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.😊
The Japanese art site pixiv has added an interesting new “Request” feature. It is kind of like a commission system, except that the artist is under no obligation to accept every single request. Also, other fans can buy into a request simply by paying the same price as the original requester.
These kind of things rarely work out for me, but I’ve decided to give it a go, at least for a little while. So if you’re interested in making a request, click HERE. My fee for a request is ¥4000.
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 Leon Kennedy, 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?
