Directed by The Witcher’s Tomasz Baginski, the film stars Mackenyu as Seiya, “a street orphan and the title hero of the franchise. When a mystical energy known as Cosmo awakens in him, Seiya embarks on a journey to conquer the ancient Greek armour of Pegasus and choose his side in a preternatural battle for the fate of Sienna (Iseman), a young girl who struggles to control her godly powers Bean plays a mentor named Alman Kiddo, a man who recruits Seiya into the Knights order, which he founded when he discovered the reincarnated goddess. Tinoco has the juicy part of Nero/Phoenix, hired to kill the vulnerable goddess.”
