FILM/VIDEO: Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince)

The Little Prince is a book I'm sure everyone was read as a child. We own multiples of copies of it in both French and English in our house. Its has been translated into 180 different languages, the highest amount for a book second to the Bible. The story and the way it has been written has been analysed by literates for years and now in the era of 3D technology The Little Prince is being reborn.

I came across this article in The Observer earlier on this month, which talks about The Little Prince's busy schedule for the next year including a 52 part series which follows him on his new adventures, a computer game and a new exhibition solely for the book.

More importantly with 3D now becoming the new phenomenon in filmmaking, It is no suprise that The Little prince has been chosen to be its next project. What was really interesting was the way they have adapted the character to make it more relevant to the 21st century and to include problems that are facing our world in the modern day.
