"Based on the classic Japanese manga (and eventual television series), this spanky new colorful version of Astro Boy stars the voices of Freddy Highmore, Kristen Bell, Nicolas Cage, Bill Nighy and Nathan Lane -- and it follows a young robot with big-time super powers who ventures off on a journey in search of acceptance when he's doesn't quite meet the replacement son expectations of the scientist who created him. And it's on this journey that Astro Boy faces his toughest challenge yet: help save earth from an alien race threatening the planet."

"I have never seen so many rainbows in my life. They were everywhere -- fat ones, skinny ones, straight ones, bowed ones. But what did I expect? I was in a rain forest. And I had traveled through one of the wettest places on the entire planet, Quince Mil, a town named after the 15,000 millimeters (that's about 50 feet) of rain it got one year."
