Astro Boy Movie hits home in March!

What better way to kick off the new year here on ABW than to bring word of the Region 1 release of the Astro Boy movie on DVD and Blu-Ray.

According to The HD Room, the film will be available in North America on March 16th, 2010. There are no further details announced at this time as to what kinds of extras will be included in this release. In fact, there isn't any box art yet! However, you can pre-order the DVD or Blu-ray version for a reduced price on and help support Astro Boy World in the process.

This March promises to be a very exciting month for North American fans, as not only is Astro Boy on the home video release slate, but so is Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo on DVD and Blu-Ray + DVD combo pack and the long awaited Blu-Ray release of Evangelion 1.11: You Are Not Alone. I'd better start saving my pennies now!
