The Little Prince is a 2015 English-language French 3D animated fantasy adventure drama film directed by Mark Osborne and based on the 1943 novella of the same name by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The film relates the story of the book using stop motion animation, which is woven into a computer animated framing narrative about a young girl who has just met the book's now-elderly aviator narrator, who tells her the story of his meeting with the Little Prince in the Sahara desert. The film's animation was provided by studio Mikros Image.

The Little Prince[edit]

  • It is only with heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
  • What makes the desert beautiful,' said the little prince, 'is that somewhere it hides a well...
  • If you love a flower that lives on a star, it is sweet to look at the sky at night. All the stars are a-bloom with flowers...


The Little Prince: I am looking for friends. What does that mean - tame?
The Fox: It is an act too often neglected," said the fox. "It means to establish ties.
The Little Prince: To establish ties?
The Fox: Just that," said the fox. "To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world."

The Little Prince: Hey, come and play with me.
The Fox: I cannot play with you. I'm not tamed.

The Aviator: Hey. Hey. You hungry? I know a great place where we can get free pancakes on your birthday.
The Little Girl: But my birthday's not for two weeks.
The Aviator: They don't know that.

The Businessman: [after using one of the stars as example for powering his planet] There, you see? The inessential has become perfectly essential. [to the Little Girl, angry] How it should be for all things. [ordering The Conceited Man and pointing to the classroom] Take her back to the classroom. Make sure no one interferes.
[The Conceited Man grabs The Little Girl's arm as he was about to get her to the classroom, as the latter was trying to break free of The Conceited Man's grip]
The Little Girl: No! Let me go, I can't...
The Conceited Man: [to the Little Girl] Stop!
The Little Girl: Don't let them do this to me!
The Conceited Man: [to the Little Girl] I said stop!
Mr. Prince: [to the Businessman] ... Wait.
The Businessman: [to Mr. Prince] Wait? I've given you 371 jobs, and you have been fired from 370 of them. I think it's time you go back to work, my little failure.

[Mr. Prince is telling The Conceited Man when he was bringing The Little Girl back to the classroom]
Mr. Prince: Stop!
[The Conceited Man stops and looks at Mr. Prince with The Little Girl was held by him]
Mr. Prince: Take your hands off her.
The Businessman: What? Stop?
Mr. Prince: I-I'm not a failure.
The Businessman: [questioned] Oh?
Mr. Prince: ...I'm The Little Prince.
The Businessman: [surprised] What?... He thinks he's little! And a prince! [he and his associates laugh; mocks] Look at me! I'm a bumblebee! [to one of his men] What are you? A duck?
[The Businessman and his associates continue laughing hard]
The Businessman: [darkly] He's hopeless.
Mr. Prince: ...I'm not hopeless.
[The Businessman continues laughing with his associates, and Mr. Prince then smiles]
Mr. Prince: I'm hopeful. That's right, I'm full of hope! And I love a rose!
[The Businessman and his men laughed hard]
Mr. Prince: And she loves me, and she's waiting for me! So... I don't think I wanna work for you anymore. [the Businessman and his men ignored and still laughed] And um... [removes his card from his shirt] ... I quit.
[The Businessman and his associates stop laughing, causing The Little Girl to laugh]
Mr. Prince: [laughs] I quit!
[Mr. Prince steps on his business card, while The Little Girl then steps on The Conceited Man's foot, freeing her, and the stuffed Fox steps on another man's foot gently, before the three start escaping]
