A bland, although pretty-looking French movie.
This is a French animated movie that was dubbed into English and given the name of "Astro Kid". Do I like it? Well, I don't.
The first problem I have with is the name the company who dubbed it gave. What the heck is "Astro Kid"? It just makes me think they were trying to cash in with the Astro Boy franchise. It doesn't work, because there is absolutely no connection between both. They should have just kept the original name and translated it to something like "Terra Willy: Journey to a Mysterious Planet" instead.
The animation is actually quite good for what it is. They wouldn't have been able to go through with the budget bigger-name companies would for, but nonetheless still nice-looking.
The story is about... well I cannot remember. The story is easily the most forgettable part of this movie and if I could remember, then my brain would easily lose what it was about.
The voice acting is also quite neat, in both English and French. Although IMDB doesn't list many people who worked on the dub, we have Landen Beattie voicing Terra, and Jason Anthony (His name used to be Jason Canning, but he changed it) voicing Buck.
Overall, animation and voice acting cannot save an animated movie like this one, especially if they have a story that I completely forgot about.
