Knights of the Zodiac Announces U.S. Release Date

Knights of the Zodiac's movie has been getting ready for its theatrical debut overseas, and now Knights of the Zodiac has announced the United States release date for its live-action movie debut! Masami Kurumada's Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac manga first launched in the pages of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine decades ago, and has since become a massive franchise with all sorts of new anime adaptations, sequels, video games and more. But later this Spring fans will get to see a new live-action take on it in a cool new effort from Toei

For fans of Knights of the Zodiac, 2023 is going to be a great year. First the feature film will be hitting theaters across Japan on April 28th (with the official title of Seint Seiya The Beginning), but thankfully it won't be much longer than that before fans in the United States get to see it. Knights of the Zodiac will be releasing in U.S. theaters on May 12th under Sony Pictures' Stage 6 Films label, so mark your calendars Saint Seiya fans to check it out when it hits!

How to Watch Knights of the Zodiac Movie

Knights of the Zodiac will be hitting theaters in the United States on May 12th. Tomek Baginski directs the film for Toei, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' Andy Cheng serves as stunt and fight coordinator, and Josh Campbell and Matt Stuecken (10 Cloverfield Lane) wrote the script. Starring the likes of Mackenyu, Famke Janssen, Madison Iseman, Diego Tinoco, Mark Dacascos, Nick Stahl and Sean Bean, Knights of the Zodiac is teased as such:

"Produced by Toei Animation and based on the international anime sensation, Knights of the Zodiac brings the Saint Seiya saga to the big screen in live-action for the first time. Seiya (Mackenyu), a headstrong street teen, spends his time fighting for cash while he searches for his abducted sister. When one of his fights unwittingly taps into mystical powers he never knew he had, Seiya finds himself thrust into a world of warring saints, ancient magical training and a reincarnated goddess who needs his protection. If he's to survive, he will need to embrace his destiny and sacrifice everything to take his rightful place among the Knights of the Zodiac."
