    Resident Evil anime gets new trailer, director and composer revealed
    Netflix's original computer graphic anime based on Resident Evil is
    nearing its release. A new trailer was released showing off the
    characters in Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness today. Series
    mainstays Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield can be seen in the
    exciting video. The anime series will celebrate the horror gaming
    franchise's 25th anniversary and will launch in July 2021.

    The director is Eiichiro Hasumi, who has previously helmed Japanese
    hits such as The Sun Does Not Move. "Being involved in a work with
    such a long history and so many fans gave me more joy than it did
    pressure," explained Hasumi. "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."

    Meanwhile, Yugo Kanno will be handling the anime's original score.
    "I inherited the spirit of the many people who worked on the
    previous Resident Evil titles and took on the challenge of creating
    a new atmosphere through trial-and-error," says Kanno. "I was keenly
    aware that this work would be released on Netflix, so I focused on
    the scale of a Hollywood film so that overseas viewers could also
    enjoy this. Since I received the same detailed orders as usual from
    Director Hasumi, I was not particularly conscious of the fact this
    was an animation during its production. In fact, it feels like I am
    only now realizing that this is an animated series."

    The official synopsis states, "In 2006, there were traces of
    improper access to secret Presidential files found in the White
    House's computer network. American federal agent Leon S. Kennedy is
    among the group invited to the White House to investigate this
    incident, but when the lights suddenly go out, Leon and the SWAT
    team are forced to take down a horde of mysterious zombies.
    Meanwhile, TerraSave staff member Claire Redfield encounters a
    mysterious image drawn by a young boy in a country she visited,
    while providing support to refugees. Haunted by this drawing, which
    appears to be of a victim of viral infection, Claire starts her own
    investigation. The next morning, Claire visits the White House to
    request the construction of a welfare facility. There, she has a
    chance reunion with Leon and uses the opportunity to show him the
    boy's drawing. Leon seems to realize some sort of connection between
    the zombie outbreak at the White House and the strange drawing, but
    he tells Claire that there is no relation and leaves. In time, these
    two zombie outbreaks in distant countries lead to events that shake
    the nation to its very core."
