It was announced awhile ago that Netflix was developing a series based on Resident Evil!
Well finally, plot details have been announced. Some will be disappointed, some will be curious...
Here is what Netflix has to say regarding the plot:
"In the first timeline, fourteen-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are moved to New Raccoon City. A manufactured, corporate town, forced on them right as adolescence is in full swing. But the more time they spend there, the more they come to realize that the town is more than it seems and their father may be concealing dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world. Cut to the second timeline, well over a decade into the future: there are less than fifteen million people left on Earth. And more than six billion monsters -- people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now thirty, struggles to survive in this New World, while the secrets from her past - about her sister, her father, and herself - continue to haunt her."
All I can say is... hm.
Resident Evil is my favorite video game franchise of all time. And I, like so many, would love to see the story from the games come to life on the big or small screen. It looks like this series, much like the film series, will not follow the games. Which is saddening.
However I'll hold off judgement until seeing the final work. Let's hope the series is great!
Are you excited?
