Jakob Jensen Talks AstroBoy

The Hollywood Reporter talked to Danish-born animator Jakob Jensen, who is animating AstroBoy for Imagi. Here’s a clip:

“I was intrigued with the possibility of the project. I’m in the process of educating myself about the ‘Astro Boy’ universe, and I love what I see. ‘Astro Boy’ utilizes very classical story principles of the hero’s journey that we see in all good storytelling around the world, Jensen said. “Astro Boy has the moral underpinning and strong emotional resonance that a lot of animation today is lacking.”
