One of the highest rated children’s movies on Netflix, the Little Prince is a fantastic Netflix original movie about a far too busy girl who becomes friends with a strange, yet friendly pilot who tells her a story about an odd child who lives on an asteroid and his adventures.

Although clearly different from anything we’re really used to in terms of children’s movies right now, the animation is great, as is the story. Interesting, engaging, and sweet, this movie is a must watch for anyone that owns Netflix – adults and children alike.

If this movie was more than just a Netflix original then it would have far more accolades, but the fact that movies of this quality are only on Netflix is a definite reminder of why your subscription is worthwhile.

The Little Prince’s 7.8 rating on IMDb and 4.6 Netflix rating are evidence of its likability, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself watching this fantastic movie more than just once.
