I hadn't thought of the Toho/Toei collaboration positively affecting international distribution. That does make sense and seems hopeful for a same-year US theatrical release.

They have the money, power & connections overseas to get things done quickly and for a good price.
It sounds like on the previous films Khara was crossing every T & dotting every I in their negotiations with Funimation to make sure they got the best financial deal and that's partially what took so long. With Final, Khara has probably already gotten well paid and are lined up to secure a nice paycheck when Funimation buys (or has already bought) the rights.

So the same studios behind DBS: Broly... sounds like the odds are in our favor for a quick international and dubbed release. You brought that up in an earlier post too IIRC.

Thankfully EVA is full of rich visuals which make following the gist of the story a bit easier, sounds like something worth experiencing a some point.

Netflix just announcing they have Worldwide streaming rights to Neon Genesis Evangelion, Death & End of Evangelion (HD streaming in Spring 2019... though this COULD kills the chances of any US Blu-Ray release depending on what rights Netflix owns) makes me think they’ve got their eyes on FINAL.

^ I was just going to post this after seeing the trailer. If they bought the rights, maybe they will stream rebuild once it's complete. Not to mention that buying the rights would also probably go to the funding of Final itself. All in all, not seeing a problem unless they try to make a live-action adaptation at some point...

Well, Netflix now owns the streaming rights to NGE.
The rights to Rebuild are owned by a different distribution company so that’s a whole different business deal.
I guess a big factor is how much longer does Funimation own the rights to the first three Rebuilds & are they willing/have they renewed for FINAL?

Anywho, key thing is the world will finally get to see Eva in HD but this most likely kills the chance of their being any physical home video releases of the old series outside of Japan.

^ Well, that is a good question, though with Netflix having the rights to NGE, it may be a deterrent to Funimation renewing their interests in NTE. Though, Netflix does distribute some of its series on DVD, so there still may be hope for one massive collectors edition of NGE+D&R+EoE+NTE in some "ultimate super-dee-duper deluxe collectors edition with LCL inside" that comes out, because companies love a good money grab.

Netflix is all about being a Content Wall. You want to see what’s on their service you gotta pay for it. Even their handful of home video releases for their Original Series - mostly all generation one shows with a few exceptions for later titles like Stranger Things & The Punisher - are more marketing for buying a subscription.

A physical media release really does all depend on what deal Netflix made with the Japanese distributor. Still, HD Eva with subtitles will be amazing and at least Netlflix can’t slap “A Netflix Original” on it like they did all of Little Witch Academia which is never getting released to disc. My hope is their deal is Streaming Only so another company like Funimation can come in and buy the rights so a fancy physical release can still happen one day. Wasn’t their talk that Khara wasn’t giving the Original Series a physical media release until after FINAL was fully complete - ie. played in theaters worldwide and on home video in Japan at least? That would give Netflix a window of practically two years on the series.

Anywho, I’m still thinking Funimation will get FINAL because they have the rights to the previous three films still and their relationship with Toei & Toho - the distributors of FINAL - seems strong because of this new Dragonball movie.

Either way, hopefully Eva hits Netflix in late March or early April so I can work an HD viewing around my birthday.

I believe the NGE movie (EOE or The Feature Film) may be getting a worldwide theaters run next year in Spring too by the way. At the beginning of this month the italian publisher of NGE/Rebuild/bunch of Anno stuff at a panel said they have an open slot in May for a movie they can't announce yet because of negotiations still in play, but they asked us to "pray the angels" for the contract to be signed.

Finger crossed for the Blu Ray release.

This is really good news! NGE hasn't been readily available in the US through legal means for quite a while now.
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

^ I like how you added in "legal means" :rofl:

Gendo'sPapa, I agree and hope Netflix only has the streaming rights, and if Funimation has to give up the streaming and/or film release rights in order to release a box set, I would be fine with that :)

One reason why Netflix while having NGE might not get the Rebuilds or the rights to FINAL - Apparently the international distributor of the first three Rebuilds, Nippon TV, also run Hulu Japan so it's unlikely they'd want to give those titles away to a direct competitor. Unsure about Final since Toho & Toei entered the game but Netflix won't shell out top dollar for just one fourth of a series if the other three films require people to go visit another service.

Does Netflix have an option for Dub/Sub? I dislike the eng dub with a passion. Also y'all think they will have EOE on netflix eventually?

There's a thread for this elsewhere but the Netflix deal includes End of Evangelion so that'll be available for streaming in Spring 2019 as well.
Also Netflix provides multiple languages & subtitle options for pretty much everything on their service. You'll most likely have the option to watch NGE & EOE in Japanese, English, Spanish, German, French, Italian and a few others as well.

Yeah, we just don’t know WHICH dubs they’ll be. It’s weird for me because I love all of the original English dub cast memebers, just not their work in that show.
