Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo is the third of four films released in the Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy directed by Hideaki Anno. Fourteen years after the third impact, Shinji awakens to a world he does not recognize. His body has not aged a single day. Earth lies in ruins, and those he once fought valiantly to protect have cruelly turned against him. Nerv is nothing but a distant memory. Trapped in a harrowing cycle of death and rebirth, Shinji continues to courageously battle the angels—even as the world spirals down towards what could be a tragic end.

Based on the anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion, which has generated over 2-billion in revenue, the series has risen to cult status in the anime community. With complex themes explored through Christian imagery, mecha drama tropes, and in—the final, controversial episodes—psychoanalysis of the main characters, this apocalyptic anime gets a reinterpretation with this new film series, truncating some storylines and expanding others. Evangelion 3.0, like its two predecessors, were monster box-office hits in Japan, with the eagerly awaited “final chapter” set to be released sometime next year.

Hideaki Anno is best known for his work on the popular anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. His style has come to be defined by the touches of postmodernism he injects into his work, as well as the thorough portrayal of characters’ thoughts and emotions.
