'The Little Prince' fox plush doll

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

littleprincefoxplush.jpgThe French 2015 animated feature of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince will be released in America by Paramount on March 16, 2016. Its associated merchandising includes a plushie of the book and film’s talking fox.

The illustrated announcements on Amazon.com imply that the plush fox is poseable. One shows it standing on two feet next to the film’s Little Girl. Another shows it on all four feet.

The latter is priced $80.00 marked down to $19.99. The former is $14.99, and the order is for both figures. A foreign imported fox, clearly a different plushie, is currently unavailable and unpriced.

If you want a plushie of a talking fox (but how will you know it’s supposed to be of a talking fox?), here you go.

A correction: (possible SPOILER warning!)

In the context of the movie, the plush fox does not talk (at least not in the French...don't know about the English dub). He IS anthropomorphic in that he (eventually) can walk around and help the girl. The talking fox from the original story does appear in the form of 2D flashback/storytelling narrated by the aviator, but this is not explicitly the same fox.

Also, as a "caveat emptor" warning to buyers, I believe the expressive shot of the fox in different poses on the Amazon page (not the one pictured in this story) is actually CG from the film. I don't think the plush fox is as well balanced. Though it would be pretty awesome if I'm wrong!

Well, I haven't seen the movie yet, in either French or English; and the fox is a pretty minor character in both the book and the movie. But, hey! anything to justify its inclusion in Flayrah.

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by the size of his role, especially in the second half of the movie. :)

I actually got mixed up - I have seen it in English and not French. You can find it online if you know where to look, as it was released outside the US last year. (I assume it would be frowned upon if I linked to it here.)
