While we鈥檙e still waiting on Netflix鈥檚 Pacific Rim anime series, the streaming service has announced that it鈥檚 also working on anime versions of Tomb Raider and Skull Island. Netflix is working with Legendary Television on all of those upcoming shows, and it follows a slew of anime announcements, including a Cyberpunk 2077 series, and a Resident Evil CG show (if you can call that anime). Gotta keep the weeb contingent happy, right?

Netflix says the Tomb Raider series will follow the events of Square Enix鈥檚 recent reboot trilogy, which leaves the door wide open for stories following a young Lara Croft. It鈥檒l be executive produced by Tasha Huo, who also worked on The Witcher: Blood Origin and Red Sonja. The Skull Island series, naturally, is based on the recent Kong film. It鈥檒l follow a shipwrecked group who finds themselves stuck on an island filled with monsters and, you guessed it, one big ape.
