The series is produced by Japanese studio TMS Entertainment and animated by Quebico. The voice cast includes Nick Apostolides as Leon Kennedy and Stephanie Panisello as Claire Redfield, who previously voiced the characters in Capcom’s 2019 remake of “Resident Evil 2.” The cast also includes Ray Chase (Takeshi Kovacs in “Altered Carbon: Resleeved”) as Jason and Jona Xiao (“Raya and the Last Dragon”) as Shen May. It’s directed by Eiichiro Hasumi and the score is composed by Yugo Kanno.
The trailer is exciting. The undisputed highlight is a big, green monster saying “I will show you fear” before attacking Leon. Not surprisingly, fans on Twitter — replying to Netflix’s trailer unveiling – were hyped on it. “LEON AND CLAIRE BACK TOGEHTER WOOOOOOAAAHHH” tweeted @JazzFischsticks. Meanwhile, @mikabelle_ replied with equal exhilaration: “NOT ME SCREAMING WITH EXCITEMENT AT 4 AM WHEN I SAW LEON’S FACE,” .
“Whoever played the game gonna love this,” tweeted @bisuhoney.
“Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness” will be released on Netflix on Thursday, July 8.
