New High Res Photos from Imagi's Astro Boy

A fews week ago we posted two new photos from Astro Boy, the upcoming animated movie from Imagi Animation. Today we've got three more new high res photos to debut. I actually wanted to share these today because it gives me somewhat of an excuse to talk about how my mind was changed after seeing a full Astro Boy scene at the New York Comic Con a few weeks ago. The scene we were shown was the full version of the scene where Astro Boy first learns that he can fly. It was edited down to make up the teaser trailer which I really didn't like at the time. However, seeing it in its entirety, I'll admit that I was very impressed.

The scene didn't have finished CGI, since as we all know, Imagi shut down for a few weeks, but watching the complete progression of the scene and Astro Boy's emotions when he first learns how to fly, was actually very impressive. It was the kind of footage that I've been waiting to see and it completely changed my mind. Hopefully we get to see some more from Astro Boy soon. In the meantime, check out the new photos.

Set in futuristic Metro City, AstroBoy 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.

Astro Boy is directed by ex-Disney animator David Bowers, of Flushed Away previously, with a screenplay written by Timothy Harris, of Brewster's Millions, Kindergarten Cop, and Space Jam previously. Imagi Animation, the studio behind TMNT last year, is developing this animated film which is based on Osamu Tezuka's manga series. Astro Boy will arrive in theaters everywhere on October 23rd this year.

this is the first time i will get to see animation used properly. A movie that has alot of shit blowing up, rather thatn winning awards. Although the incredibles and wall E are good , i really just want something fun to watch.
