Astro Boy hits theaters today! And we got to chat with its star, Freddie Highmore, a few hours before he hit the red carpet with Kristen Bell for the movie's L.A. premiere earlier this week.

Freddie, 17, is currently juggling school and movies. "I still go to school," he said. "I'm in my last year now, so hopefully I'll [go] off to university and squeeze in acting at the same time."

We also asked Freddie all about his character, Astro Boy, and whether he prefers animated flicks to live action roles. Click here to see a gallery of Astro Boy's powers.
