“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 movie had an unconventional release schedule. After it’s world premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival it was released internationally in many countries, including France and Brazil. The movie already hit the 100 million mark in the international box office. Paramount dropped the movie (unexpectedly) earlier this year but Netflix picked up the right for the US. Deadline is reporting that Netflix is planning on an Oscar campaign later this year.
Netflix has announced that “The Little Prince” will be released on August 5 in the U.S. on their streaming service. The movie will also get a theatrical release, according to Entertainment Weekly. Netflix also released a brand new trailer. We have added the trailer and a newly released Japanese featurette in our media archive. We also added the high definition screencaptures in our gallery.

Screenwriter James Coyne has been tapped to pen a rewrite of Sherlock Holmes 3.

Ritchie/Wigram Productions, Team Downey, Silver Pictures, Dan Lin and Warner Bros are producing it.
According to Deadline Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and director Guy Ritchie will return. No word yet if Rachel or other cast members will join.

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!”
The movie won the César Award (French equivalent of the Academy Awards) for Best Animated Film last month and already hit the $100 million mark in the international box office.
