Summit Entertainment and Imagi have released new images from their upcoming 3-D animated Astroy Boy, which you can view after the jump.

Meanwhile, the official Web site has been updated with an interactive timeline tracing Astro Boy's nearly 60-year history.

The original Astro Boy TV series, based on the 1952 manga by Osamu Tezuka, is often credited as the first anime-style film. Like the original series, the new English-language movie centers on the origins of the robot boy who was created by a scientist who had lost his real son. Freddie Highmore voices Astro, and Kristen Bell voices Cora, a street urchin who befriends him. Astro Boy opens Oct. 23. (Click the images to enlarge.)
