IT’S HERREEEE! Well, almost. On Friday, Evangelion 3.0+1.0, the final films of Hideaki Anno’s Rebuild of Evangelion franchise, premieres stateside on Amazon Prime. Although we don’t get the theatrical release, we are getting a super quick turnaround on this movie, which opened in Japan just a few months ago, and a dub, too, with much of the original cast returning!
To celebrate, we want to watch the movie with you! And we have a couple of ways to do that. The most interactive is through a watch party. You’ll need to join us on two platforms—Facebook, where you’ll be able to watch our man Samuru watching the movie (and can comment as we stream together) and Amazon Prime itself, through which you’ll be able to watch the film. Be sure to subscribe to our FB event so that you’ll get notice on Friday, August 13th at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. Central when we go live.
You’ll also need an Amazon Prime account to actually watch. Head to the bottom of this page for a free trial to Amazon Prime Video, if you need it.
If you don’t use Facebook or would rather not see Samuru’s beautiful face (he really is a good looking Cuban dude, though), then follow along on Twitter! Josh will be giving his always hilarious and insightful impressions as he starts live tweeting an hour later. You can also follow along as he watches a separate stream on prime. He’ll go live at 9 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. Central on Friday, August 13th.
The links to watch the Prime video will be made available throughout our social media platforms shortly before the air times. Follow along and enjoy with us as we see this final, historic Evangelion film!
