|Feeling a certain sense of déjà vu? Yes, that is indeed the Little Prince all dressed in his finest, in the same clothes Saint-Exupéry depicted in the story. For the TV series, the Little Prince’s long coat has been embellished with stars and shining symbols reminiscent of a constellation…
It’s all there, even the sword that, for the Little Prince, is first and foremost an instrument of creation for dealing with the problems posed by the snake and his dark ideas: like a paintbrush, the sword brings the Little Prince’s ideas to life.
If you look, you will notice that the stars on his epaulettes are the same as the ones Saint-Exupéry painted in his watercolours.
