‘Astro Boy Reboot’ TV Series Debuts New Poster

A new poster has arrived for “Astro Boy Reboot,” the upcoming television revival produced by Tezuka Productions, Shibuya Productions and Caribara Animation.

Announced in June 2014, the 26-episode series will blend CG and traditional 2D animation for a story aimed at viewers ages 8 to 12. As you can tell from the poster, the show will boast contemporary designs in a present-day setting, and will feature of mix of old and new characters and elements.

Created by the legendary Osamu Tezuka, Astro Boy was introduced in a manga series published from 1952 to 1968. The story of the boy robot has been adapted several times over the decades, most famously in 1963. A 2009 CG-animated film grossed just $44 million worldwide. It was announced last month that New Line Cinemas has partnered with Animal Logic, Ranger 7 Films and Tezuka Productions to produce an “Astro Boy” live-action feature.

“Astro Boy Reboot” doesn’t yet have a U.S. distributor.
