Netflix has revealed a teaser video for Tomb Raider: The Legend Of Lara Croft, an animated series set after the games of the Tomb Raider Survivor Trilogy. 

In addition to the sneak peek, it was announced that the series will premiere sometime in 2024 and that Powerhouse Animation (Castlevania) is the animation studio for the show.

Netflix’s plans for a Tomb Raider animated show were previously announced in 2021 with Tasha Huo as writer and executive producer and Dmitri M. Johnson, Stephan Bugaj, Howard Bliss, and Jacob Robinson as executive producers. The Survivor Trilogy games, which serve as a grittier reboot of the well-known action-adventure video game series, were released between 2013 and 2018.

The plot of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the third entry of the Survivor Trilogy, is described as:

As Lara Croft races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, she must become the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.

The first Tomb Raider game was released in 1996 for Sega Saturn, MS-Dos, and PlayStation. After 2003’s widely panned Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness, the series’ main developer switched from Core Design to Crystal Dynamics. The Survivor trilogy was preceded by another reboot trilogy (released between 2006 to 2009) that is now called The Tomb Raider Trilogy, with the second entry being a remake of the original Tomb Raider

While the Tomb Raider games are traditionally third-person affairs, the non-mainline entries have utilized other camera perspectives and genres.
