Rebuild 1.01 re-released on DVD and Blu-Ray Disc as Rebuld 1.11

Evangelion 1.0 You are (not) alone will get a re-release on Blu-ray Disc and DVD as “1.11” on May 27 in Japan. The 1.11 release is said to have new cuts and digital remastering. The AV Watch website says that the digital anime won’t be directly transfered to DVD/BD, but that they’ll make new 35mm prints and create a High Definition telecine from the film. Hopefully this remastered version won’t have the darkness problem 1.01’s release did. Whether or not Funimation, the company who secured the rights to Evangelion 1.01 in the States, will gain rights to release 1.11 is unknown at this point.
