The Iron Giant

Role: Dean McCoppin

Director: Brad Byrd

Year: 1999

Based on the 1968 story "Iron Man" by British poet laureate Ted Hughes, this critically acclaimed animated feature film tells the story of a giant, gentle robot that falls to earth and is befriended by a young boy. Hogarth, a lonely 9-year-old, is overjoyed at finding the coolest toy in the universe. Sadly, the fun and joy of the new-found friends is short-lived as a nosey government agent, along with the military, comes snooping around trying to find the Iron Giant. This timeless tale of fear, prejudice, friendship and humanity reaches out to people of all ages and exemplifies the wonders of being a child again.
