Tomb Raider: The Trilogy is a rare short film produced back in 1998 for the grand reveal of Tomb Raider 3. The inspired short film was shown only once at the event and has not seen the light of day since.
The reveal was held in London’s Natural History Museum , the museum was considered the perfect place as this was thought to best represent Lara’s continued contribution to the preservation and discovery of some of the world’s rarest and most precious relics.
The footage comes courtesy of producer Janey de Nordwall, who was only recently able to get her hands on the original digital edition of the short film. De Nordwall received a BAFTA for her interpretation of this surreal concept. Does Lara live in our world… Or do we live in hers?
Tomb Raider: The Trilogy truly captures the spirit of the iconic series and was portrayed brilliantly through a twisted detective-noir-esque short story. 2016 represents 20 years of Tomb Raider – according to Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics this is just the start.
There will be plenty more secret nuggets of Lara Croft nostalgia to come. This year is set to be a veritable cacophony of never before seen Tomb Raider memorabilia.
