While movies based around video games have kind of flopped, it seems that when adapted into different formats like TV shows and animated series, they have fared much better. Netflix’s The Witcher series and its Castlevania series have both done extremely well, and now it looks like the company is trying its hand at yet another video game franchise.
In a press release from Netflix, the company has announced that a Tomb Raider anime series is being developed for the platform by dj2 Entertainment. Not much is known about the series at this point in time, like when it is planned for a release or who will be doing the voice acting for the main character, Lara Croft.
The Tomb Raider video game franchise was rebooted a while back where it featured Camilla Luddington who voiced the character in the game and also provided the motion capture. There was also a Tomb Raider movie reboot which starred Alicia Vikander. The reboot was stylistically different from the original movies which featured Angelina Jolie and was closer in style to the rebooted video game.
In any case, we’ll have to wait for an official date from Netflix so don’t hold your breath just yet at seeing its release anytime soon.
