In July last year it was confirmed that the Tomb Raider sequel, starring Alicia Vikander as the iconic Lara Croft, is not will be done.
The Oscar-winning actress who played Lara in the 2018 cinematic reboot (found on Amazon in case you haven’t seen it), will never dress the role of the most famous archaeologist ever.
The news has certainly stunned fans, as plans for a follow-up to the 2018 reboot – which was to be directed by Misha Green – weren’t approved by MGM before the deadline. agreements.
Now, while the players are waiting religiously for the first images and maybe a trailer for the new dedicated video game to the saga, here are some storyboards of the never born cinematic sequel.
As also reported by Eurogamer.net , artist Jake Lunt Davies showed his users some images showing Lara’s house – the famous Croft Manor – on a dark and stormy night.
Meanwhile, in the park of the villa several shady-looking characters are depicted while planning their infiltration into the manor.
Although there is nothing confirmed in these plates (visible below), given the ending of 2018’s Tomb Raider it is safe to assume that these individuals belong to the Trinity , the militarist order and main antagonist faction of Lara referred to in the first film.

In a later tweet, Davies said he has other storyboards from the sequel , but he can’t share them with the community.
At the beginning of the year it was reported that MGM lost the rights to the Tomb Raider films: the studio reportedly had until May of this year to proceed with a sequel, but apparently it all came to nothing .
As a result, a large number of Hollywood studios are currently bidding on the rights to a future adaptation of Tomb Raider, which will be a ‘ full reboot ‘.
Staying on the subject, only a few days ago it came to the news that the Embracer Group’s maxi acquisition of Tomb Raider , Deus Ex and many other IPs has been officially completed .
But not only that: someone also had fun making a 2D fan remake of a classic episode of the franchise, really beautiful to see.
