Funimation Works Directly with Khara on Evangelion 3.33 Home Video Release
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Funimation announced on Tuesday that it is working directly with Hideaki Anno's Studio Khara for the upcoming Evangelion: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo home video release. Studio Khara has decided it will create its own special subtitle tracks for the release.
Eleven Arts and FUNimation Entertainment screened the theatrical print of Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo in theaters across the United States and Canada in January. Funimation planned to release the film on Blu-ray and DVD on February 18 but noted that the date was subject to change. Manga Entertainment planned to release the film on DVD and Blu-ray in the United Kingdom on March 31 but it was delayed until February 2015. Manga Entertainment alluded that the delay was due to fears of importation.
The third film in Hideaki Anno's four-part remake of Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series earned more than 5.1 billion yen during its theater run. While the first film hewed closely to the original television series, the second film went in a different direction, and the third film went still further in its own storyline.
