August 13 is the premiere of “Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.01 Thrice Upon a Time,” the last film in the long-running Evangelion series and the film concluding the “Rebuild of Evangelion” quartet, released in 2007.
It should be noted that the Prime Video version of the latest Evangelion movie is not the version that was released in theaters in March of this year, but a slightly modified version released in June of this year under the title “Evangelion 3.0 +1.01”.

The movie will also mark the end of Hideki Anno’s involvement in Evangelion, a franchise he has worked in one way or another for nearly half his life. Although Anno is best known for his work in animation, he has also directed live-action films such as the critically acclaimed “Shin Godzilla” (2016).
“Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.01 Thrice Upon a Time” was the top franchise movie in Japan, managing to raise US$92 million upon its release in March of this year, an even more impressive amount considering what happened at the height of the pandemic. .
In addition to the original Japanese, “Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.01 Thrice Upon a Time” will be dubbed into 10 languages, including Spanish, English, French, German, Portuguese and Italian. In addition, it will have subtitles in 28 languages, including those listed above.
