Saint Seiya the live film is unveiled and... we don't know what to think about it

The live movie Knights of the Zodiac, or more exactly Knights of the Zodiac, offers us a not really reassuring first glimpse…

The modern Internet is only talking about a long-awaited movie on March 29, 2023 in France and which showed itself in greater detail last night, prompting widespread optimism about its presumed quality. Indeed, with the latest trailer for Super Mario Bros. The filmall fans of the adventures of the mustachioed plumber are in 200 cc on the Rainbow Road of hype, while the references to the universe of Mario, of Mario Kart at Super Smash Bros.are a treat for video game and Nintendo lovers.

And then so, there was also a very short trailer, a teaser, for the live film this one, from Saint Seiya, Knights of the Zodiac, Knights of the Zodiac. And if it will hardly be worse than the lunar Netflix adaptation in 3D animation, difficult to be very excited at the moment, when you are a fan of the adventures of the Pegasus Knight and his brothers.

Directed by Tomasz Bagiński, series producer The Witcher with Henry Cavill (and now without him) for Netflix, this adaptation of Masami Kurumada’s manga will be with, as we already knew but this time we see them in this short preview, Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Famke Janssen (X-Men) and in the title role, that of Seiya, Mackenyu, young Japanese actor and future Zoro from the Netflix live adaptation of One Piece.

Fans will have recognized in the first shots of this teaser, the Knight of Capricorn, certainly fighting the Knight of Sagittarius, an essential element in the origins of the Battle of Sanctuary, still today the favorite and most emblematic arc of Saint Seiya. It remains to be seen if this is the one that will be treated in this next film, or if the context will be new, like the way in which we can see the armor materialize on the characters, like Iron Man in the MCU.

Finally, there remains a Pegasus armor which seems relatively faithful to the one we know and a furtive appearance of Athena which reveals a power that shatters the armor of her assailants.

Knights of the Zodiac currently looks more like a fan film than a big Hollywood production, but we will have to wait for its release in 2023 to be completely fixed.
