Astro Boy and the Greatest Robots in the World
A robot boy designed with human emotions becomes the superhero and protector of a city coming to terms with equal rights for humans and robots.
In Metro City, humans and robots are learning to co-exist, but there is still a long way to go. Although robots have won equal rights, there is still some animosity among humans – and there are some robots who pose a danger to humanity. Astro Boy is a robot who has the power to unite! Although he possesses super-strength, laser guns and jet-propelled flight, Astro's greatest strength is his human emotion, compassion and an unwavering sense of justice.
Across four episodes selected from the adored 1980 television series, Astro encounters some of the greatest robots in the world. The Light Ray Robot has the power of invisibility which is quickly put to use by a group of petty criminals. Bruton possesses enormous strength and is driven to become the strongest robot in the world, even if he has to destroy his closest competition to achieve it. And Robio is a champion racing car driver who finds himself torn between loyalty and love in a story inspired by Shakespeare's tragic play.
