Astroboy the movie ( Sticky? )

Postby Hikari Tail » Sun Sep 30, 2007 5:42 pm

Shouldn't we have a sticky for the Astroboy movie tread?
we can discuss all the rumors the reason why it keeps getting delayed it its a live action or good thing its a CGI voice actors ect and possible story line, and off course will the movie be a bit dark and mature or becoming for children only?
Will it stick true to Tezuka's Astro boy or will it be made to something complenty different
Will there be new movie only characters?

anyway i found this new Astroboy Movie poster at least the blog claimed its a new poster teaser for the 2009 Astroboy movie

What is the source of the article? I really appreciate sharing, but this is copyrighted material. Perhaps you should give us the publication data and a small excerpt rather than the whole thing.

It's from the official site of the company that is working on the feature film.

I just hope they give Astro a suitable voice. That, and they don't make every other character look insane. [Anybody else remember what Master Splinter looked like in TMNT?]

I don't know if this thread should be a sticky, but it's not a bad idea as many people could come here to find information about this.

That said, personally I tend to not notice new posts in sticky threads after a while because they are always at the top. :unsure:

Maybe we could let this thread here while it's active, and when it goes down, then we'll see. What do my fellow admins think? :)

I've never heard of it, but what do you mean by "look insane"? Physically, psychologically or both?

I remember we had a discussion a while ago and somebody remarked that the characters in Astroboy looked somewhat outdated in comparison to the characters in the latest cartoon. I wouldn't mind if there was a bit of change in that department. I'm used to the characters as they are so it's also fine with me if there is no change. :)

The interview sounds interesting (thanks for sharing). It looks promising so far. :D

I think the characters must stay the same to retain any faithfulness to the original. Why cast Duke Red as Tenma or Tawashi as Ochanmizu? It would just add confusion if they changed them enough to make them unrecognizable. It took me a while to figure out who was whom in the live-action version, & that was bad enough, but understandable. Keep the characters the same, & include plenty of cameos. :astro:

Well the character design looks great so far just looking at the interview sheet and those other robots have a Ken Stacy kind of look to them.
