Toonami's month of movies reaches its climax this weekend with a screening of Toonami of Evangelion 1.11 & 2.22 this weekend. And, with that on the near horizon, FUNimation has reiterated their statement concerning the status of the long awaited third Rebuild movie.
What is the status of the home video release of Evangelion 3.33?
We are working directly with the Japanese studio and the original creator on the upcoming Evangelion 3.33 home video release. This is a unique opportunity that presented itself to us, and since the plot for Evangelion 3.33 is so different from previous story lines, we are thrilled that the creator has asked to be so heavily involved in this project. Studio Khara has even decided that they would like to create their own special subtitle tracks for the release! We thank you for your continued patience as we work to confirm a release date. Please keep an eye on our social channels and our website for more updates!
