The film is admirable for its gentle hand when it comes to difficult subjects like the ephemeral nature of life, and its bold visual style, but it's also a film whose final reel seems unwilling to recognize the realities of its own story.

If Saint-Exupry offered readers a petite, queer-tasting square of some delicate cake they'd never heard of, Netflix has served up a familiar, fragrant, well-balanced meal.

The Little Prince should make a compelling, if not always fully incisive, case for clinging to the lessons of youth.

The animation is gorgeous, with contemporary home life scenes in CGI and the world of The Little Prince in stunning stop-motion design.
August 6, 2016
Saint-Exupery's core themes are never lost despite the contemporary context; rather they are enhanced by the Aviator's memories and the Little Girl's fresh experiences.

The classic scenes redone gave me chills; the new stuff made me facepalm.
August 6, 2016
...one of the most inspired, delightful animations of the year.
August 6, 2016
Though it takes liberties with the source material, The Little Prince enriches the novella on which it is based, developing its themes and characters into one of the best animated releases of the year.

Just lovely and poignant and all the other adjectives that make one's heart swell.

No child, or adult, for that matter, will be able to resist the considerable charm of The Little Prince.

Director Mark Osborne [achieves] some charming effects... But the computer-animated portions that function as a real-world framing device are more tedious than fanciful.

The Little Prince depends on its viewers' willingness to go along with twee flutterings like "The stars are beautiful because of a flower that cannot be seen." I'm too much of an adult to swallow that saccharine bilge, I guess.
August 5, 2016
It's a film with charm and sweetness, but for me is structurally encumbered by this new present-day narrative level: the smarter, zappier modern animated style makes the marionette-style images of the past look a bit low-octane and quaint.
August 5, 2016
Osborne respects the integrity of the original story in this charming adaptation.
August 5, 2016
Beautifully and expressively animated, The Little Prince basically is the story of an old man who still acts like a kid and a kid who's being programmed to be an "essential" cog in the grand industrial, soul-deadening scheme of things.
August 5, 2016
The Little Prince is a beautiful tribute to a timeless book.
August 5, 2016
Lovely, slow, nostalgic and a bit over-rated.
August 5, 2016
It's part-adaptation, part fan-fiction, part update. But it doesn't forsake the original.
August 5, 2016
Animated take on classic tale is sweet but restrained.
August 5, 2016
A delight for children and adults alike until it sadly spirals out of control in its overly ambitious finale.
