Movie Quote(s):
  • Astro Boy: I was made ready
  • Dr. Tenma: We have to go. Astro Boy: This is it. This is what I was created for. This is my destiny. Dr. Tenma: Toby, now! Astro Boy: I'm sorry but this is who I am. Onward and upward... Dad.
  • Astro Boy: [to Dr. Elefun] You know, I tried to find my place in the world. I - I thought I found it, but I guess fitting in can be a lot more complicated than it seems, huh?
  • Astro Boy: What? I got machine guns... in my butt?
Movie Trivia:
  • The original cartoon of Astro Boy (or "Mighty Atom" in Japanese) was first seen on Japanese television from 1963 to 1966 as 'Astroboy (1963)' which is credited as the first anime cartoon. The character of Astro Boy first appeared in print as a manga in 1952 by Osamu Tezuka. Another Astro Boy series was remade in the 1980s and again in the 21st century.
  • Scarlett Johansson was set to voice Cora but was (for unknown reasons) replaced by Kristen Bell.
  • Towards the end of the teaser trailer we see a man in a red cap and glasses with a big nose as Astroboy flies by. This is the frequent self-caricature of Osamu Tezuka.
  • The Japanese release of the movie uses the original character model of Astro Boy, maintaining the original bodyform, facial features, and hairstyle rather than the updated character model. The differences can be noted in a comparison between the U.S. and Japanese trailers for the movie.
  • Entertainment news reports in late January, 2009 stated that production had appeared, at the time, to have shut down, possibly due to the recession.
