Metropolis, which took five years to make and cost $10 million is based on the 1949 manga by Osamu Tezuka (Astro Boy, Kimba the White Lion). Otomo, who was the creative force behind Memories and Perfect Blue, wrote the script based Tezuka's manga.
Metropolis follows the life of Kenichi, a human boy; Tima, a mechanical man; and a gender-neutral robot (which was the basis for Astro Boy). The three live in a society divided between the elite "Upperground" and the corrupt "Underground." Metropolis will combine advanced digital anime and Japanese-style cel animation.
