The latest animated series to get a big screen makeover is Astro Boy, a sort of modern take on the Pinocchio story. The film follows Astro Boy, a robot created to replace the son of a scientist who died in a tragic accident, rejected for his lack of emotions.
The original Japanese Manga TV series of Astro Boy was shown back in 1963, and various versions have been seen across the globe since.
The craft community are clearly fans of the robot boy too, and Etsy seller CraftyisCool has created a pattern to make the Astro Boy Amigurumi ($5) on the right.
