Astro Boy Voice Cast Announced!


I'm a big ol nerd. Don't care what you say. Astro Boy is teh awwsum...

I'm pretty stoked for this movie. Imagi Studios is producing, and I thought they did a fantastic job with the look of TMNT (that and I'm pals with "Donatello" so I'm a little biased lol), and I think that's exactly the kind of treatment a property like Astro Boy should get. I'm really happy they decided against a live action film. Unlike say, a certain Speedy film about a car Racer that may or may not have been recently released. has the scoop on all the voice actors:
Slated for worldwide theatrical release in 2009, "Astro Boy" will feature the voices of Academy Award®-winning actor Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, Nathan Lane, Bill Nighy and Eugene Levy with Freddie Highmore in the title role. David Bowers is directing ASTRO BOY from a screenplay written by Timothy Harris, with Maryann Garger producing.
I have to say, that cast looks pretty great. David Bowers is an ... interesting choice to direct (I'm pretty sure his last film was Flushed Away), and I'm curious to see how he handles action.

Astro Boy Rawks!
I'm really looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

I'm SUCH a nerd...


  1. Astro Boy looks like it will be good. And better than all the hype surrounding Speed Racer. I guess I might as well admit, I am a nerd too.

  2. Usually I say I'm a geek, cuz then I can say witty things like "for the geek shall inherit the earth" or "I'm more geek-chic".

    If we're going to come together as nerds we'll need some kind of battle cry.

    Nerds ASSEMBLE!


    I'll keep working on it.
