Astro Boy Teaser Trailer

by Joey Paur

A teaser trailer for the CGI animated film 'Astro Boy' has hit the internet today, and it looks like it will be a lot of fun. The CGI was done by the same house that made the last 'Teenage Mutant Nija Turtles' movie.

Astro Boy was created by the 'god of manga,' Japan's Osamu Tezuka, in the early 1950s. The iconic character has since found wide popularity around the world as the hero of three acclaimed animated television series spanning the past four decades, besides being one of the top licensed properties for merchandising.

Set in futuristic Metro City, Imagi Studios' Astro Boy is about a young robot with incredible powers created by a brilliant scientist to replace the son he has lost. Unable to fulfill the grieving father's expectations, our hero embarks on a journey in search of acceptance, experiencing betrayal and a netherworld of robot gladiators, before he returns to save Metro City and reconcile with the man who had rejected him.

Check out the trailer below,
