YMMV / The Little Prince (2015)

Go To

  • Adorkable: Mr. Prince (the grown up Little Prince), who is now an awkward and jittery young man compared to the ironically more mature boy he was before.
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: The Mother. It's implied that she went through her entire life unprepared and tries to prepare her daughter for Werth to the best of her ability. Despite her doing it the wrong way, The Little Girl doesn't mind the preparation at all and has no problem following the Life plan; when her mother leaves for work, she actually follows the Life Plan willingly and doesn't complain, until she comes across the paper airplane.

  • Awesome Music: The soundtrack consists almost entirely of Sweet Dreams Fuel thanks to composer Hans Zimmer along with the collaboration of famous French singer Camille, the latter of whom some may be familiar with thanks to Ratatouille. Special mention goes to "Turnaround", arguably the loveliest song in the entire soundtrack.
  • Broken Base:
    • Some are put off by the book basically only being backstory, with the movie's main plot taking place decades later and focusing on a Canon Foreigner.
    • The third act of the film, which serves as a kind of sequel to the book. Some feel its tone doesn't fit with the original story, others think it's a fitting conclusion to the film proper.
  • Funny Moments:
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The 2-D and stop-motion animated sections, with their gorgeous fidelity to the source material.
  • WTH, Casting Agency?: James Franco as the Fox raised a lot of eyebrows. Even better (worse?) because James Franco was also in Sausage Party, which also came out the same year.

How well does it match the trope?
