Based Upon: The long-running and popular Japanese manga (comic book) and TV anime (animation) series created by Osamu Tezuka (1928-1989). The original Japanese title of the Manga ("Tetsuwan Atom") translates to English as "Mighty Atom." The manga comic book was first published by Tezuka in 1951, which he continued to write and draw for another 20+ years. There were two "AstroBoy" TV shows: a 168-episode black and white series in the early/mid 1960s and a color series in the early 1980s. (3/21/03) There is a new "Tetsuwan Atom" TV series which will make its Japanese premiere there on April 6th, 2003. (5/6/03) That new Japanese TV series will air on the WB in the 2003-2004 season.

Premise: When his son dies, a scientist creates a powerful robot boy, Astro Boy, to be his replacement. Intended to be his own personal secret, Astro Boy ends up using his extraordinary abilities (flight via jet-powered boots, strength, invulnerability, lasers that shoot out of his fingers, super-hearing, etc.) to become a world-famous superhero. And the hero arrives in the spotlight just in time, as an evil alien race soon starts to invade Earth, with Astro Boy our only protection...

Filming: (10/6/06) Imagi Animation Studios has apparently begun preliminary production of this CGI project, with a target release in three years (2009).

Genre: Action, Animated, Based on a Book, Eye Candy, Kids, Science Fiction, Superhero

Imagi did a great job with TMNT, their CGI was Pixar caliber and that is saying a lot.

This has potential of being amazing.

Does anyone know if Atlas will be in it? Or Blue Knight? Who will the villains be?

Teehee, Atlas is my favourite character... :heart:

Should be obvious by my user, though. :D X-D

Welcome Daichi! :)

I don't know, but it seems to me that Astro without any well known vilain wouldn't be Astro. Even if the plot is totally new, to me it wouldn't make sense not to include some of the usual characters in some way or another.

I would think the infernal robots in an apocalyptic setting....
Pluto and the other robot named after the old underworld hades powers...
You know "The Cosmic Divine" the struggle against the antigood. The powers of darkness. Ignorance... The enemy that Astro was designed to fight. Not by Tenma but by Tezuka. The prescribed iconography of the Astro icon against the robotic iconography of ultimate daemonic evil programmed with a Nazilike scheme. :ninja:

I hope Tenma will apear reading the websites it wont have Atlas in it, IMG said all there movies like Astro boy and TMNT will be a new story based AFTER the orginal series ending so, the story will take place after the last episode of the new Astro boy series.
It will be about Aliens.

"Astro, you must exceed the limitations that humans cannot!
You must be go beyond nationality, ethnicity,
pilosophy, and religion,
starvation and poverty,
and war!
Exceed these limitations created by man!
You must fly high! Higher than any human has ever flown before!
To reach for the future that no human has been able to so far!"

LOOK, KIDS! NEW CONCEPT ART! Read here...

However, it looks overwhelmingly similar to Ken Steacy's art, which worries me.
