Typically, CGI versions of beloved properties can make us wary, but there’s something lovely about this French-language teaser for Mark Osborne’s adaptation of The Little Prince

This teaser, sans subtitles, shows off the movie’s appealing mixture of CGI and stop-motion animation in the adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s famed novella. The movie’s framing device in which an older man tells the story of le petit prince to a young girl exists in CGI, while the prince is represented in stop-motion, which recalls the Saint-Exupéry’s indelible illustrations. The effect is visually stunning, and, based on the teaser’s soundtrack, appropriately melancholy.

Though this trailer is exclusively in French, the English-language voice cast includes Albert Brooks, James Franco, Jeff Bridges, and Rachel McAdams. If you’re not a French speaker, Vulture has a handy translation of the dialogue in the teaser.

The film is due out Oct. 7, 2015 in France.
