Tomb Raider will get the anime treatment soon on Netflix. As confirmed by the Hollywood Reporter, the Netflix anime will be written and executive produced by Tasha Huo, who has also served as a writer on The Witcher: Blood Origin.
According to the new report, the series will take place after the latest Tomb Raider reboot trilogy, which began with 2013’s Tomb Raider and finished with 2018’s Shadow of the Tomb Raider. That’s appropriate, as that trilogy itself happened before any of the earlier Tomb Raider games and were placed as Lara Croft’s origin story.
The anime won’t be attached to the most recent Tomb Raider movie, which Wes described as “a thoroughly decent action movie.” It’s yet to be seen whether the new and upcoming Tomb Raider live-action sequel, which now has a new director in Misha Green.
