Kristen Bell Says Astro Boy Has a "Green" Message
Aug 4, 2009 by ReelzChannel.com

After viewing Imagi Animation Studios' unfinished footage of Astro Boy at the San Diego Comic-Con, we had the opportunity to sit down and chat with actress Kristen Bell, who provides the voice of Cora, a character created just for the Astro Boy movie. Bell, famous for her roles on Veronica Mars and Heroes, said, "I saw the movie a couple nights ago and I loved it."

(Astro Boy was constructed by Dr. Tenma (voiced by Nicolas Cage), a war-machine engineer who built him in the image of his late son, Toby.)

(In this image from the 1963 cartoon show, Astro Boy zips through the air while Dr. Elefun watches in amazement. In its native Japan, the character is as iconic as Mickey Mouse.)

Now Astro Boy is coming back. Imagi Animation Studios is putting the final touches on an animated movie premiering Oct. 23 — and the trick now is reminding the Astro-less generation who he is.

"I hope the fact that he's been away for so long makes our movie seem fresher and newer," says director David Bowers (Flushed Away). "Still, we're looking back to see what's come before to learn from it and draw upon it. I hope people who are nostalgic for the old show will really get a kick out of seeing Astro again. And for kids who haven't seen it, he's just a kid like them, but with rockets for boots and cannons for arms. He's really like a junior Iron Man."

Imagi president Erin Corbett says the Astro Boy presentation at San Diego's Comic-Con on Thursday will be crucial for reigniting the little robot's engine. The studio also is trying to capitalize on his retro status, since uncool can be very cool these days. "There is that underground feel that is helping us with adults and teens," she says. ...
