    I'm not a fan, but at the very least it looks like him, so they got that right.

    Edit: Personally I'll be giving it a chance before deaming it good or bad, just like I do with almost all the movies I've ever heard of (the Dragonball "movie" is an exception, which is instant fail, imho).

    It's by the same team handled the last TMNT movie, I believe they're also working on Gatchaman.

    I have faith in those guys.

    Never saw the original anime or manga, but all I know is that my little boy and I are so there.

    This, along with Gatchaman are Imagi's pet projects. They're massive Astroboy fans. Believe me, if anyone can get this right, it's these guys.

    I love where he's digging underground. Looks just like something out of the cartoon. lol

    I think many anime and superhero movies could benefit from being all CG look at how well the Increadibles turned out.

    Ahh so things have come full circle finally, i never really watched much Astro Boy but that short trailer looks kinda nice.

    I have to say it must suck to be a Voice Actor in America, you can get popular up to a point but when a big time CG movie comes along? Nope we're gonna hire big names and cast Nicholas Cage to play Nicholas Cage. Sorry guy that actually has a vocal range.

    I have faith in this. These guys did a great job with TMNT. I'll give it a shot.


    Plus I love the concept of Astro Boy =)

    Let's face the facts: this movie will KILL Transfo-... Astroboy.





    Looks good, I really liked TMNT too. And seeing that Kristen Bell is doing a voice only makes me happier.

    The shot of him speed-punching through the ground with his robot headlights on makes me think they really know what they are doing.

    From what the trailer shows, they've got the look for him damn near perfect - I'll be waiting impatiently for this one!

    Also, Gatchaman... About damn time someone took that up!

    Would you have preferred him have the Megaman helmet on?

    Looks good to me. I loved that new AstroBoy anime they showed early in the decade on CN.
