"Astro Boy Reboot" Cast Featured in New Visual

For the first time, producers of new "Astro Boy" have the right to change the story

Back at 2014's Annecy Festival’s International Animation Film Market (MIFA), Monaco-based Shibuya Productions, Japan’s Tezuka Productions and France’s Caribara Animation announced plans for a new Astro Boy Reboot. The 2D/3D CG mix was planned for 26 half-hour episodes, and while Tezuka Pro continue to control the IP for TV anime's first hero, for the first time, producers of the new series have the right to create a completely new story. A new visual offers the latest look at this project.


When announced, Shibuya Productions founder Cedric Biscay explained that the new Astro Boy will be set in the present and boast a contemporary design, targeting new generations of kids. It will incorporate new characters and combine “positive things from the past version and new elements.”
