Now Netflix has an animated Tomb Raider adaptation in the works

This latest Tomb Raider adaptation is being produced in collaboration with Legendary Entertainment and will pick up after the events of Lara’s recent video game trilogy, developed by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos-Montréal. Exactly how far after after those events is currently unclear, meaning we could end up with anything from the prequel trilogy’s perpetually anguished Lara to the considerably more charismatic protagonist of earlier games.
