The movie is already available on Amazon Prime Japan. As initially announced by Studio Khara, Thrice Upon A Time went live on Prime Video Japan as soon as clocks hit midnight, August 13 JST.

Why are fans hyped for the final Evangelion movie?

Fans have been waiting for the final Eva movie for years. The first Rebuild of Evangelion movie was first released on September 1, 2007. The second one on June 27, 2009, and the third movie on November 17, 2012. This project began over 13 years ago and it’s finally ending.

This final Eva movie itself has a very peculiar history as well. Studio Khara and Evangelion director Hideaki Anno stated in 2015 he was again battling depression, which delayed the movie. Moreover, he was also busy with several projects, including Shin Godzilla which released in 2016, and Shin Ultraman, planned for 2021. Right now, Anno is also working on Shin Kamen Rider coming in 2023:

Together with Anno’s mental health problems, the movie’s production and release also had to deal with the Coronavirus pandemic and the state of emergency in Japan. The final Eva movie’s Japanese release got delayed from June 27, 2020 to October 16, then to January 23, 2021, and lastly to March 8. All of us outside Japan will finally be able to watch it too on August 13.
