We got news that Netflix will be making a Tomb Raider anime series that takes place in the video game reboot trilogy!
Here’s what Deadline said about the upcoming series:
The Tomb Raider anime series will follow the uber-popular Square Enix video game. The series will pick up after the video game reboot trilogy, and follow heroine Lara Croft 25 years after her first game appeared as she explores new territory.
Tomb Raider has led to a global franchise encompassing movies, merchandise and comic books. The new Netflix-Legendary project marks Lara Croft’s first appearance in an animated series. The most recent game release, Shadow of the Tomb Raider garnered great acclaim.
The anime series will be written by Tasha Huo (The Witcher: Blood Origin, Red Sonja), who will executive produce with dj2 Entertainment Founder and CEO Dmitri M. Johnson (Sonic the Hedgehog) as well as Stephan Bugaj and Howard Bliss. Jacob Robinson will also serve as EP on this series under his company Tractor Pants.
A Tomb Raider anime series sounds good. Also, the fact that the series takes place within the same universe as the video game reboot trilogy was something I was not expecting. I’m looking forward to this, especially since this is Lara Croft’s first time having a series. The anime series could be one of the best things to happen for the IP.
