Because of the proximity of Hong Kong to Japan, I grew up watching many Japanese cartoons and children shows. And the original 手塚治虫‘s Astro Boy (dubbed in Cantonese《無敵小飛俠》) was one of many Japanese cartoons that I enjoyed.
So when a friend (a former publicist of CIFF) reached out to me and told me that she has promotional audio interviews/chats of some of the cast members of the new Astro Boy film (see HD trailers), I jumped at the chance to have a listen.
After checking out the four interviews (streaming audio and downloadable mp3), I found them all very interesting and enjoyable to listen to. Since the chats are actually fun to listen to (and not just “advertising”), it is my pleasure to share with your the following four interviews,
– Bill Nighy (voice of Dr. Elefun, love him since his performance in Love Actually and then Underworld, The Girl in the Cafe, etc)
– Eugene Levy (voice of Orrin, he is a super funny man)
– Freddie Highmore (voice of Astro Boy, he was the boy in The Spiderwick Chronicles)
– Kristen Bell (voice of Cora, the charming Kristen also plays Elle Bishop in Heroes)
