The Little Prince may be the best animated feature in 2016

I am well aware that most of my readers do not subscribe to streaming services for movies, but perhaps you ought to consider making the move in the near future; I estimate that only about 10% of the films currently being produced will make their way to the multiplex screens.  If you are at all interested in anything beyond big budget spectacles, comic book franchises, and frat boy comedies, you need to upgrade your home Wi-Fi and begin streaming movies at home.

Case in point: The Little Prince.

This lovely film may be the best animated feature in 2016. It won the César Award (France’s Academy Award) for Best Animated Film and earned over $100 million internationally. It features an all-star voice cast including Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams and Paul Rudd. Paramount Pictures purchased distribution rights after the movie was screened at the Cannes Film Festival but then decided to do nothing. Netflix came to the rescue, so there you have it. If you want to see The Little Prince you need to have Netflix.
