          OG Lara's parents cut her off from the family and the associated wealth when she decided to be an adventurer, because she is the black sheep that brings shame to a proper family. She hates them in return with the same passion. OG Lara is wealthy because she writes books about her adventures.

          Because badass Latinas were a dime a dozen in fricking movies at the time and they were since the 80s. And countries making movies about their own people were seen as normal, as it shoudl be. As it still be for every non white country, btw

    During early development of the first Tomb Raider, the character was going to be a latina like Lara Cruz and you can still sort of tell, because early Lara Croft has brown lipstick and pencil-drawn eye brows.

    I would laugh if they went so far as to actually rename the character back to Lara Cruz for the tv show.

      All of this is a part of the promo push for the next AAA game reboot in which they want to introduce a "Unified" Lara (and yes it sounds moronic). All of this upcoming media will be a part of this overarching canon. They are trying to make an eternal media franchise which will exist "forever" in various forms and ideally without reboots from now on.

      Embracer Group, the current copyright holder, is in dire financial situation. Lara and TRs are one of the few franchises they've bought in the 2020-22 buying spree that are in any real way bankable. Hence they sell her as much as possible, because the alternative is going down under.
      As to why they aren't giving you the original Lara:

      Aside what the other anon said already:
      They own the entire library of Squenix-era graphics, renders, 3D models and what not. They DO NOT own stuff made prior to Squenix, since Squenix didn't own that either. In other words: they are selling and renting what they've got, rather than making it.
      Embracer Group is in a financial free-fall for past year. They are desperate to squeeze every single cent they can from the shit they already bought, and spending the least amount of money possible in the process.

        Played the 2D game when 3D was becoming hot shit. Had the market by the balls during the 2MB and 4MB days, let it slip due to bad business decisions and other APIs catching up.

        You have to remember that when Mechwarrior 2 came out, there were different versions for literally every graphics api 3dfx/PowerVR/ATI/Matrox/S3/DX

        On this note, what companies that are currently major players in the world of PC hardware and software do you expect to be forgotten irrelevant have-beens in the year, let's say, 2050?

        Or this is far too unpredictable to tell?

          It's gonna be AMD. When Intel finally figures out their driver shit and gets their graphics cards working, AMD is toast. Intel is absolutely monolithically massive. It takes AMD a decade to get an idea to market and Intel makes great products and then promptly screws it up and drops them every six months.

      You know what is genuinely great about this? I mean, in all seriousness, apart from the model being (probably) attractive (too low quality to tell)

      "This" Lara, even when it's cosplay that doesn't try to roleplay the character, is and acts FUN.

      Classic Lara was having FUN. She was a very charming character.

      Each and every next reboot / adaptation / iteration tried to turn the story and the character into some moody sulky mess, more and more and more. Family values, protection of important stuff, great responsibilities and such.

      The model in this short clip, even though this was never in a million years intended to be super faithful or anything, "accidentally" encapsulates the OG Lara far better than any of the later official reboots.

          I have played all the existing mainline games. Unfortunately.
          The newest iteration is insufferable as a character and, to make matters worse, she is an entirely different character from who Lara was, in a myriad ways. The only thing they kept was the name and the birth month and date.

          Classic Lara was a very interesting and very fun character. Then she was dragged through dirt by the IP owners responsible for the next reboots to sell these next reboots, and because the general public isn't knowledgeable about franchises, characters and lores, they very happily ate it all up because it was presented in well-written, well-directed ways.

          > Cup size is up for debate tho but the bank? Nah the bank has definitely gotten bigger.

        There were many women in the fandom back then who liked the Classic Lara for what she is and for "how" she is. Obviously gaming wasn't "cool" among the normies back then, so these women skewed geeky, but still, a 40 year old woman can genuinely like that kind of Lara.

    They should let men write these things and bring back Good Lara (the original). She’s an action movie protagonist. She never needed to be “fleshed out” with a dramatic gritty origin demonstrating her feminine perseverance or whatever. She steals treasure, slaughters small armies of men and packs of dinosaurs and looks hot doing it. Women have a hard time writing her because this tends to be outside most women’s areas of interest. Lara Croft is conceptually by and for men.

      Also,
      >Jolie was the best we’ll ever get
      Jolie was too young in 2000/2002 to play a variation of Classic Lara. A more mature Jolie would have worked better. Even Jolie from Mr and Mrs Smith from a few years later looks better as Lara.

      From that era, Kate Beckinsale and Catherine Zeta Jones would have made excellent Classic Laras. Kate would still pull her off as late as 2010-ish.

      Jolie wasn't bad but her accent was dodgy and unfortunately the writing for her two films was b-grade at best. Her Lara felt like a parody of the games'.

      Rhona Mitra was the original live promo model for Lara. I'd liked to have seen her play the role once she'd gotten a few years experience acting - she was excellent in Strike Back.

          I think if it's not an English actress from a posh background it'll never sound right to begin with. Making her look right (with fake boobage and auburn wig) isn't difficult so the actress's hair colour isn't a problem.

          English, tallish (5'9" or thereabouts), and athletic looking is the starting point. We're looking for a younger version of Kate Beckinsale/Catherine Zeta Jones/Felicity Jones/Rhona Mitra/Imogen Poots/Keira Knightly/Emily Blunt/Diana Rigg/Joana Lumley/Mary Ure.

    On a tangent, I am deeply saddened that modern pop culture simply cannot accept larger-than-life heroes that the audience can never even dream of becoming in ten lifetimes, and always knocks them down a peg or wants to embark on a journey of "origin stories" and whatnot to show that they are human just like you, viewer!

    They do it to so many characters, even the Uncharted movie was about a young inexperienced Drake.

    Is there really a demand for characters who are toned down so that they can be "wow he/she is just like me, a normal normie who can only relate to toned down characters"?

        Yeah that's probably the larger overarching theme of what I pointed out. There seems to be little demand, or little supply, of "out there" escapist experiences in mainstream pop culture. Every character and story is now relatable. This didn't escape Lara, which is why I wrote that thing above. In the latest reboot she is now SUPER relatable and "someone you can maybe dream to be realistically", and Rhianna Pratchett was on record saying that this is exactly what she set out to achieve.

          At this point I imagine that a lot of the recent replies here in the thread come from one person (you) going through its entirety, the same person who posted stuff about the Embracer group 15 mins ago, but still, to respond to this specific question: for example, pretty much everyone everywhere, from fans of any Laras to haters to random normies, considers the COD Lara's face to be ugly. So that's a data point. That's something to consider. That's a test drive through a harmless guest appearance.
          It's like how literally everyone online thought that the first official image from the upcoming Snow White & Seven Dwarfs is fricking awful and that the dwarves look terrible. I guarantee you that the studio took note of that and is fixing it, even though they'll never officially acknowledge it. The shifted release date is all but a confirmation.

      Why is this point of view so popular whenever there is a live action adaptation of some animation or game? Voice actors are voice actors. The fact that they did a good job with the voice of the character doesn't mean they'll do a good job with embodying them in live action. Even if they happen to be actors.

      Why would Lara be a protestant of all things.

      Neneh Cherry Originally the inspiration for Lara
      But there been other also such as Angelina Jolie, Rhona Mitra ect

      Rhona Mitra would make a decent Lara (and yes I know she was the official Lara model for one of the games, but I mean as an actress), but in that case just go for Kate Beckinsale. Late 00s Kate would absolutely slay in the role. I think I've never seen Kate being visibly athletic in any of her existing roles, but as long as she wouldn't mind getting in proper shape, she'd be the best option among the well-known names.

      It's much worse, anon: the next AAA Tomb Raider game will feature a unification of canons, where they will pretend that the previous three existing game versions of Lara are one and the same person, despite the obvious contradictions. The upcoming anime and the live action series are meant to be a "bridge" from the 2013-2018 trilogy to the next AAA TR games.

        >the next AAA Tomb Raider game
        Cancelled.
        Embracer over-buy franchises and studios and is now selling whatever they can and cancelling whatever they can to stay afloat. Anything they can outsource as franchise holder is good, since they get only income with zero risk and own investment - hence why the anime is still a thing (even if Netflix in turn considers canning it) and why series is still a thing.
        But there is no "next game". And most likely never will be. It's still a wonder the remaster of 1-3 happened at all, but it was a pretty cheap affair to arrange. It also makes zoomer seethe, because WASD controls just don't work (and not because the games weren't written with them in mind), so it gets extra mileage out of it.

        t. it's my job to know things about TRs

          I don't see how this can explain the remaster release and the inclusion of the very clearly Unified Lara that I mentioned into Call Of Duty as a guest character. Also, unless I missed something, you probably can't find the following in public sources just yet, but I happen to know (no proofs, sorry) that there are negotiations for including her as a guest in the current Mortal Kombat in one of the upcoming DLC character packs, with the same fusion of previous Laras.
          All of this very clearly looks like testing the waters character-design-wise for me.

            VERY cheap to make, since all they did was minor tweaking and AI graphic correction did 90% of the workload. It cost them less than 5 mil to make it happen, while justified charging 30 bucks for decades old games and make bank on it, since they are actually half-decent (the games are great, the remaster is half-decent).
            >inclusion of the very clearly Unified Lara that I mentioned into Call Of Duty as a guest character
            Quick side buck made by selling rights to the character. Same reason why there were fricking Hero Wars ads with Lara

              The Call Of Duty Lara, and the Hero Wars Lara, combine features of Classic Lara with certain accessories that are very charateristic of the 2013 Lara, like her very recognizable hairstyle and the green jade pendant thing. This isn't random, this is deliberate.

              >Quick side buck made by selling rights to the character.
              Why didn't this happen previously, then? I mean, not like way back (obviously Classic Lara advertised a whole bunch of shit), but in the previous decade or so. The floodgates were broken very recently with all these guest appearances.

                Because the franchise wasn't owned previously by a near-bankrupt conglomerate, but one of the most well-off publishers? And said previous owner are the same people who made nu-Lara, so they had even less incentive to provide any other version than their own. The only fricking reason why we have "overexposure" of Lara and TR now is because the current owner of the IP is in dire financial need. That's literally it. They don't care about you, the fandom or catering to anyone or anything. They need every single dollar they can get from the IP to simply survive.

        It will just be another ugly nuLara with some classic gimmick and reference to old stuff that looks, plays and feels nothing like Lara or Tomb Raider.
        And again it will flop beacuse nobody wants that and you cannot manifacture iconicity.
        and even if they were aiming for a thoughtful unification, it would't work because they are incompatible characters. Unifying Lara with nuLara is like unifying Superman and Jimmy Olsen, or like Lara getting cancer

      Not on people who remember the previous iterations, but the 2013 game, especially considering the substantial 5 year gap, pulled AN ABSOLUTE FRICKTON of completely new crowds of people who had never played a TR game before and only heard "bad" things like "old Lara was nothing but two breasts and a pistol" (guess why such articles started popping up in particularly huge amounts sometime around 2011). Also consider that this was the first time in videogame history when gaming became "cool" in the eyes of normies for the first time. The entire pre-existing fanbase of the franchise was intentionally replaced with sooo much new blood. There is now a generation of people whose entire pop cultural reference for Tomb Raider is the canon of 2013 onwards.

      >I would unironically like a tv show with the story from Angel of Darkness.
      Long before the TV series announcement, years ago, I was brainstorming a purely hypothetical TV series for Classic Lara, but tweaked to be a bit more grounded in the *events* and the general logic while keeping the character recognizable. Make it not like a cartoon, but something that doesn't look cringy with IRL actors. Not an adaptation of the existing stories of the games, but "what other adventures might be there" for this tweaked-but-still-Classic Lara. Just for fun. It wasn't a lengthy Word .doc, just a part of some online discussions.

      My idea is to do a Watson and to start when Lara, aged ~28, hires Zip, to be her hacker / tech support, initially for a specific thing but then finding him useful and offering him to stick around. You get introduced to what she does through his perspective, which is initially limited but then he learns more and so does the viewer. The first season might be all "in the field", in the second one you introduce the manor and meet Winston in person, etc. Turns out, Lara is a boring heiress on the surface but actually operates in the dark market underworld of antiquities, where things are mostly(ish) explainable and are interesting from a historical perspective, but every once in a while there is something inexplicable.

      With a full carte blanche, I'd do guest-episode crossovers with other stuff in moderation. Pairing her with James Bond could be very fun. Ilsa Faust from MI5 (specifically from Rogue Nation) is a good starting reference point of an enigmatic woman with some unclear agenda of her own who accidentally bursts into the life of a secret agent who is doing his own thing. Also, a Dirk Pitt crossover.

      Zip is a black hat hacker so it's not like he would particularly judge what Lara does, but his perspective / alt angle could be fun for playing with the morally grey nature of Lara. She is fascinating, but a criminal, but fascinating,but...
