The future is looking very exciting for Resident Evil fans. We’re getting a new game, a
probably terrible final Resident Evil live-action movie, and a new animated movie. A new trailer for the animated movie, Resident Evil: Vendetta, appeared online and gives us a glimpse of what to expect.
The previous two have been very successful, especially in expanding Leon’s overall story in the RE universe. Leon returns in the third installment, but this time, he’ll be sharing some screen time with Chris Redfield and fan-favourite Rebecca Chambers. Not much is known story-wise, but we do know that it takes place between RE6 and RE7. In the trailer, we see Leon and Chris investigate a zombie-filled mansion. Now, I highly doubt it’s the same mansion we’ve seen in the RE7 demo, but you never know. Whatever happens, I’m just super stoked that Rebecca is making a comeback.
If you haven’t seen the other two animated movies, then I HIGHLY recommend that you do. They are so much better than the live-action movies (which I have slaughtered on more than one occasion). I’ll still watch Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, but I’ll probably have my McKayla Maroney “not impressed” face on the entire time.
