Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) both died in The Matrix Revolutions. Therefore, the attempt to reincarnate them in The Matrix 4 makes sense.
In the first trailer, it appears that the two main characters have lost their memories. Trinity is seen asking if they’ve ever known each other. This is strongly suspected because they took a blue pill that resets their memory. The figure of Neo has also returned to life as Thomas Anderson.
