New Animated Version Of 'Le Petit Prince' To Feature Eco Themes

The much loved French novella Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is being made into an animated version for television. Only this time, it’s with an eco twist. The character will now be “an ambassador for sustainable development.” The 3D animated series will debut on France 3 on Christmas.

Le Petit Prince was not one of my childhood favorites, so I can’t comment on whether or not this eco minded change is an affront to the source material. This guy at The Telegraph sure thinks it’s a bad choice. However, inserting socially responsible themes into children’s programming is often an admirable move. Kids connect to the characters and want to emulate them. From there, you get tiny eco warriors who grow up to be caring green adults.

For now, the trailer only seems to be available in French, but you can view it here. Perhaps an English translation will come out eventually on dvd.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.
