Variety reports that a new version of Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s classic children’s book, THE LITTLE PRINCE will be returning to TV. French studio Method Animation will be creating a new CG take on the story, and is also planning LITTLE PRINCE web platforms and video games.
“We were able to draw in strong international partners very early on because of the originality of the concept, the appeal of the franchise and also Soumache’s solid track record,” says Philippe Soutter, CEO of international sales company PGS Entertainment.
Method has a high bar to hurdle to create a new LITTLE PRINCE. Not only was the story created as a popular anime by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, but also an opera, a live action film, a stop-motion animation short, a musical, and a symphony.
