The Iron Giant: Signature Edition
It’s 1957 in the small town of Rockwell, Maine. Hogarth Hughes is just a normal nine-year-old boy: headstrong and imaginative, always on the lookout for adventure. When Hogarth overhears a tall tale about a giant metal man falling into the sea, Hogarth sets out exploring to find the enormous robot. What he finds is a 50-foot giant with an insatiable appetite for metal and a childlike curiosity about its new world.
As rumors fly about everything from an alien invasion to a Russian secret weapon, the paranoia of the town escalates and the possible destruction of Rockwell looms. Hogarth turns to his friend, the Iron Giant, who ultimately finds its humanity by unselfishly saving the town.
From Brad Bird, director of The Incredibles and Ratatouille. Starring Jennifer Aniston (voice of Annie Hughes) and Christopher McDonald (voice of Kent Mansley).
