While the live-action Tomb Raider franchise has moved to Amazon in a surprise deal, there still remains Netflix’s animated series, which was just announced today as Tomb Raider: The Legend of Lara Croft. Voicing the iconic video game character is Hayley Atwell, aka Agent Carter in the MCU and recent star of Mission: Impossible-Dead Reckoning.
As far as continuity goes, The Legend of Lara Croft is based on the Tomb Raider video game reboot trilogy and picks up after the events of 2018’s Shadow of the Tomb Raider, bridging the gap to the original games.
Acting as showrunner is Tasha Huo, best known for Netflix’s The Witcher: Blood Origin. Legendary Entertainment and Crystal Dynamics are co-producing, with Powerhouse Animation Studios providing the animation. If the animation style looks familiar, it’s become something of a standard at Netflix, as Legendary and Powerhouse also did the recent Skull Island animated series that debuted last summer.
Tomb Raider: The Legend of Lara Croft hits Netflix in 2024 but doesn’t have a firm date.
