Japanese Animated film "Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary" opens in Chinese theaters on Friday.

As one of Japan's most influential animated heroes, "Saint Seiya" has finally made his big screen debut, three decades after the character was first introduced.

Adapted from the Japanese manga, "Saint Seiya" tells the story of a young group of warriors called "Saints" in present-day Japan who fight for their holy mission to protect a young girl, who is the modern reincarnation of the goddess Athena from the Age of Myth.

The comic book series were initially published in 1985, and the animated TV show was then released in Japan and later aired in more than 80 countries.

China introduced the TV series in 1992 and it soon became hugely popular among children and teenagers.

Many Chinese fans say they are eager to watch their childhood idols on the big screen.
