert, he soon makes the acquaintance of a friendly but mysterious visitor known as The Little Prince. As the pilot spends the following days repairing the engine of his airplane, the Little Prince entertains his newfound friend with tales of his faraway home planet and his intergalactic quest to find an elusive and unique flower. After taming a wild desert fox, the young space traveler discovers an important lesson in matters of the heart hidden deep within the velvet peddles of a common rose.
