Indeed a masterpiece with its extent and worth going beyond the lifetime of any existence.

Khalil Gibran’s iconic book “The Prophet” is one of the biggest sellers in history, exceeding 100 million copies in over 40 languages since it was first published in 1923.

“The Prophet” will feature in another adaptation, this time as an animated film written and directed by Roger Allers is on track for completion in spring of 2014, with  Liam Neeson and Salma Hayek in the voice cast.

While it is not confirmed that children are the target audience of the expected animated version of “The Prophet”, (read Animations are not for Children) we can only aspire that with the adaptation of Gibran’s writings and words of wisdom in animations there is a powerful mean to convey values key ingredients to the young minds.
