Rachel is voicing The Mother character and the voice-ensemble cast also includes Jeff Bridges, Mackenzie Foy, Albert Brooks, Paul Giamatti, Benicio Del Toro, James Franco, Marion Cotillard and Paul Rudd.

“The Little Prince turns out to be a respectful, lovingly reimagined take on Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s classic 1943 tale […] the film remains a consistent visual treat (the computer animation is more inspired in this section, with the grown-ups depicted as a colorless, zombified mass of tall, narrow bodies) and always echoes Saint-Exupery’s core theme of looking at the world through the hopeful, uncorrupted eyes of a child, where sometimes what appears to be a hat may in fact be a boa constrictor with an elephant inside.”
