MetalHeart Posted August 18, 2004 Share Posted August 18, 2004 Information taken from: The Movie Box // Steamboy SYNOPSIS __________ Plot: The long anticipated feature cost 2.4 billion Yen (US$20.2m) to produce just a few dollars short of the 2.4 billion Yen that it cost to produce Spirited Away, the most expensive Anime feature ever. In contrast, Steam Boy comprises 180 000 cels, 1.5 times as many as Spirited Away. STEAMBOY follows Rei, a young inventor living in the U.K. in the middle of the 19th century. Shortly before the first ever World Expo, a marvelous invention called the "Steam Ball", behind which a menacing power is hidden, arrives at his door from his grandfather Roid in the U.S. Meanwhile the nefarious Ohara Foundation has sent men to acquire the Steam Ball so that they can use its power towards their own illicit ends. --- animenewsnetwork.com DETAILS__________ Studio: Sony Pictures / Toho Film Distributing Co.
