I am really esctatic when I read the paper quite recently and got to know there will be a movie version of Astro boy!! Hooray!! Why?
Ah Boy loves Astro boy!!
I used to glue myself in front of the black and white idiotbox to watch Astro boy in the 70’s. It was really my real favourite cartoon character.
Astro Boy is a cartoon series set in a futuristic world wherein androids co-exist with humans. Its focus is on the adventures of the titular “Asto boy”, a powerful boy robot created by the head of the Ministry of Science, Dr Tenma, to replace his son Tobio, who died in a car accident.
Dr. Tenma built Astro in Tobio’s image and treated him as lovingly as if he were the real Tobio, but soon realized that the little android could not fill the void of his lost son.Tenma rejected Astro and sold him to a cruel circus owner, Hamegg.
After some time, the new head of the Ministry of Science, noticed Astro Boy performing in the circus and convinced Hamegg to turn Astro over to him. He then took Astro as his own and treated him gently and warmly, becoming his guardian.
He soon realized that Astro was gifted with superior powers and skills, as well as the ability to experience human emotions.
Astro then is shown fighting crime, evil, and injustice. Most of his enemies were robot-hating humans, robots gone berserk, or alien invaders
Cant wait. cant wait.
