Tomb Raider: The Legend of Lara Croft is coming to Netflix on October 10, as confirmed recently by a new trailer showcasing the all-animated series. The series has been announced for 2021 and we finally have the lowdown on who will be voicing Lara Croft in this production.

It stars Hayley Atwell, best known for her work as Peggy Carter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In online comments, fans of the Tomb Raider franchise praised Netflix for their casting choice, sounding a strong consensus that Atwell provides the perfect vocal representation of the iconic heroine.

The Legend of Lara Croft

On October 10, 2024, a new Lara Croft will appear on Netflix in a unique animated series voiced by Hayley Atwell. Most recently, Lara Croft was played by Camilla Ludington (regular), who assumed the identity of the game-based character from the 2013 reboot known as Tomb Raider. She starred again in Rise of the Tomb Raider and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

On the big screen, many would argue that Angelina Jolie’s role as the video game legend is unbeatable until the end, but Alicia Vikander did a fine job in 2018’s Tomb Raider.

Now, the mantle has been passed to Hayley Atwell, who voiced Lara Croft through eight episodes in the first season of The Legend of Lara Croft. Admittedly, this is another ‘reboot’ or reimagining of Lara Croft in another universe, but it’s one that fans are very excited about.
