About this new Evangelion film
Shinji Ikari is back in Evangelion 3.0+1.01 Thrice Upon a Time. After losing his will to life, he’s cast adrift, but the place he ends up teaches him what it means to hope. Finally, the Instrumentality Project is launched, and he will make one final valiant effort to avert the Final Impact. Here’s the official synopsis of the film as given by Amazon Prime:
“Mari, Ritsuko and Maya search for some defense technology in the city’s ruins, only to be attacked by a group of never-before-seen, four-footed Evas. Meanwhile, Shinji, Asuka, and Rei despondently wander the outskirts of Tokyo-3 after the events of the last film. The former two begin to grow closer together and realize their feelings. But they have to turn their focus to the matter at hand: Unit-13 has been restarted, leading to one final showdown between Shinji and Gendo.”
The new Evangelion film will be available in ten different languages: English, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, and Italian.

In addition, the first three films will also be available on Amazon Prime Video: Evangelion: 1.0 You Are [Not] Alone, Evangelion: 2.0 You Can [Not] Advance, and Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo.
