Mackenzie Foy Talks ‘The Little Prince’ Journey And Lasting Memories

 

Opening August 5 in select theaters and on Netflix, The Little Prince is an adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s transcendent tale of adventure, love, and family. Director Mark Osborne, best known for his 2008 feature Kung Fu Panda, crafts this adaptation with a modern day spin, as a little girl (Interstellar’s Mackenzie Foy) befriends her next door neighbor (Jeff Bridges), a retired aviator who refuses to grow up.

As he weaves the tale of “the little prince,” the girl is caught up in this completely new universe, and suddenly the stars shine ever so bright in her life and in her boundless imagination. This stop-motion animated feature, which also features the voice talents of Rachel McAdams (as the girl’s mother) and Riley Osborne as the titular character, took over four years to make. The movie is a visual feast that’s also filled with resonant storytelling – please watch this movie on the big screen or at least a nice sized screen just to appreciate the flick’s gorgeous compositions!

Unfortunately, I’m not a filmmaker and I apologize for the shaky iPhone video below. But here are my two questions to Mackenzie Foy as she talks about her journey on The Little Prince:
