Kristen Bell lends voice to Astro Boy

Our little Veronica is all growns up now.? Bell, the star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and our bored office day dreams will be voicing the female lead in Imagi Studios CG-animated Astro Boy.

She joins a voice cast that includes Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, Bill Nighy, Nathan Lane, Eugene Levy and Freddie Highmore.

Set in futuristic Metro City, Astro Boy is about a young robot with incredible powers created by a brilliant scientist to replace the son he has lost. Unable to fulfill the grieving father’s expectations, our hero embarks on a journey in search of acceptance, experiencing betrayal and a netherworld of robot gladiators, before he returns to save Metro City and reconcile with the man who had rejected him.

But um, Kristen Bell you guys. Even if she will be behind the camera. She’s a plucky one.
