Jill Valentine and Leon Scott Kennedy never had a canonical on-screen encounter. The Only time we see them together is in Dead By Daylight and Fortnite which is not canon. For the first time, we will get to see the two characters whose signature color is blue meet. Resident Evil: Death Island is an animated CGI Film that is canon to Resident Evil games. The Live action adaptations from Constantine films had been let down to the fans because people who are not even fans of the game are given liberties to make those atrocious movies and TV shows. The CGI Resident Evil movies on the other hand are canon to the games.
Fans of the Master of Unlocking had been wanting to see Jill in a new canonical media. Her most current Canon appearance in the timeline is Resident Evil 5. The Last Games where she is led are Resident Evil Revelations which is a prequel of RE5 and Resident Evil 3 remake. Fans wanted to know what happened to Jill after the Events of Resident Evil 5. I don’t think Resident Evil: Death Island will be that because it looks like another midquel. The movie uses Jill’s Sasha Zotova Model from the Re3 remake. So she still looks young. It made me assume this is between Resident Evil 3 and Infinite Darkness and Resident 5. Jill still looks fresh from Raccoon city. The Epilogue of Resident Evil 3 Remake could be a prologue to this.
I am wrong though because this is a Sequel to Resident Vendetta! Chris wears his BSAA Uniform so this could be A post-Resident Evil 5 Jill. Wesker’s experiment and Nemesis’ virus had stopped Jill from Aging. Jill is not Blond, most likely because dyed back her hair. So this is After Resident Evil 5 and 6 and before Resident Evil 7.
Resident Evil: Death Island
Years After the Event of Resident Evil 4, Leon is back in the rescuing business. He has to rescue Dr. Antonio Taylor from his unknown abductors. His mission got interrupted by a mysterious woman. I don’t think it is Ada Wong, She is an anti-hero, not the villain. There is a new Virus that turns people into flesh-eating creatures. They are not zombies though but there seemed to be slit in their mouths. The first victims of the virus were tourists who visited Alcatraz. Chris and the BSSA are on a mission that could lead to a tragedy. Jill Valentine will come out of retirement and work with Leon to uncover all this mystery.
