Two Princes: Part Two

After Paramount Pictures' 1974 version of The Little Prince seemingly vanished into thin air, it would be decades before another big screen version would come around. 

That version would be fully animated, with a voice cast that included Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, Benicio Del Toro, James Franco, Ricky Gervais, Paul Giamatti and Marion Cotillard. But Paramount abruptly abandoned plans to release the film, and in this episode, The Little Prince director Mark Osborne explains what he thinks went wrong.

Plus, Patrick Oliver Jones of the Why I'll Never Make It podcast talks to the makers of the new Broadway version of The Little Prince that just opened last week.
