The Little Prince is a very touching and sweet film for children and adults alike. This film follows the beautiful story of a little girl who moves next to an old man, an aviator, who tells interesting stories about a prince he met in the desert. The girl is so captivated by the stories of her new friend that she is distracted from the "life plan" that her mother makes for her. The aviator teaches the girl a very important message, "Growing up is not so much the problem, the problem is to forget." This movie is rich with adventurous and exciting scenes, there is not a single boring moment. It reminds us of when we were a child with great imaginations and we are touched by it’s nostalgic atmosphere.

This is a really excellent film (I may have given it five stars, but since it was ultimately derivative, I concluded that it must be less than perfect, so four and half), very touching, at times funny, and narratively structured (its a meta-story over the original story) in a sophisticated way: its a children's film that adults should watch.

A beautiful adaptation of the book. It's a story within a story. "That which is essential is invisible to the eye. It can only be seen by the heart."

Olivier d'Agay, author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's grand nephew and spokesman for the Saint-Exupery estate, said in an email to Los Angeles Times in January 2016: "The movie is extremely faithful to the book. The story of the little girl, her friendship with the aviator, her conflict with her mother, [illustrate] the place of children today in a tough world of competition and solitude. It's why the two stories are really well linked. This is the originality and the genius of that movie: to show that the magic and the power of the book is still operating today."

A beautiful film. Has a slightly happier ending than the book.

I've been excited to see this movie since seeing some of the characters in a exhibition. This movie not only uses the source, but a framing story of a little girl. The movie is great offering some great narrative and a great score. I hope more people get a chance to see it since there were many problems with distribution and marketing for this movie.

The Saint-Exupery story is told within another interesting tale about a lonely French girl. Great animation and music. Perhaps not for very young children but otherwise will entertain everyone.
