“The Little Prince“, which is the first animated project Rachel was part of, is finally available in the United States starting today.

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 film, directed by Mark Osborne, an Oscar nominee for Kung Fu Panda, premiered out of competition at the Cannes Film Festival last May and has grossed $100 million intrnationally (excluding the U.K., Australia, Scandinavia and Spain), where it was handled by various distributors. Last month, it was awarded France’s Cesar Award for best animated film.

Paramount Pictures has confirmed to IGN that they will no longer release The Little Prince, which was set to open in theaters next Friday, March 18. The studio didn’t provide a reason for why they opted to drop the film so close to opening day.

Director Mark Osborne released the following statement (via his official twitter account):
“Many thanks to everyone for the outpouring of love and support in these strange times. As it turns out, the much anticipated U.S. release of this special and unique film will have to be anticipated just a little bit more. All I can say is ‘The Little Prince’ will in fact be released by another distributor later this year. Until then, head to Canada! The film opens there in wide release this weekend!”
