15 years after an apocalyptic event called the 'Second Impact' wiped out half the human population, the city of Tokyo-3 finds itself under attack by alien beings called Angels. It’s left to young teen Shinji to protect humanity by piloting an Evangelion – a humanoid-mecha hybrid – to stop the impending threat.

Production delays meant a 9-year hiatus between the release of part three and the fourth instalment. It finally debuted in Japan to much acclaim in March, before being re-released in June with extra material as Evangelion: 3.0+1.01 Thrice Upon a Time. 

We begin the final film in Paris with Misato and her anti-NERV group tasked with saving the city in just 12 minutes. Meanwhile, viewers are reunited with Shinji (Megumi Ogata), Rei (Megumi Hayashibara) and Asuka (Yūko Miyamura) as they desperately seek shelter on the outskirts of Tokyo-3.

The most accessible film in this mega franchise promises to thrill anime fans and newbies alike. So, read on as we explain how to watch Evangelion: 3.0+1.01 Thrice Upon a Time online with Amazon Prime Video right now.
