As for the other Laras people are mentioning in this thread, none of then are canon to the games, if anything they are Level 2 canon.
i mean sure but that doesnt dismiss their entire existence

And the Lara from the cartoons?

I know nothing about spin-off Laras. In my head is:

Classic: TR1-5

AoD. I know she's the same character as CL, but she feels different for me.

LU.

Anniversary. Lara from Legend and Underworld do not have the same attitude, but Anniversary feels completely different, possibly because she's not speaking to Zip.

Reboot.

No it was the opposite, they said LC Lara has no ties to LAU Lara.

She has a different personality, but she doesn't exist in a separate universe. Different Lara's mean different universe and currently we have 8 separate Tomb Raider universes with a character named Lara Croft.

Games:

Core Lara (1-6, cursed sword, starring Lara Croft, The Prophecy)

LAU

Reboot

LC Lara (GoL, ToO, GO)

Movies:

Jolie

Vikander

Books:

Top Cow

Other media:

Animated TV series

Basically it's still 3 Laras then, i guess Classic - LAU - Reboot. Everything else can be treated as non-canon to the main series.

Even if some random guy that worked on the menu transitions for the LC games said that, it's still clearly LAU Lara. I see the timelines as:

Core classic Lara - TR1-AoD (incl their GBA, Sky Gamestar and mobile games, I guess.)
LAU Lara from Legend - GoL - Relic Run - Go
Reboot Lara from the games
Jolie Lara
Vikander Lara
Top Cow comics
Re/Visioned is either a cherry picked cartoon version of LAU or classic Lara depending on the episode, or a new one. I've never watched them fully so it's hard to tell.

But ToO, GoL, Relic Run and Go Lara are definitely LAU Lara. Same grunts, same visual gear, same VA in ToO and GoL.

I remember seeing (can't remember where) that the Lara Croft games were the same Lara as LAU.

Indeed. I have never taken that 'LC Lara has nothing to do with LAU Lara' comment seriously.

If LAUra and LC games Lara were two different Lara's then why are they voiced by the same voice actress? Especially since Keeley Hawes hasn't done voice over work for any other video game other than Tomb Raider and Lara Croft.
