Gorgeous 'Astro Boy Reboot' TV Series Teaser Trailer Lands
The first teaser shows that the production will look very different from the earlier incarnations' classic anime aesthetic. It's looking rather gorgeous in fact, with a lush style that modernises the visuals, while still paying homage to Astro/Atom's iconic look. The new series will employ both CG and 2D animation and is expected to run for an initial 26 episodes. No broadcasters have been announced for the US or UK as yet, but the 2003 series previously aired on Cartoon Network and the BBC. It was also announced earlier this year that Astro Boy will return to the big screen in a adaptation being produced by Animal Logic, the Australian company behind The Lego Movie.
Watch the teaser for the new series below.
