What Are The 2 Most Prominent Features Of Anime characters?
So of course, if you want to make a modern adaptation of them, you have to tone them way down. This is the theory of all remakes: take out everything that made the original popular in the first place.
I saw the trailer for this the other day before the Meatballs movie and man...like, I'm not a big Anime fan to begin with, but I would go see an Astro Boy movie if it was like the Tezuka cartoons.
Instead, of course they have taken the original Anime cartoon and turned it totally into a Cal Arts character. He acts, moves and makes expressions like every other character in a modern animated American feature. I bet there's even fake pathos and all the last stuff you'd ever want to see in an Astro Boy movie.
