GKIDS has announced that it has acquired the North American theatrical, home video, and electronic sell-through rights for the Evangelion: 3.0+1.01: Thrice Upon A Time anime film. The company will screen the film in theaters in late 2022, then release it on home video at a later date.
The film opened in Japan in March 2021, and ranked #1 in its opening weekend. The film surpassed 10 billion yen (about US$74 million) in the Japanese box office. The film’s new Evangelion: 3.0+1.01 version began screening in June 2021 for the film’s “last run.” The new version contains “minor revisions” to some animation sequences, but does not change the film’s story.
The film deuted on the Amazon Prime Video service worldwide in August 2021. The film is available in Japanese, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Peninsular Spanish, Latin American Spanish, Chinese, Hindi, Korean, and English audio, as well as with subtitles in 28 languages.
