Set in futuristic Metro City, Imagi’s “Astro Boy” tells the story of a young robot created by a scientist to replace the son he lost. Unable to fulfill the grieving father’s expectations, Astro Boy embarks on a journey of discovery before he returns to save Metro City and reconcile with his creator.
If you aren’t familiar with Highmore, you might want to head down to your local theater and check out the Spiderwick Chronicles.
I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Astro Boy for years. On the one hand, I love the early AB series from the 60s, but hate the reboot stuff that came out a few years ago.
