Mackenyu Arata has several major projects coming in 2023 and we just got an update on his upcoming Hollywood film. The new teaser for Knights of the Zodiac finally reveals more of the cast including Sean Bean and Famke Janssen. In addition, we got a better look at Mackenyu in his full Saint Seiya armor.

Saint Seiya Gets His Full Armor

The new Knights of the Zodiac teaser is a more extended version of the brief promo that was released two days before. In the new video, Mackenyu's character is approached by Sean Bean's Alman Kiddo who tells him that the goddess Athena has been reincarnated. Kiddo also confirms that Seiya has been chosen to protect the goddess but he is unconvinced.

Although Seiya is reluctant to believe Kiddo, it is clear he takes on the role as he is shown preparing to fight and getting cool armor.

We're loving the armor and how Mackenyu is proving he is suited for the role. The teaser is only 30 seconds long but it does feature a lot of action scenes and we can't wait for a full trailer soon.

Mackenyu Set For Huge Year in 2023

Saint Seiya is only one of many major roles that Mackenyu will take on in 2023. The Pacific Rim: Uprising star has completed work on Netflix's live-action One Piece series where he will play Roronoa Zoro.

Knights of the Zodiac will also star Sean Bean, Famke Janssen, Madison Iseman, Nick Stahl, and Mark Dacascos. The film will follow Mackenyu's Seiya as he goes on a journey to conquer the ancient Greek armor of Pegasus with the help of Sean Bean's Alman Kiddo.
