AICN talks with Freddie and Kristen

The infamous Capone from Ain't it Cool News brings yer another interview with Astro Boy movie cast members Kristen Bell and Freddie Highmore originally from Comic Con 2009. It's a good long talk about their parts and the process of acting for an animated feature
Here is a great quote from Freddie about the daunting task of encapsulating Astro Boy into an animated film.

I think it was important and I looked at the manga. Saying that, I think it was important also to make ASTRO BOY our own movie, you know? Not to just base it on what has come before, but I guess to try amalgamate all that is great of Astro Boy into just an hour and a half movie, which is going to be tricky because there is so much that is great about it. I’m sure there are going to be somebody thinking their favorite bit has been left out, but we tried to get as much as possible really and enough people go, we will have a chance to do another one. [Laughs]
I like the sound of that! Yes, a sequel would be very nice!
