The Brazilian publisher Amarylis is releasing comics number 7 to 12 !
That means hours of reading and fun to come for the Brazilian readers !
The universe is in danger: the stars are going out one by one along the path of the Serpent. The Little Prince, determined not to let evil rule the galaxy, leaves his asteroid and his beloved Rose to embark on a monumental quest. Accompanied by his faithful friend Fox, he will discover vast worlds set off kilter by strange rules and dangerous strife and will use his extraordinary gifts to help bring balance to each planet.
Continuing on their journey farther and farther away from home, the Little Prince and Fox land on a peculiar planet where flying machines spread terror through the towns. The Amicopes are a very talkative people, but those disquieting machines, controlled by the overseer Sahara, stop them from speaking out by their taping their mouths shut! But how did the young man become such a tyrant? And is a revolution really the best solution?
On this broiling-hot desert planet, only carapodes—wondrous giant tortoises—can safely move around and deliver mail and resources to the lonely cities perched far apart on rocky ledges. And only one person, Arobase, can guide the carapodes. When he decides to leave them to fend for themselves, the whole world starts falling apart . . .
The Planet of the Giant is a very strange place. The planet itself is a stone giant, and each body part is managed by a different ruler. But ever since Talamus, the controller of the giant’s brain, stopped responding to messages and started giving crazy orders, nothing on the planet is working anymore.
Panic has broken out on the Planet of Trainiacs, where the only way to get around is by train! But the trains aren’t running on time anymore, and they aren’t getting to their final destination. Life in the community is topsy turvy! Has Hannibal, the railway switchman, gone crazy?
What’s happening on the Planet of Libris? Books have started flying away and disappearing! Who would want to prevent citizens from reading? The Little Prince investigates and discovers a story of romance and jealousy.
On this planet, two kingdoms are fighting over who gets to watch the sunset. One day, instead of fighting, they decide to play a game called Ludokaa. But the night before the big competition, the two communities are on the point of another battle.
These comics will be available in October.

To celebrate the 70 th anniversary of the Little Prince, the TV channel TéléQuébec set several operations with the Little Prince TV series
The channel has already met the little fans, at the Montréal Escales Improbables, where a huge participatory mural was made available to children.
But that’s not all: TéléQuébec began rebroadcasting the first two seasons of the animated series The Little Prince on September 14. Rendez-vous on Saturday and Sunday afternoons!.
In this series, The Little Prince, accompanied by his faithful friend Renard, have to save the world, and every planet, from the clutches of the vile Serpent. It is through his correspondence with his Rose that young viewers follow their adventures from planet to planet. Each is marked by the discovery of the diversity that makes the beauty of the universe.
TéléQuébec is pleased to join the Succession Antoine de Saint-Exupery to celebrate the anniversary of this bright-hearted Little Prince.
You now know that the little Prince is Hayao Miyazaki’s favorite book. What you may not know yet is that the director has proven its commitment to this masterwork several times, being involved in various projects.
Written in 2006 to accompany the album Drawings, watercolors, pastels, pens and pencils of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the preface of Hayao Miyazaki, is a treasure of emotion.
He did not know the author, who died when he was 3 years old. His emotion at this drawings comes from a meeting with « an exceptional person » meets « miraculous moments that crystallize in a visible form, the spirit of their author. »
Hayao Miyazaki portrays a « diamond. » « A rough stone that neither modes nor the turbulence of the times can not reach, does not age. »
It compares the Little Prince pilot, who « attempted to take off our star, and after many failures, many injuries, finally succeeded in the Mediterranean, to fulfill this desire. »
As a good creator of animated images, Hayao Miyazaki finishes his text describing a scene that seems to come to life in front of our eyes. Antoine de Saint-Exupery flying his Breguet 14 flies over the Canal du Midi to Alicante. We follow a machine whose wings are made of wood, cloth and wire. It beckons us to his cabin. His plane flies away, becoming smaller before disappearing.
« Initiating our descent into this world, we feel then, more clearly than before, his presence … ».
To ask the master to write this preface, he had to go meet him. In front of his small house, a « Deux Chevaux ». The director welcomes his guests wearing a beret. His reserved manners hide a deep affection for the work of Antoine de Saint-Exupery. He has already said he will never adapt the work of writer-pilot. There is nothing more to add to genius. The director is secret. He does not like the press, promotion, merchandising … But he agreed to preface this book of drawings by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, because this album allows you to see the diamond in the rough, no frills.
Up on the Hill
Aviation is a very present theme in his films. It is quite easy to see a connection with Antoine de Saint-Exupery. « Kaze Tachinu » his eleventh feature film, applauded after its screening at the Venice Film Festival, is already released this summer in Japan, where he met a great success.
It chronicles the life of an aeronautical engineer who actually existed, Jiro Horikoshi, designer of Mitsubishi « Zero » planes, flagship of the Japanese air force during the Second World War.
The little Jiro dreams of planes and draw inspiration from those of the Italian designer Italo Caproni. He can not become a pilot because of his myopia, so he joined the aerospace division of a famous multinational company in 1927 and became one of the most brilliant designers of the world. He falls in love with Nahoko, a young woman he met when he was a teenager, saving her life ….
His film, full of intense poetry and references or allusions to European culture, takes the viewer in a metaphor of life facing an uncertain future: « The wind rises, it must try to live » , repeats the hero in french, quoting Paul Valéry.
The Little Prince of the stars
The Little Prince, in Japanese: Oshino Ojisame (Prince of the stars), has strong ties with Japan. It is the country where many researchers worked on the Little Prince and its author. The country where, in Hakone, there is a museum is dedicated to Saint-Exupéry and his Little Prince, a restaurant « Le Petit Prince » and a dedicated shop.
The new Little Prince
And the Little Prince heard the affection of Hayao Miyazaki. In several of its many forms, we can feel the influence of the Japanese master.
This influence is particularly evident in the series of the Little Prince.
A few days ago, a special message landed in the mailbox of the Facebook page of The Little Prince.
The author, Alan Mayer is the purser on Europe Airpost airline.
I always thought it was natural and desirable that the Little Prince found, if not his planet, the universe that his father had loved: the Aeropostale. He is at home.
Indeed, Europe Airpost was still called Aeropostale few years ago … The Aeropostale is where Antoine de Saint-Exupéry made his classes. As the Europe Airpost pilots, he carried mail across the seas. If Antoine de Saint Exupéry was still with us today, he would be in charge of one of our Boeing 737. In fact we carry our passengers during the day and every night of the week, we remove all the 147 seats in each of our aircraft in just 20 minutes in order to load the French Post mail .
But Alan has found time between his travels, to board a special little passenger…
And now the Little Prince meets the aviator!
