Quick Summary~

A little girl and her mom move into a neighborhood next to an eccentric old guy. The duo has one goal: the little girl must get into the academy so she can become a perfect adult. While mom is at work, the little girl studies completing her tasks displayed on a giant board precisely at the time indicated. That is until a plane part crashes into her living room. The eccentric old guy (aviator) apologies and pays for the damages. Somehow the little girl finds herself in the aviator’s yard and somehow, they become friends. He tells her the story of the little prince and she experiences childhood for the first time.

Eventually, mom finds out and forbids their friendship. The aviator’s health declines and he goes to the hospital. Desperate, the little girl rushes off to find the little prince and she does. Find the cast here.

The story

  • You left your planet over a girl?! 
  • If you’re so smart do you not know socialization is crucial for development?
  • Oh that’s so cool, glow in the dark paint
  • I wasn’t expecting profound intimacy quotes from this movie 
  • The old man is gonna die. Wording it like taking a trip doesn’t pull the wool over my eyes
  • Oof 
  • The music really helps add to the story 
  • Did you really have to take away her fox
  • And in those 2 weeks old man dies…nm

If you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world.

The Little Prince

Search and rescue

  • Not the stars!
  • Her first friend is dying and you are still focused on the academy. Priorities.
  • Watching others go through grief is hard, it’d be hard to know what to do or say
  • I love your Rube Goldberg set up
  • Mr. Fox, you gotta keep your hands and arms inside the moving vehicle
  • It’s hat guy
  • Your defining flaw allowed for an escape 
  • If the fox doesn’t like them, no Buenos
  • I remember something like that in molly moon. Definitely didn’t creep me out. 
  • The little girl committed murder
  • Coffee didn’t break the machine but a bowling ball did🤣🤣
  • Fox is the best
  • Free the stars!
  • I noticed the stars were in a snow globe 
  • You can’t see the light of the sun if you don’t make it through the night. The feeling of loss isn’t forever. Being tamed is worth it.
