Revival of Evangelion was the third Neon Genesis Evangelion movie to be released in Japan. Revival is ultimately the "final vision" of GAINAX and Anno Hideaki. It combines parts of the first two movies, Evangelion: Death and Rebirth and The End of Evangelion, into one long production. Revival is how the Eva movies were supposed to be released if GAINAX didn't have all the money and scheduling problems it did. It is a "complete" ending, "This is the ending you were asking for". Revival of Evangelion is was released in Japan on March 7, 1998 and it contains the following: Evangelion: Death (True)² Episode 25': Air Episode 26': Magokoro o, Kimi ni This is basically just Evangelion: Death (True)² plus The End of Evangelion. It contains no "original" Evangelion: Death, no Evangelion: Rebirth and no new scenes. It is just the combining of all the parts into what was originally envisioned.
