The Sandbox roundup: Cultural icon The Little Prince experience in the metaverse
French media and entertainment producer Mediawan Kids & Family is collaborating with The Sandbox to bring a new experience based on its iconic character The Little Prince to the metaverse. Marking the 80th anniversary since the book’s first publication, The Little Prince immersive experience will be available to The Sandbox’ global audience.
President of Mediawan Kids & Family Julien Borde comments, “Kids & Families around the world dream with the Little Prince since 80 years and we are thrilled to explore new ways of storytelling to perpetuate Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s values and bring them to new audiences.”
Via its main label Method Animation, Mediawan Kids & Family has been working with the Saint-Exupéry-d’Agay estate for many years to adapt the world of The Little Prince to today’s audiences.
“Bringing The Little Prince – one of the most globally known cultural icons of our times – into The Sandbox open metaverse is a meaningful moment for me,” said COO and co-founder of The Sandbox Sebastien Borget.
