Shin Eva online premiere on Prime Video

Khara announced that the first 12 minutes, 10 seconds and 10 frames of Shin Eva will be premiered on Prime Video Japan, Youtube and Twitter on March 8. Thanks to user Joseki for bringing this up on the forums! In their own words, this is the world’s fastest release of Evangelion. This is the youtube link to the event (not up yet)

Additionally, the same page announces a simultaneous viewing event for the three previous movies. Evangelion Jo (1.0), Ha (2.0), and Q (3.0, possibly 3.333) will be screened on the the official YouTube channel of Amazon Prime Video and twitter for 3 days, March 5 (Friday), 6 (Saturday), and 7 (Sunday), 2021. During the Q simultaneous viewing event on March 7, a new unreleased part will be added to the video released at the opening screening event “Operation 0706” held in 2019.

We have also decided to release “Evangelion New Theatrical Version + Shin Evangelion Theatrical Version Opening 12 minutes 10 seconds 10 frames”. This opening video will be streamed live on Prime Video’s official YouTube channel and twitter, and will be premiered on the official Khara YouTube channel.

While this might be a combination of AVANT 1 (screened in 2019 in Paris) and AVANT 2 or a lengthened version of AVANT 1 with extra cuts, the separate mention of “Operation 0706” possibly suggests that the footage might be new. Either way, it looks to be interesting.
