“I’d like to thank every Eva fan in the world for your continued support,” said Hideaki Anno, Creator, Screenwriter, and Chief Director. “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 Thrice Upon a Time is written by Anno and also hails from directors Kazuya Tsurumaki, Katsuichi Nakayama, and Mahiro Maeda. The anime film had its first premiere in Japan last March, where it became the highest-grossing in all of the Evangelion movies and was also the most-watched movie in Japanese theatres in 2021.
The blockbuster franchise is a Japanese anime pop culture phenomenon based on the story of Evangelion, an artificial human and multipurpose humanoid weapon, and the Angels, an unknown life-form that takes place after the Earth has been shattered by a cataclysmic event. The film features all original voice actors, including Megumi Ogata, Megumi Hayashibara, Yûko Miyamura, and uses the latest imaging technology to showcase the personalities and relationships of its unique characters as they fight for survival. It will be dubbed in 10 languages, including English, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, and Italian, and offer subtitles in 28 languages.
