The profoundly anticipated end to Hideaki Anno’s quadrilogy of Rebuild of Evangelion films is finally releasing outside of Japan one month from now on Amazon Prime Video. The original series, entitled Neon Genesis Evangelion, first aired in 1995 and is today generally viewed as quite possibly the most influential anime franchises of all time. The show was then rebooted in 2007 into a progression of movies called the Rebuild of Evangelion, with new passages releasing sporadically all through the past decade and a half. Although the fourth and final film of the series, Evangelion: 3.0+1.01 Thrice Upon a Time, released earlier this year in Japan, there was no word about an international release until today.
After long periods of quiet, Studio Khara has at last announced that the final Rebuild film will make a big appearance internationally on Amazon Prime Video on August 13. In addition to Thrice Upon a Time, the initial three Rebuild movies will also release on the platform as well. The movies will be available “in more than 240 nations and regions barring Japan.”
Thrice Upon a Time’s homegrown release in Japan end up being a record-breaking achievement, taking the best position as the most noteworthy netting film of 2021 in the country. Given Anno’s penchant for playing up secret and interest in his works, it’s a good idea that fans would want to see the finish of his vision finally happen as expected after fourteen years of theorizing and speculation. Presently, international audiences will finally have their patience rewarded as the whole quadrilogy makes its way onto Prime Video.
Since the release of the main Rebuild film, there’s been debate if it’s a reboot or a continuation of the original series. From the beginning, the movies may basically appear to be a retelling of the original series with a new coat of paint (and CGI). Nonetheless, there are in reality implies sprinkled all through the initial three movies that may loan belief to the “continuation” theory. In view of Anno’s narrating habits, almost certainly, the final Rebuild of Evangelion film will leave barely sufficient ambiguity to keep fans speculating for quite a long time to come.
