With an A-list voice cast that includes Rachel McAdams and James Franco, the first trailer for ‘The Little Prince’ is out — and it’s beautiful.

Hopefully you’ve been brushing up on your French! For the first time, the popular French novella The Little Prince has been adapted into an animated film filled with excitement and wonder for the big screen.

‘The Little Prince’s First Trailer — WATCH

It’s been a while since an animated film has truly captured hearts, so it’s about time we get our first look at the highly anticipated The Little Prince.

We meet “The Little Girl,” voiced by Twilight‘s Mackenzie Foy, just in time for her friendship with a cooky old man next door, “The Aviator” voiced by Jeff Bridges, to begin.

The film will follow The Aviator as he tells The Little Girl about a young pilot who crashed in the desert and met a peculiar little boy, “The Little Prince,” who — spoiler alert — is actually from another planet.

The ensemble voice cast also includes Marion Cotillard, Benicio Del Toro, and Paul Giamatti.

Check out your first look at The Little Prince above, and stay tuned for an English version of the trailer!
