Netflix has given Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness fans a first look at its CGI anime series. Netflix released information for fans such as the show’s director, music composer, and premiere date too.
The streaming giants also unveiled a character trailer for the series focusing on protagonists, Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield.
INFINITE DARKNESS TRAILER
Infinite Darkness will be the first animated series from the Resident Evil horror franchise and based on the trailer, it looks like the anime will stay true to its source materials.
In this trailer, we can see heroes Leon S. Kennedy (Nick Apostolides) and Claire Redfield (Stephanie Panisello) as they investigate a new virus outbreak.
The protagonists have a chance reunion at the White House as the former investigates a hacking incident and the latter petitions the government to construct a welfare building.
The trailer shows some scenes of the zombie attack on the White House that puts Leon on his path to find the new virus source and Claire tries to find out the source of a mysterious drawing made by a refugee child.
DIALOGUE WITH THE DIRECTOR AND OTHER DETAILS
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will be directed by Eiichiro Hasumi. The series is slated to premiere on Netflix this coming July, however, there is still no specific release date yet and we do not know how many episodes it will have.
Director Eiichiro Hasumi had this to say, “Being involved in a work with such a long history and so many fans gave me more joy than it did pressure, while this is a full CG anime, I strove to adjust the camerawork and lighting atmosphere to resemble the live-action filming I usually do to instill this work with a sense of realism. I hope that both fans of the Resident Evil series and non-fans alike can enjoy watching the series in one go”.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is only the first of two series Netflix is making for the franchise. The second is a live-action series and it is being produced by Constantin Film.
