However, the movie reboot will have competition, using a rival animated series debuting 2021 at Netflix.

Roberts’ expertise in atmospheric horror films, rather than action, screen. They were pointing to how the movie ought to be plenty terrifying.
British actress Kaya Scodelario (Maze Runner) will perform Redfield, while Ant-Man and The Wasp’s Hannah-John Kamen will play Valentine.
The fact that the two leads are out of the first games will also make fans. The signs are good, with Happy, and Scodelario and John-Kamen are both used to franchise fare.
The rest of the cast includes several recognizable game series characters being played with well-known TV actors, with Robbie Amell (Upload) as Claire’s brother, Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy) as Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) as Leon S. Kennedy and Neal McDonough (Yellowstone) as William Birkin.
