“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.
