The newest version of Evangelion 3.0 was released in Japanese theaters in January 2021
Earlier this year, the third Evangelion film, Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, got a 4K remaster built for IMAX screens across Japan, being released under the new title Evangelion 3.333. Now, it was announced that the rebuilt version will be released on 4K Blu-ray and regular Blu-ray on August 25.
Under the supervision of Hideaki Anno, Evangelion 3.333 was completely reshot for 4K, using updated technology that wasn't around when the film first released in 2012. While the overall story wasn't changed, some scenes were altered as well as some visuals updated to be more in line with Evangelion 3.0+1.0.
