Created with breathtaking computer animation the film Astro Boy is a thrilling tale of a true hero. The film is set to debut in theaters on October 23, 2009.

Embarking on a journey in search of acceptance, Astro Boy encounters many other colorful characters along the way. Through his adventures, he learns the joys and emotions of being human, and gains the strength to embrace his destiny.


But when he learns his friends and family are in danger, Astro Boy marshals his awesome super powers and returns to Metro City in a valiant effort to save everything he cares about and to understand what it means to be a hero.
