Resident Evil Full-Length CG Anime Movie set for 2017

Leon Kennedy is back to fight the dead in Resident Evil reboot.

Both Sega Sammy Group’s CG animation studio Marza Animation Planet as well as CAPCOM announced that a feature-length Resident Evil/Biohazard CG anime film is in the making for 2017! This new movie, based on Capcom’s Resident Evil/Biohazard horror game franchise, will be a reboot. It will not be a continuation of the previous CG anime movies Resident Evil: Degeneration (2008) and Resident Evil: Damnation (2012).

The movie will have new staff working on it, including:
Takashi Shimizu (Ju-On/The Grudge series) as Executive Director.
Takanori Tsujimoto (The Next Generation -Patlabor-) Director
Makoto Fukami (PSYCHO-PASS) Screenplay
Kenji Kawai (Ghost in The Shell) Music
Hiroyuki Kobayashi (Devil May Cry) Original Story Supervisor

Three characters from the games definitely set to return to the new Resident Evil movie is Chris Redfield, Rebecca Chambers and Leon Scott Kennedy. Resident Evil: Degeneration and Resident Evil: Damnation were brilliant and with a new team of great talents like Takashi Shimizu and Makoto Fukami the new reboot movie might just be as magnificent as its two predecessors.

It is amazing how the game, as well as the game mythology, evolved from its humble beginnings since its release as a PlayStation game in 1996. Over 20 games followed in its wake, and there is even a series of live-action movies starring Milla Jonovich as Alice, featuring some of the characters and undead from the games. The live-action movies are loosely based on the games, not like the CG anime movies that follow the story-lines more closely. There has been huge debates between friends about which movies are better the CG anime versions, or the live action movies.
