Are you now looking forward to the release of this great follow-up installment? It’s time to talk about it in light of recent events. In the video game Tomb Raider, the courageous and self-reliant young lady Lara Croft sets out on a dangerous mission to discover the reasons behind the unexplained disappearance of her father, who was an adventurer.
Before Alicia Vikander explained what was going on with the movie, it was widely believed that this 2018 film will be followed by a sequel. On May 14, 2021, Misha Green announced on her official Twitter account that the first draft of the script for Tomb Raider: Obsidian has been completed. The title of the film will be Tomb Raider: Obsidian.
There were a number of events that took place, and there was a lot of consternation around the movie. Let’s investigate what Alicia had to say about it, shall we?

Alicia Vikander Shed Some Light On The Sequel
Since 2019, the script has been being worked on for the movie. That has obviously been the case for quite some time. In the previous year, Alicia made the following declaration: “It’s not greenlit, but the script is in the making, and I think everyone is excited, and I would love to revisit Lara again.” The audience was given reason to have optimism.
The fresh information that Alicia gave has actually caused confusion among the audience members regarding her appearance. Things have become more complicated as a result of Amazon’s acquisition of MGM. But what exactly is taking place here?
Vikander further by saying, “With the MGM and Amazon takeover, I have no clue.” At this point, it’s a form of politics. I believe that Misha and I have been prepared, but at this point, to tell you the truth, it is kind of up to somebody else. I had been looking forward to revealing it to everyone. I am really impressed by what she has accomplished with Lovecraft Country.
When Alicia mentioned politics, what exactly did she mean? Her perspective is that the most likely culprit is politics taking place behind the scenes. Amazon paid a staggering $8.5 billion in March of this year to acquire MGM, the production company that was responsible for the initial Tomb Raider game.
However, it is quite clear that Alicia and Misha will participate in the subsequent installment.
What Did Alicia Vikander Say Before?
Well, before this latest update Alicia revealed something regarding the sequel and confirmed that Misha is drafting a draft.
“I really hope that we get the chance to make another movie. We had planned on shooting this movie, but it had to be postponed due to the epidemic. It has been one and a half years since those ideas were originally conceived, but Misha Green is now on board, and she is currently drafting the script.
It’s fairly incredible when you think about it—we’re the same age! I was thinking, “Oh, I’m just now on a Zoom with a really great woman who I think has done some incredible work.” and then I realized that I was already on the Zoom call. It would be so fantastic if we got the chance to go and make this extremely big-ass film together, going to kick some ass in front of the camera as well as behind the camera, you know?”
On September 23, 2021, Green answered to a supporter who had asked about the progress of the movie on her Twitter account. In her response, Green gave the impression that she was still planning to direct her own script.
Nope. I've been a fan of Tomb Raider since I first played the games back when Playstations were grey. And writing is the house of my best accomplishments. I'm saving all my nerves for directing it! 😊 https://t.co/gocSVo0bUj
