Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0: Thrice Upon A Time is the latest film in the film franchise known as Rebuild of Evangelion, offering a decidedly new story to young EVA pilots and the organization known as NERV, and it seems fans in the West won.
Shunned multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic hitting Japan, fans wondered if the film would ever be brought to the West, but it appears that Amazon Prime Video will exclusively stream the film.
While anime sites such as Crunchyroll, Netflix, Funimation, and others have tried to corner the market when it comes to acquiring anime movies and television series, Amazon Prime has been launching a number of properties over the years in an effort to carve a niche for themselves.

The official Twitter account of Khara Studio, the producers behind the Evangelion franchise film series, revealed the big news that anime fans in the West can expect Thrice Upon A Time to land on Amazon Prime exclusively on August 13. of 2022.
With series like Vinland Saga, Made in Abyss, and Blade The Immortal, this latest film in the Rebuild of Evangelion series is definitely one of their biggest franchises to date and shows that Amazon is definitely still in the anime game when it comes to bringing new titles to the West.
