New Resident Evil animated film out this summer

Will Jill and Leon finally meet on screen?

A new Resident Evil animated film is on the way this summer.

Resident Evil: Death Island will be a continuation of the animated saga, which has mostly followed the career of Leon Kennedy, and is distributed by Sony Pictures.

Judging by the brand new teaser trailer, there's a zombie outbreak (shock!) on the island of Alcatraz that only Leon and Chris Redfield can deal with - check it out below.

If you watched until the end you'll spot Jill Valentine too, meaning this may well be the first time we seen Jill and Leon together on screen.

"D.S.O. agent Leon S. Kennedy is on a mission to rescue Dr. Antonio Taylor from kidnappers, when a mysterious woman thwarts his pursuit," reads a synopsis in the video description.

"Meanwhile, B.S.A.A. agent Chris Redfield is investigating a zombie outbreak in San Francisco, where the cause of the infection cannot be identified. The only thing the victims have in common is that they all visited Alcatraz Island recently. Following that clue, Chris and his team head to the island, where a new horror awaits them."

Death Island will follow the animated mini series Infinite Darkness, which was released on Netflix in 2021.

It was clearly popular enough to continue with this new film, although Resident Evil adaptations haven't been particularly successful recently.

A live-action adaptation released last year (also on Netflix) did not go down well with fans.
