Astro Boy Hair Makeovers Offered at Comic-Con Int'l

From the producer of Madagascar, the director of A Shark's Tale and the studio that brought you The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comes the big screen versions of Astro Boy and Gatchaman, (a.k.a. Battle of the Planets). Both films are due out in theaters worldwide in 2009.

Imagi Studio's bang-zoom version of Osamu Tezuka's iconic robot boy seeks to reinvent Japan's most beloved cartoon character for Western audiences. Intriguingly, Yoshitaka Amano, the original character designer for Gatchaman will also be at Comic-Con. Coincidence? Mmmaybe.

Will these new versions soar to new heights or crash and burn? Drop by booth #3530 and see concept art from the film now in production and get a contact high from the possibilities.

"From the producer of Madagascar, the director of A Shark's Tale"

Not exactly high praise.

Hi Felix, is it possible for you to post the production art being shown at SDCC on your site?

And are there plans to show off anything Gatchaman related?

Director of Shark Tale? no, David Bowers co-directed Flushed Away.
Producer of Madagascar? no, Mayanne co-produced Flushed Away.
Get your story right and check your facts.
