Evangelion 3.0+1.01 is heading to Amazon Prime Video exclusively in August. The highly anticipated final film in the Rebuild project will be launching outside Japan for the first time in just a few weeks. Evangelion 3.0+1.01 will launch globally on Amazon Prime Video on August 13. The previous three Evangelion Rebuild films – 1.11, 2.22 and 3.33 – will also be on Prime Video.

Evangelion 3.0+1.01 Thrice Upon A Time will be available to watch on Prime Video in 240 countries and territories.

Announcing the news, Brad Beale, vice president of worldwide content licensing for Prime Video, said: “The EVANGELION films have been thrilling fans for years and we know that there is a huge appetite around the world for the finale.

“I’m excited for Prime members worldwide to finally have the opportunity to watch the anime masterpiece EVANGELION:3.0+1.01 THRICE UPON A TIME, as well as the three previous films.”

While Hideaki Anno, the Evangelion creator, screenwriter and chief director, said: “I’d like to thank every Eva fan in the world for your continued support.

“We were looking for the best way to offer the movie to fans overseas as early as possible in a challenging situation with movie theatres during COVID-19, and are happy to have found Prime Video as a partner to stream it globally. We highly recommend watching it on a big TV screen for the best viewing experience.”

Evangelion 3.0+1.01 is a new version of the final Evangelion film, which brings with it some “minor revisions” to 3.0+1.0.

These slight tweaks will just be to animated sequences, not to any story content.

The updated version of the latest Evangelion film began airing in Japan on June 12.

The final Evangelion Rebuild film first opened in Japan on March 8, and was the number one box office film for its opening weekend.

During its first seven days the new Evangelion film earned US$3.4 million in IMAX theatres – which is the second highest opening IMAX week for a domestic film in Japan.

That was only behind the hugely successful Demon Slayer movie.

As of May 30, the final Evangelion movie has earned around US$78.65million.

It is the highest earning movie in the Evangelion series – both domestically and internationally.

The Evangelion Rebuild series has been an absolutely fascinating project.

What started off as a much better looking, accurate recreation of the critically acclaimed and hugely influential anime series from 1995 has gone on to diverge in plot quite significantly.

Will Evangelion 3.0+1.01 have a similar ending to End of Evangelion, or will Anno go down a very different route?

Eva fans outside of Japan thankfully don’t have long to wait to find out.

In case you’re wondering, here is the synopsis for Evangelion 3.0+1.01 Thrice Upon A Time.
