Revisioned: Tomb Raider (trademarked as Re\Visioned: Tomb Raider) is a ten-part animated series based on the Tomb Raider series. It was distributed through the online video game service GameTap from July 10, 2007 to November 13, 2007. The series consists of various animation and comic book talent's renditions of Lara Croft, presented in the form of animated short films. The series was originally intended to conclude on August 23, 2007, but the date for the final episode was changed to November 13, 2007.


Even though the styles of the episodes vary, the voice actress for Lara Croft, Minnie Driver, remains constant throughout the series. The main criticisms[weasel words] that the series has received are that the varying animation styles are somewhat confusing and that the storylines of the episodes tend to be rather thin. While the production team had great creative freedom, they were given a basic guideline for the character by the developers so that Lara would not do anything out of character.[1]

Revisioned: Tomb Raider is the first season of the GameTap TV original animated series Revisioned, which explored and re-imagined well-known video game franchises.[2]
