Tomb Raider Coming to Netflix as an Anime Series


Netflix is making good on its promise to invest in anime, and it will do so soon with a very big adaptation.

A new report has gone live from the entertainment giant concerning its partnership with Legendary. The pair are coming together to develop a Tomb Raider anime following work on Pacific Rim: The Black.

“The most iconic heroine in video games is jumping to animation! Tomb Raider is a new anime series from Legendary following Lara Croft after the events of the video-game reboot trilogy,” the logline reads.

Netflix has tapped Tasha Huo to write and executive produce the Tomb Raider series. Dmitri M. Johnson, Stephan Bugaj, Howard Bliss, and Jacob Robinson will also oversee the series as producers.

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
