The official website for the new Evangelion films began streaming a promotional reel for the Blu-ray Disc and DVD release of the Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo film on Wednesday.

The third part in Hideaki Anno and Khara's four-film version of Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion series will ship on Blu-ray Disc and DVD next Wednesday. Similar to the previous films, the third film has been renamed "Evangelion: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo" for its home video release.

Both the Blu-ray and the DVD will contain the 95-minute feature itself and the 10-minute, 7-second "Kyoshinhei Tokyo ni Arawaru" (Giant God Warrior Appears in Tokyo) short. The live-action tokusatsu (special-effects) short was developed by Anno, produced by Studio Ghibli, and screened with Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo film in theaters. Both home video versions will also have the Rebuild of Evangelion:3.33 documentary, the teaser trailer, the full trailer, the television commercials, and the "3.33 ver." of the dialogue recording script.

The Blu-ray will have the Japanese soundtrack in Linear PCM 5.1ch and Linear PCM 2.0ch, while the DVD will have the Japanese soundtack in Dolby Digital/5.1ch and Dolby Digital/2.0 Surround. (The extras on the Blu-ray and DVD will be in Linear PCM 2.0ch and Dolby Digital/2.0 Surround, respectively.) Both versions will have Japanese subtitles.

King Records will offer the Blu-ray for 6,090 yen (about US$66) at retail, while the DVD version will retail for 5,985 yen (US$65). Each will come in Digipak packaging with a special box and a 66-page booklet. The first copies of each will also bundle an original soundtrack CD with Hikaru Utada's theme song "Sakura Nagashi."
