    This has been reported several times on Toonzone already, but I think it deserves its own thread.
    There is a new Astroboy Reboot coming in 2018 as a French-Monacan-Japanese co-production. The art looks pretty good so far!

    Don't think I like it. Every time some series gets rebooted it becomes more distant from the source than before and looks even more simple and childish. This just looks weird. Not bad. But weird. It doesn't fit. And from what I can see it will be more comedy than action. Just like the new Ben 10 - which on its own makes Astro Boy returning right now unnecessary. What should have happened instead was that CN wouldn't reboot Ben 10 and instead bought the rights to this, or even worked on it, because this style is definitely up their alley. This new Astro Boy, apart from the movement, doesn't feel like Astro Boy. More like Powerpuff Girls meets Ben 10. Oh well. More wasted money.

    Another show that is a French animated reboot, I have some skepticism but for the most part I am glad that it's in 2D.

    My only nitpick is that "Reboot" is in the title.
    Good god is that a near perfect trailer. I'm definitely hyped for this.

    Yeah, I'll stick with the 2000 and 2003 shows, thank you very much. I don't trust reboots of stuff I liked the way it was, as it is. Maybe if someone made an actual action show with a new robot hero (actual action, by the by, not no crap on Star Vs.'s level that lies to me about what it is and wants to be.....), then I'd really be interested.

    There's also the 1960s and 1980s series if you want to get retro.

    BTW, I know a lot of people around here like Star Vs. (unlike me), so thanks for not jumping on me or anything like that... Also, Thanks for the recommendations - only because, to be honest with you and anyone else, I can't see this show being good if it's not gonna stay true to its roots, like at least the 2000 and (but not completely) the 2003 show(s) have done.

    Are you making the distinction between the subbed and dubbed? Apparently those premiered within the same year.

    Oh, dear - I didn't know that much. I'm being honest; I didn't.

    I can understand being skeptical if the show can live up to the trailer, but I don't get the hate for something so beautiful. Every time they make a new cartoon it is technically a reboot, and this time instead of doing some crappy looking silly cgi cartoon they are reaching much higher.

    Does anyone know what happened? It's October already, but still no news.

    Their website is kinda empty. I subscribed to their newsletter a while ago but still nothing.

    Sadly this is the part of the shows run where not much is said, the only time anything will be likely said at this point is within the shows debut.
