GKIDS Acquires North American Rights to “Neon Genesis Evangelion”

Historic Properties to Arrive on Blu-ray and Digital Download-to-Own in 2021

GKIDS, the acclaimed producer and distributor of animation for adult and family audiences, announced it has acquired North American theatrical, home video and EST rights to the critically-acclaimed NEON GENESIS EVANGELION. Included in the landmark deal are the original twenty-six episode television series, NEON GENESIS EVANGELION, as well as the films EVANGELION: DEATH (TRUE)2 and THE END OF EVANGELION. All three properties will be released on Blu-ray and on digital download-to-own in 2021. This is the first time NEON GENESIS EVANGELION will be available on Blu-ray in North America.

The deal, finalized on the eve of the storied saga’s 25th anniversary, was negotiated by GKIDS’ President David Jesteadt and King Records.

Created by Hideaki Anno, the NEON GENESIS EVANGELION television series is considered one of the most influential animated series of all time. Since its 1995 premiere in Japan, the story of teenager Shinji Ikari has remained one of the most iconic titles in animation history, and a global pop culture phenomenon.

“Neon Genesis Evangelion was one of the first titles that transformed my idea of what animation is truly capable of,” said GKIDS’ President David Jesteadt. “GKIDS was created with the intent to distribute the best animation in the world, and it’s an honor to help share such a groundbreaking work with North American audiences in new formats.”

We don't know yet. There are unconfirmed rumors that ADV may still have rights to the original dub. The best case scenario is to include both dubs. With that said, it wouldn't surprise me if they can only release it with the Netflix dub.

Re: Rebuild of Evangelion

Just got an eblast announcing the Limited Edition and Regular Editions of the series. Links below are for Right Stuf, but presumably these will be available elsewhere. The box set lists "Bonus Classic Dub and Subtitled Versions" while the regular doesn't, but surely that would have the original dub as well?



Complete Series Limited Collector's Edition: includes series, two movies, book, cards, and 7+ hours of supplements:

Re: Rebuild of Evangelion

The standard edition does not have the original dub, only the new Netflix dub.


The Collector's edition is only available at GKids's site, Shout Factory's site, and Right Stuf. The standard version will be available at those retailers, along with any others who want to carry it (I saw Wal-Mart & Amazon mentioned)

Re: Rebuild of Evangelion

Good to know, although I don't think I've ever seen this dubbed so the English track doesn't matter to me even now. I prefer the original language, so hopefully that's still intact. Are the supplements the same between the Limited Edition and the sold-out Ultimate Edition? Not really interested in the cards, books and non-disc junk in either set, really, but the Limited at least seems to come with a hefty amount of bonus material for its high price.

I believe the discs in the Ultimate edition and the Limited Collector's edition are exactly the same. The only differences are the packaging and extra physical goodies.

Thanks for doing that. I went with the CE, though I wouldn't have bothered with the UE anyway.

I love Evangelion but that's a lot of money to pay for something that is incomplete (even if I understand why Fly Me to the Moon isn't included)
