The animation offensive at Netflix continues undeterred: With Lara Croft, the next video game heroine becomes an anime protagonist. The story of the whole thing should tie in with the reboot trilogy.

Some people speak of the "new" Lara Croft, but the Tomb Raider reboot trilogy began back in 2013. In the meantime, the younger archaeologist and killer machine has researched myths of the world and made ruins unsafe in three parts. But we will probably follow her next adventure passively: An animated series has now been announced by Netflix. This continues the trend of video game animes such as Dragon's Dogma or Castlevania on the popular streaming service. The latter could get the fourth season this year.

On Twitter it says via Netflix: "The most iconic video game heroine is animated! Tomb Raider is a new anime series from Legendary, dedicated to Lara Croft after the events of the Reboot trilogy."

What will the Tomb Raider anime be about?

There are no further details of the story at this point, but the reference to the video games is an important point of reference. Accordingly, it is not a completely new iteration of the character, not Alicia Vikander's movie version, but also not the "classic" Lara Croft, who was the heroine in the very first game until the reboot of the series. The series, which began in 2013, has so far acted as a prequel and was intended to show how a young researcher becomes the adventurer we previously knew.

The Tomb Raider reboot trilogy is from a 'Dark & ​​amp; Gritty 'style - will Netflix's anime be able to capture that too?

The connection to the third part – Shadow of the Tomb Raider – does not allow any direct conclusions to be drawn about the story. It's not like the game had a cliffhanger at the end that hinted at the next story. Ms. Croft will probably face supernatural opponents again, which was not the case in the 2018 film adaptation.
