Evangelion 3.33 UK DVD & Blu-ray Release Dated Amended By Manga Entertainment UK


Manga Entertainment UK have today taken to their official blog to confirm that the UK DVD & Blu-ray release of Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo has been delayed until to the 25th August 2014.

The reason for this delay is due to the US distributor, FUNimation, who decided to delay the physical release of the film in order to extend its run at the cinema. Basically FUNimation saw that Evangelion 3.33 was doing well at the Cinema and decided to delay its physical DVD & Blu-ray release, and because of this delay it has had a knock-on effect for Manga Entertainment in the UK and presumably Madman Entertainment in Australia.

Manga UK and Madman rely on the physical content produced in the US, if this content is not available (or in this case not available for distribution) then they have to wait until it is ready. It’s disappointing news, but unfortunately that’s how it currently works – something which Jerome has mentioned plenty of times on the Manga UK Podcast.

That’s not the only bad news either, because as its stands this “25th August 2014” release date is only a preliminary one one, meaning it could change again in the near future.

On the bright side Manga Entertainment UK have also confirmed that Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo will get a cinematic release across the UK, with locations, dates and dubbing format to be revealed in the coming months.
