In Netflix’s Resident Evil trailer, the girls are new to New Raccoon City. They seem to live in a world that has managed to overcome the horrors of the late 1990s and the outbreak that took over Original Raccoon City.
A New Version of Resident Evil
Surely there is a purpose to this proposed narrative in two different eras. Andrew Dabb, the director of the series, had already commented that he wanted to present us with a different story. During an interview, he stated, “We would adapt to a zombie outbreak. It may not be pretty, but we would be able to do it”. The showrunner will focus his vision on conveying a world that has come to terms with what has happened and is trying to overcome it.
However, the direction does not want to stray from the canon of the popular zombie franchise. They have introduced key elements so that the viewer feels like they are in this universe. Albert Wesker plays an important role in the plot, and authorities bombed Raccoon City in 1998. Wesker’s prominence in this Netflix’s Resident Evil trailer tells us that it will have interesting content for fans. The director stated that the director would well justify this version of New Raccoon City set in the present day. He also argued that they would not use simple narrative resources, but it will be a well-elaborated plot.
