SDCC: ‘Astro Boy’s Kristen Bell and Freddie Highmore

Among the upcoming films on display here at Comic Con is Astro Boy, based on the popular Japanese manga series. From Todd’s recent report on Astro Boy footage: “Astro Boy is based on Osamu Tekuza’s 1952 manga, which was developed into a television series in 1963 and subsequently enjoyed multiple incarnations and reinventions in print and on film. The 2009 feature film promises to stay largely faithful to the sleek and simple design of the character, but with a few updates to his look and his mythology. As the second film from burgeoning animation studio Imagi after 2007’s TMNT, Bowers said that he wanted to make sure that the story was both fun and substantive.

Cinematical caught up with Kristen Bell, Freddie Highmore, director David Bowers and producer Maryann Garger and spoke to them about the film, the fanbase, the voice work and a whole lot more.
