Director Mark Osborne describes to Vulture how he adapted Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince into an animated film:

“When you’re reading the book, you’re told over and over again in the text, ‘These drawings aren’t very good,’ and you’re actually being tricked into imagining the reality Saint-Exupéry was trying to depict,” says Osborne.“There’s a charm to those illustrations, and we wanted our stop-motion animation to be charming like they are: handcrafted, obviously the work of artists.”
