"Welcome to Raccoon City is basically an origins story, so we are witnessing Leon Kennedy's journey," he has said as footage from the film is interspersed. "For the fans, Leon is an action hero, but we wanted to go back to the second original game, where he is a slightly naive and suspicious hero." The director recalled that he did not want the protagonist to look the same as in the title, an idea that he has previously transmitted.
Avan Jogia, who plays Leon, has assured that fans of the game will be happy with the film because it focuses their attention on classic products. "Maybe we will see Leon become the character that the players recognize"; Roberts added. In any case, he will evolve throughout the entire movie, little by little and shaped by the horrible circumstances around him. Fortunately, he will have the support of another important protagonist of the saga, Claire Redfield.
