While I did initially have a momentary hallucinatory thought that James Franco was voicing the little prince himself, thankfully he is not. That honor, in the English language version belongs to Riley Osborne, a young actor director Mark Osborne worked with on Kung Fu Panda. A female, Andrea Santamaria is doing the French voice over. Since this is an animated film, the French version is being done by some of the creme de la creme of French cinema.
Voila! Marion Cotillard is the voice of the Rose in both the French and English language versions while Vincent Cassell is the Renard to James Franco's Fox.
Jeff Bridges is our crusty voiced Aviator to Andre Dussollier's L'aviateur.
The little girl is voiced by Mackenzie Foy who you may remember from Interstellar as the young daughter, Murph, that Matthew McConaughey's astronaut left behind. In the French version she's voiced by Clara Poincaré.
Rachel McAdams and Florence Foresti voice the mother/la mere. The remaining cast includes Paul Rudd, Paul Giamatti, Benicio del Toro, Albert Brooks, and Bud Cort with Guillaume Gallienne, Laurent Lafitte and Vincent Lindon filling out the French cast.
Here are both trailers. Regardez-vous.
