Tomb Raider is 25 years old in 2021, and to celebrate, Netflix is making a Tomb Raider anime series.

It's not slated for release until sometime after the Tomb Raider 25th anniversary, admittedly, but we do have the initial announcement and some additional news to tide us over until then.

If you've been keeping up with Netflix's growing roster of original anime, you're likely familiar with the team behind the Tomb Raider anime already. Don't expect anything from Eidos' original Tomb Raider games, though. The anime series is firmly rooted in the reboot trilogy.
