New Saint Seiya CG Film Confirmed by Toei Animation

Saint Seiya is getting the CG treatment. No, not a colonic gastronomy - COMPUTER GENERATION!

Masami Kurumada's mythological fantasy manga, and in result Toei Animation's anime, Saint Seiya, is getting it's CG treatment just in time to celebrate it's 25th anniversary. 

The original Saint Seiya manga series ran from 1986-1990 and was collected in 28 volumes. VIZ Media acquired the rights to the manga and released those 28 volumes here in North America starting on 2004 and ending February of last year. Toei Animation's anime adaptation began in 1986 and ended in 1989 lasting 114 episodes. In 2003 Cartoon Network aired the first 32 episodes of the anime renaming the show Knights of the Zodiac and heavily editing the episodes in order to show it to a younger audience. ADV Films and DiC Entertainment released the anime in the US and the first season of the video anime spin-off, Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas, was streamed by CrunchyRoll

As you can see the Saint Seiya franchise has been through a lot this past twenty-five years. During Jump Fiesta last year this project was teased before being officially green-lit by showing a short video. That teaser video is now streaming on their website. Now it is official that Toei Animation will be working on this CG interpretation of the classic anime.
 
I'm guessing further information about this project will be released soon. Are you excited for the release of this CG film?

Haven't gotten around to the anime. I need to at least check it out.

A friend of mine is a HUGE fan of this anime. I haven't seen it but I do want to watch this movie.  
Apparently, this anime's popularity outside of Japan was mostly situated in Latin America and Europe... so I am guessing any users from over the pond and down south must be excited to hear about this!

You can bet on it, pal ! 
 
In fact, here in French and in Belgium, almost all males between 40 and 25 know the Anime.  
 
The dubbing is quite good, the music is GREAT, and the action is awesomely badass ! I was watching the show in my childhood, and while is was quite violent, it was also breathtakingly awesome. 
 
I've heard the english dubbing was quite bad, howerver, but nothing worth a subttled original version.

I think my PS3 (Blu-Ray player) needs a few moments alone with a box of tissues.   
 
I'm way behind though.  I still haven't seen the last half of Lost Canvas.  If this picks up from where that left off, then I'm just gonna be horrendously lost :(  Unless they're planning on rebooting...? 
 
What I wouldn't give for some affordable official boxsets so I wouldn't have to rely on my old bootlegs.
