Why Is the ‘Astro Boy’ Film Not Anime? Why?
So, the “Astro Boy” trailer is out, and I can’t pretend to be happy about this totally misconceived Pixar knockoff. You’d think that the most famous manga of all time might be a pretty good candidate to become, say, an amazing anime movie by Miyazaki rather than yet another iteration of the “Toy Story” CGI, but apparently you would be wrong.
You wanna go see the trailer? Fine, go see the stupid trailer. I’ll just be here watching the 1962 black and white “Astro Boy” live action movie instead. It’s roughly as enjoyable, and at least it didn’t cast Nicolas Cage as Dr. Tenma.
