Probably because teen Lara had just come off Wonder Woman to ride the coat tails of that movie a bit. It's a shame because Maisie looked just like Alicia. I would have chosen Gideon Adlon for teen Lara. Technically she's not a teen but she could pass.

Yeah! She would have been a better choices than the chick from WW.

The actress that they went with looked nothing like Alicia.
I totally agree, it was a shame expecially because the youngest version of Lara (the one that gets the necklace) was perfect as Tonyrobinson said.

What a fantastic choice, she definitely could pass as a younger Alicia Lara. And even looks like an older version of the young young Lara too.

There weren't any deleted scenes (available to view) for the 2018 film were there?

No deleted scenes to be viewed but from what I have sourced to be filmed and not included where:

Interior Manor scenes with Lara (Wilton House Instagram)
Extended scenes with Sophie at the gym (official stills)
Scenes with Sophie, her daughter and Lara (TV spot)
More scenes of young Lara with a toy bow (Game informer set report)
A beach altercation with an island merc (official still and B Roll footage)

Alternative scenes featuring Lara and her motorcycle instead of the white car at the end. (BTS footage)

Lara has an extended fight on the ladder above the chasm of souls with Mathias. (Art book)

Also on one of the stunt actresses Instagram we scene them rehearsing a fight using dual axes weeks before filming. My guess this was the scene were Lara fights with the ax only it was more brutal in rehearsal and prolonged with an extra ax.

Speculative:

For the longest time they'd had someone in the cast list as being Himiko's hand maiden, this was backed by the actresses page on the talent site Mandy if I recall correctly.

It could be possible they'd filmed a small flashback scene inside the Tomb which makes sense considering we are told that Himiko was buried with her hand maidens.

It also makes sense why the intro would get used twice in the film instead of showing us two alternating scenes. My guess is that it was probably filmed and ditched last minute because the footage wasn't good enough or it slowed the pace.

Also if I recall correctly there was supposed to be a female merc in the cast and she was posting on Instagram for a while during the shoot.

The thing is for every film shooted you start with all the raw footage to form a non edited version of the movie sometimes this one is longer than 2 hours and then the editing start, it's when all the scenes are chosen to make the final result. So it's possible we have see some scenes from this raw footage.

There's also the test screening with at least 2 versions of the movie maybe some scenes we have seen are a part of one version particulary.

For a much more understanding of the process



Also Warner are terrible to make bonus in their releases usually.

I hope they’ll release the deleted scenes, eventually. Maybe in anticipation for the sequel, later on that is, they’ll rerelease it with some new extras? One can hope.
