Report from WonderCon

Sci Fi Wire brings us the details on the Summit Entertainment panel at WonderCon this past weekend, where a clip from the upcoming CG animated Astro Boy movie from Imagi was screened. Basically it was the same clip that played at NYCC a month earlier.

The clip began with Astro Boy falling (apparently out of a window), plummeting quickly toward Earth. As he falls, flames shoot out of his feet. He has a bit of difficulty adjusting to his new power but quickly masters it (it will remind you of the scene from Iron Man when he first tries out his suit). He flies all over town, the flames from his feet cooking an underdone steak at a restaurant. As he bursts through the clouds (in a scene that recalls another superhero film about a man in a cape) and revels in his new ability, he says, "Wow! This is cool! I have to show Dad."
