Astro Boy Movie Japanese Trailer

Here is the final trailer for the Japanese release of the CG animated Astro Boy movie from Imagi. Whether you speak the language or not, the trailer is pretty clear and easy to follow, and really makes the movie look great. You can tell that the Japanese marketing is more focused on the story instead of the action. Be warned, however, because seeing this trailer after seeing the English trailer might just give away a lot of the movie! Watch out for spoilers!

The Japanese release features the voices of Aya Ueto as Astro and the legendary Megumi Hayashibara as Cora. Also listed as part of the cast are Atsushi Abe (Zane), Mika Kanai (Widget), Shinichiro Miki (Sparx), Kenta Miyake (Robotski), Kenji Utsumi (Ham Egg), Takaya Hashi (President Stone), Rikako Aikawa (Freezer), Yasuyuki Kase (Chief Heckler), Tomohiro Nishimura (Dr. Ochanomizu), Nami Miyahara (Sludge), and Kousei Tomita (Hige-oyaji).

Why 'Peacekeeper?' - they could have at least called the big bad robot 'Pluto' for fanservice sake.
