Tomb Raider Anime Series Announced For Netflix
This year is shaping up to be an exciting one for Tomb Raider fans. Although there hasn’t been any news on a potential fourth game in the rebooted video game trilogy from Square Enix, a Tomb Raider anime series that takes place after said trilogy will instead be gracing our screens courtesy of Netflix and Legendary Pictures.
Netflix took to Twitter today to announce that Lara Croft will be making her debut on the streaming service in a new Tomb Raider anime series, said to follow the intrepid heroine “after the events of the video-game reboot trilogy.” For those keeping track, this means that Lara Croft may still be worn down from her latest adventure to halt the end of the world, though there instead may be a time jump to set the Tomb Raider on a brand new adventure with fewer ties to, say, Trinity.

As reported by Entertainment Weekly, the Tomb Raider anime series has tapped The Witcher: Blood Origin’s Tasha Huo to write and executive producer. Given that the Tomb Raider anime series specifically takes place after the video game trilogy, it is likely that Lara Croft will look similar to how she appears in the Square Enix games and – to a slightly lesser extent – how she’s portrayed by Alicia Vikander in the movies. Basically, she won’t look like Angelina Jolie or the hot pixelated mess from the 90’s.
