Resident Evil: Death Island trailer offers a look at new animated feature

A trailer has been released for the animated feature Resident Evil: Death Island, coming to home video at the end of July

A new live-action film based on the Resident Evil video game franchise is in the works (we’ve heard that it’s called Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and based on the game Resident Evil Zero), but while we wait to see how that’s going to turn out, we’re also going to have a new computer animated Resident Evil movie to watch. This one is called Resident Evil: Death Island, and it’s set to receive a Blu-ray, 4K steelbook, DVD, and digital release on July 25th! You can watch the trailer in the embed above.

Resident Evil: Death Island is the fourth animated Resident Evil feature, following Resident Evil: Degeneration, Resident Evil: Damnation, and Resident Evil: Vendetta. There was also an animated mini-series called Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness.

Directed by Eiichiro Hasumi from a screenplay by Makoto Fukami, Resident Evil: Death Island has the following synopsis: In San Francisco, Jill Valentine is dealing with a zombie outbreak and a new T-Virus, Leon Kennedy is on the trail of a kidnapped DARPA scientist, and Claire Redfield is investigating a monstrous fish that is killing whales in the bay. Joined by Chris Redfield and Rebecca Chambers, they discover the trail of clues from their separate cases all converge on the same location, Alcatraz Island, where a new evil has taken residence and awaits their arrival.

The voice cast includes Matthew Mercer, Stephanie Panisello, Kevin Dorman, Nicole Tompkins, and Erin Cahill. The film was produced by Hiroyasu Shinohara, with Capcom’s Masachika Kawata, Takaki Okamoto, and Taki Enomoto serving as associate producers with Takahiro Suzuki and Atsushi Furuya.

Resident Evil: Death Island reaches home video with the following special features: Genesis of Death Island – Jill Valentine: The Return – Motion Capture Set Tour – Designing Death Island – Voicing Death Island – The Birth of Death Island – Design Gallery

I tried to watch Resident Evil: Degeneration when it was first released, but couldn’t really get into it, so I’m way behind on these animated projects. I try giving them another chance one of these days.
