    GKIDS, celebrating its 15th anniversary as producer and distributor of award-winning and artist-driven animation from around the world, with home entertainment distribution from Shout! Studios, announced it will issue the critically acclaimed fourth and final installment of the new theatrical “Rebuild” editions of the EVANGELION franchise in an expansive 4K UHD Collector’s Edition Set, Standard Edition Blu-ray; and as a digital download-to-own. To celebrate the acclaimed feature’s home entertainment release, GKIDS will be bringing the feature back to cinemas in select markets this fall. 

    EVANGELION:3.0+1.01 THRICE UPON A TIME (シン・エヴァンゲリオン劇場版𝄇, Shin Evangerion Gekijōban) was released in Japanese theatres in 2021, where it was a critical and box office success, becoming the highest grossing film of the year with ¥10.28 billion (~85 million) in local box office.

    The film is also part of "Shin Japan Heroes Universe" (シン・ジャパン・ヒーローズ・ユニバース, Shin Japan Hīrōzu Yunibāsu), a partnership between Toho, Khara, Tsuburaya Productions, and Toei to create a dream collaboration between four of Japan's most famous "heroes" in various marketing and merchandising campaigns. The other movies in this project are SHIN GODZILLA (シン・ゴジラ, Shin Gojira, 2016), SHIN ULTRAMAN (シン・ウルトラマン, Shin Urutoraman, 2022) and SHIN KAMEN RIDER (シン・仮面ライダー, Shin Kamen Raidā, 2023).

    Created by Hideaki Anno, the NEON GENESIS EVANGELION franchise is considered one of the most influential animated sagas of all time. Since the 1995 premiere of the original television series, the story of teenager Shinji Ikari has remained one of the most iconic titles in animation history, and a global pop culture phenomenon. 

    Following the conclusion of the beloved 1995 television show, the legendary project received new life as the EVANGELION movie series. The theatrical film series began with EVANGELION:1.11 YOU ARE (NOT) ALONE.(2007), followed by EVANGELION:2.22 YOU CAN (NOT) ADVANCE. (2009), EVANGELION:3.33 YOU CAN (NOT) REDO. (2012), and culminating in the finale EVANGELION:3.0+1.01 THRICE UPON A TIME.
