According to ToonBarn and Animation Digital Digest, production on the new Little Astro Boy series has officially begun. As you see in the post above me, the companies working on the new Little Astro Boy are accepting job applications for various production aspects of the show.

ToonBarn wrote:New Astro Boy series enters production

Production has begun on an all-new Astro Boy animated series. Unlike the prior shows, Osamu Tezuka’s lovable robot isn’t being handled by Japanese animators. French companies Planet Nemo Animation and Something Big are partnering up with Tezuka Productions for Little Astro Boy, a new series aimed at preschool audiences that’ll have 52 eleven minute episodes.

The eco-systems of planet Earth are endangered. Lucky for us, a super-powered robot boy is flying to rescue! astro in on a mission to help anyone anywhere in the world with a problem involving natural phenomena. Go little Astro Boy ! GO !


Production began in April ahead of its full blown start in June. Animation work is scheduled to go beyond February of next year. Virgile Trouillot handled the character designs and serves as the creative director. No release window has been set, but the show might be able to launch in 2018. The Weinstein Company will distribute Little Astro Boy internationally.

Despite their French roots, this series is independent of the Astro Boy Reboot project. It’s also unrelated to the earlier Little Astro Boy series produced in 2014 by Tezuka Productions in association with Nigerian animators, which was dubbed into English by Azur Productions in Vancouver, Canada. However, given the demographic similarities between the two, it’s hard not to think that 8 episode series might have been a test run for this show.

Isn't it Atomcat behind Astro ? :-D
The real sign that someone has become a fanatic is that he completely loses his sense of humor about some important facet of his life. When humor goes, it means he's lost his perspective.

Is the girl with the orange hair Uran?

No; it looks like she's going to be Ochanomizu's granddaughter, whose name is "Suzu". YJ Doodle did a translation of a Japanese article and found out this info:

YJ_Doodle wrote:Korean translation tells me that Ochanomizu is again Atom's guardian, and that girl in the poster is his granddaughter. The cat's name seems to be "Astro Kitty"(Basically Atomcat) and there are two professors- "Dr. Brant" who has a profession with animals, and "Dr. Serena" who has a profession with plants.

My current theory is that the red haired doctor guy and the short black-haired woman beside him are her parents/one of them is Ochanomizu's child.

"Ochanomizu"? Could it be that his name will really be rendered "Ochanomizu" in English? That'll be the day. I'm not sure the English-speaking world is ready.
