“Cedie, Ang Munting Prinsipe” revolves around the story of a young boy who discovers that he is the one and only heir to a British earldom. This then called him to leave the United States to live with his grandfather, The Earl of Dorincourt.
The Filipino film adaptation is based on the Japanese anime series “Little Lord Fauntleroy”.
A year after the film was released, the then 10-year-old Tom Taus was hailed as one of the nominees for Best Child Actor at the 1997 FAMAS Awards.
