and filmmakers will be celebrities including Danny DeVito and
Rhea Perlman; Wallace Langham ("Veronica's Closet"); brothers

"The Iron Giant," the latest animated feature from Warner Bros.

when a 9-year-old boy named Hogarth rescues a 50-foot metal giant
outside of the small town of Rockwell, Maine in 1957.

and Mel Gibson, the Iron Giant will be immortalized with a
