“The Little Prince” Production moving to Montreal

It was announced earlier this year that Rachel signed on to voice a character in the upcoming 3D Animated movie adaption of “The Little Prince” (“Le Petit Prince”). Rachel previously mentioned herself that she was expected to do voice-over for the movie in New York but it looks like the production is moving to Montreal, Canada.

The Little Prince, based on the beloved book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, is a CG/Stop-Mo Animated Feature Film directed by Mark Osborne (Director, “Kung Fu Panda”) with Production Design by Lou Romano (Production Designer, “The Incredibles”) and Character Design by Peter de Seve (Character Designer, “Ice Age”). It is being produced by Onyx Films and animated at Mikros Image Canada in Montreal.

Mikros Image is a world leader in computer animation post-production and visual effects. With studios in France, Belgium and Canada. Mikros provides animation and vfx services to over 300 productions a year. In 2010, “Logorama,” produced and animated, at Mikros won the Academy Award® for Best Short Animated Film. Mikros Image Canada is proud to be bringing the classic tale of “The Little Prince” to life.

The production company is currently looking for various team members from August until September 2014 so that probably means the movie won’t get released before that time.
