A new article has appeared on The Hollywood Reporter that speculates on what the potential success of the Astro Boy movie may bring. Namely a revitalized Imagi studio , which had some well publicized struggles during production, and a possible Astro Boy sequel. Of course, there's pretty much no basis in fact on if a sequel is anything more than just a twinkle in someone's eye at this point. It will take awhile before a decision is made. But if the film is a major success, and all the parties involved can come together and form an agreement again, it's pretty much a given in this day and age that there would be another one. With so much material to work with Atlas, Pluto, Nuka , it'd be a shame if there wasn't a sequel.
