Netflix has rescued animated film 'The Little Prince' by picking up the rights to it.
Production company Paramount dropped the film, which was supposed to be released on March 18th. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has picked up the rights and will stream the film, though a release date is yet to be confirmed.
UK fans are as much in the dark as their US counterparts. On these shores, the Weinstein Company will handle its cinema release, though as yet there's no release date.
It was released in cinemas in France last year.
The film is based on the novella by Antoine De Saint-Exupery, first published in 1943. The book is the fourth most-translated in the world and in France was voted the best book of the 20th century.
Directed by Mark Osborne, the film uses stop-motion animation, and stars the voices of Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, Mario Cotillard and James Franco, among others.
It's the most successful French animated film abroad of all time.
