The folks at Jazwares Inc. let us know that they have been awarded the master toy license for the new ASTRO BOY movie.

Slated for worldwide theatrical release in 2009, ASTRO BOY will feature the voices of Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, Nathan Lane, Bill Nighy and Eugene Levy with Freddie Highmore in the title role. David Bowers is directing ASTRO BOY from a screenplay written by Timothy Harris, with Maryann Garger producing.

ASTRO BOY was created by the "god of manga", Japan's Osamu Tezuka, in the early 1950s. The iconic character has since found wide popularity around the world as the hero of three acclaimed animated television series spanning the past four decades, besides being one of the top licensed properties for merchandising.

More details about this new toyline will be revealed soon.

With the rerelease of the Super Poser Sonic the Hedgehog figure, is there any chance we will see a rerelease of the Super Poser Shadow? Also will you consider releasing the, unforunatelly canceled, Super Poser Knuckles and Tails?
