The computer animated, movie version of the popular, classic cartoon series Astro Boy has it’s lead. Imagi Studios told us tonight that they’ve hired Freddie Highmore to provide Astro Boy’s voice.
I know there are a lot of people out there with an attachment to this character, but to be honest I’m only reporting on it because it’s a robot, and let’s face it I’m obviously a sucker for anything automaton related. Just look at the site. However I somehow missed out on this particular phenomenon. Apparently it’s an anime riff on the old Pinocchio theme.
