“The Big Problem with The Little Prince” is that more people haven’t actually read the book before creating, drawing and/or highlighting potentially shady conclusions. Reading the original story that inspired the film created ~75 years later adds much needed perspective.

Films inspired​ by the written word hardly ever do the original work justice. The cartoon adaptation of “The Little Prince” was not immune to this oft-inaccurate translation. The most glaring issue, however, seems to stem from the addition of an innocent storyline which included a precocious little girl and the benefits of kindness shown to a cranky, lonely, elderly man.

This ”review"(?) serves as proof that if you look hard enough- really, really look- you can always find the narrative you’re looking for. Good or bad.
