The Little Prince has a princess for a fan !


Anamaria Vartolomei is only 12 years old yet already she has acted alongside Isabelle Huppert in the film My Little Princess. In an interview for Elle magazine this week, she reveals her cultural preferences.

Her literary favourites include Susie Morgenstern, Molière and… The Little Prince!


Tell us about your tattoos!


The Little Prince is a literary and popular phenomenon. We soon realised that many friends of the Little Prince have acquired tattoos inspired by Saint-Exupéry’s drawings! If you have a Little Prince inked on your skin, or know someone else who has, send us a photo of the tattoo and, if possible, what prompted you/the wearer to choose the Little Prince. Behind a tattoo, there is often a fascinating story. Tell us your story and send it, with a photo, to renard@lepetitprince.com


The Little Prince: coming soon to La Défense…


The summer holidays are coming to an end, but there’s still something to smile about: on 24 September, the Grande Arche de la Défense will be the backdrop for a son et lumière show directed by Joseph Couturier.

The show was first staged in 2000, to mark the 100th anniversary of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s birth. Now it’s back, in a new production. The Little Prince and his planets are brought to life with pyrotechnics and video and laser technology. French actor Pierre Arditi provides the narration for this spectacular event.

Meeting with a fan!


Virgil Tanase is a writer and theatre director. Well-versed in the works of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, he has also written a stage adaptation of the Little Prince.

If you’ve been wondering about Saint-Exupéry’s posthumously published literary testament Wisdom of the Sands or the meaning of The Little Prince, then this interview is for you. Have a good weekend !


When you enter this “Little Prince” attraction…
