McAdams' thrills for Little Prince

Rachel McAdams is excited about her role in The Little Prince

Rachel McAdams has revealed her excitement for The Little Prince film remake.

The About Time star is voicing one of the characters in the upcoming animated film alongside James Franco.

"I'm really excited about it. We're just starting out so I've seen some of the animation and it's just so beautiful," she said.

"It's a little bit of a modernisation but it's got tons of tributes to the book and to the drawings and to the world we expect the Little Prince to be."

Kung Fu Panda director Mark Osborne will direct the latest big-screen adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic children's book.

Oscar winners Jeff Bridges, Marion Cotillard and Benicio del Toro, as well as Paul Giamatti and Twilight actress Mackenzie Foy, are all rumoured to have voice parts in the movie.

"Mark Osborne is directing it - he did the first Kung Fu Panda - and he's awesome. He has all these brilliant ideas for it," Rachel continued.

"I love the messages in it - those are really strong and I think it will appeal to both adults and kids at the same time. I'm so looking forward to it," added the 34-year-old.

The book, which was published Le Petit Prince in 1943, has become a hit throughout the years and has been translated from French into dozens of languages.

Rachel stars in Richard Curtis' romantic drama About Time alongside Domhnall Gleeson and Bill Nighy, which is in cinemas now.
