This is the Official Teaser Trailer for Raya and the Last Dragon, a new film from Disney that is scheduled to be released in March next year, in the US at least. To be honest, I’ve never been a fan of Disney animated films. Apart from their stories being generally unoriginal, their heroines all seem very generic. They tend to look the same, act the same, and have a habit of spouting American colloquialisms. However, I have to admit that this film does look interesting.
As you can see, Raya will apparently feature a heroine in an Asian-inspired fantasy world undertaking an epic quest, which could be pretty cool. And if the music in this trailer is anything to go by, the soundtrack will be pretty cool, too. It still has colloquialisms, of course, but if the rest of the film is solid, I think I could put up with them.😊
This is a teaser trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, a “CG anime series” by CAPCOM, which will be available on Netflix sometime in 2021. Unless CAPCOM is holding back a surprise or two, it looks pretty certain that this series will feature Resident Evil regulars Claire Redfield and LeonKennedy, both of who made their debut in Resident Evil 2. Personally, I think Leon gets way too much attention in the Resident Evil universe, but I’m glad Claire is getting another opportunity in the spotlight.😊
Claire looks somewhat older (as does Leon, of course), so it’s safe to say that Infinite Darkness takes place many years after the events of Raccoon City and around the time of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 or Resident Evil 6. Other than that, though, it’s difficult to determine what Infinite Darkness will be about; I can only assume it will be something in the vein of previous Resident Evil 3D animations (such as the film Resident Evil: Vendetta from 2017), although the focus appears to be on horror rather than action. It’ll be interesting to see what information the next trailer will provide us with.
This is the second trailer, in English, for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, an upcoming addition to The Legend of Zelda video game franchise. It was announced by Nintendo a few weeks ago, and it is a prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the 2017 adventure game. However, unlike Breath of the Wild, Age of Calamity is a hack and slash game, which is a genre that does not really interest me. Nevertheless, it does feature the same exact character designs as Breath of the Wild, which I think are the best designs out of all the Zelda games, and that reason alone makes it pretty cool!😄
The cover art, which the Japanese-language banner above is based on, is pretty cool too. Zelda in particular looks great in it, don’t you think?
On Pinterest today I happened upon a poster (see above) for an upcoming 3D animated film called Ainbo. From what I can gather, this film was originally planned to be released in 2019, but it is now scheduled to be released in 2021 instead. You can check out an official teaser trailer for it below.
Put succinctly, Ainbo is the story of a young native girl from the jungles of South America, and her journey to save her home, which is being threatened by civilisation. From a purely personal point of view, I think it Ainbo has the potential to be a really fun film. And I say that for three reasons. Firstly, it’s about a jungle girl, and I’m a big fan of stories about jungle girls. Secondly, the animation looks top notch and very cute (in a Disney-like way). Thirdly, it is mainly being produced by a Peruvian studio (Tunche Films), which puts it somewhere close to my heart.
Unfortunately, Ainbo doesn’t seem to have an official website at the moment (the link provided by IMDB is dead) but if I come across more information about it in the future, I’ll write a follow-up post to this one. But for now, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
A trailer for the upcoming second season of Amazon Prime‘s Hanna has just been released! This follows up a very short teaser trailer that was released about a couple of weeks ago.
I thoroughly enjoyed Ms Esme Creed-Miles’ performance as Hanna in the first season, so I’m looking forward to see her in the second season. As you would expect, the trailer doesn’t show an awful lot, but I think her action sequences look much more fluid than they were before. Oh, and I think her new bleach-blonde look is pretty cool, too!😆
