The Tomb Raider Animation Series of Netflix will serve as a bridge between classic video games and those of Crystal Dynamics
Lara Croft is one of the most beloved video game characters in history. We met this intrepid adventurous in 1996, when the franchise was born that this 2021 celebrates a quarter of a century... there is nothing!
However, the development of the videogames of Tomb Raider was giving some tombs until Square Enix acquired rights in 2009, delegating at Crystal Dinamics the task of producing new games.
We speak clear of the Tomb Raider Tomb Raider that include the game of 2013, Rise of the Tomb Raider in 2015 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider in 2018.
The Tomb Raider s survival trilogy narrates the origins of Lara Croft, before becoming the expert adventurer we met in the original video games.
Naturally, there is a small gap between the original games and this trilogy, but it seems that said gap has the days counted.
The next Tomb Raider animation series that will come to Netflix has as a commitment to close that vacuum on the time line, definitely joining the classic videogames with the new ones.
This has been commented Tasha Huo, writer and producer of the Netflix series, through a video published on the Tomb Raider Youtube channel (via Collider).
Huo emphasizes that the series will take the character that we leave in the trilogy of survival to become the legendary adventurous that we met in 1996.
Hayley Atwell (Impossible Mission 7, Captain America: The First Avenger) will be responsible for lending voice to Lara Croft in this series developed by Powerhouse Animation Studios, with the collaboration of Legendary and Netflix.
The series will include characters like Zip and Jonah, to those who will pay voice Allen Maldonaldo and Earl Baylon, respectively.
In addition, the sequel to the Tomb Raider film of Alicia Vikander is in pre-production phase, after suffering several delays because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
What do you think that the Tomb Raider animation series is going to close the blank spaces between classic and recent videogames?
