Teaser for “Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness” Released!

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.

Featured Heroine: Deet

Deet (or to give her full name, Deethra) is one of two main heroines in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance (a TV show produced by Netflix which serves as a prequel to The Dark Crystal, a film from 1982). She is one of many small, elf-like creatures (with wings, in the case of females) that appear in Age of Resistance. Her lovely voice is provided by Nathalie Emmanuel and her cute puppet is operated by Beccy Henderson.

Teaser for “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance” Released!

Netflix have just released a teaser trailer for their upcoming The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance series, which is a prequel to 1982’s The Dark Crystal, a fantasy film by the renowned puppeteer Jim Henson. The Dark Crystal is probably my favourite fantasy movie, so I’ve been mildly interested in this series ever since I first heard of it. And after watching the teaser trailer… I’m still mildly interested in it.😅

I found this teaser a bit confusing, to be honest. As I said above, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is a prequel series, but not only does the trailer feature locales from the original film, it also seems to have flashforwards to it, making it hard to tell what era each bit of footage was depicting. Hopefully the subsequent trailers will make things clearer. But one thing I can say now is that I’m glad that The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance has a prominent heroine in it, although she cannot hold a candle to Kira, the heroine from the 1982 movie.😋

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is out on August 30. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
