Synopsis by Jennifer Lackman
A young girl (voice of Mackenzie Foy) strikes up a friendship with her neighbor, an eccentric aviator (Jeff Bridges) who tells her stories about a prince from a far-away asteroid whom he once met in the desert. These tales also include the prince's adventures across the cosmos and on Earth, as he encounters talking animals, a foolish businessman, and a monarch with no subjects. Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, Benicio Del Toro, Albert Brooks, Paul Rudd, James Franco, Ricky Gervais, and Paul Giamatti also lend their voices to this animated adaptation of the beloved illustrated novella by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, which uses CGI for the scenes in the little girl's world and stop-motion animation for the prince's tales. Directed by Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda).
