Giant God Warrior Appears In Tokyo : Studio Ghibli's Live Action Foray And Evangelion 3.33
Studio Ghibli collaborated with Anno Hideaki (Director of Evangelion) on a rather uncharacteristic short for the typically 2D oriented studio, featuring a Kaiju (怪獣 'Strange beast) destroying Tokyo. Featuring a giant sized Kyoshinei creature from Nausicaa: Valley of the Wind, the short was premiered along with the theatrical release of the 3rd installment of the Rebuild of Evangelion series, 3.33. Based off what we know this sequence is a 1:1 recreation of the apocalypse as seen in the Nausicaa manga, which served as the introduction to the film. The Bluray/DVD was just released yesterday in Japanese territories, along with an awesome new trailer.
It has been confirmed that 'Kyoshinhei Tokyo ni Arawaru (Giant God Warriors Appear in Tokyo,' a short Tokusatsu (special effects) movie created by Studio Ghibli and originally screened in theatres alongside 'Evangelion 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo' will be included on the 'Evangelion 3.33' Blu Ray/DVD released on 24 April 2013.
;Kyoshinhei Tokyo ni Arawaru' (Giant God Warriors Appear in Tokyo) is a short Tokusatsu (Live-action film or tv series that uses special effects) movie created as a promotional video for the special effects exhibition at the 'TOKUSATSU – Special Effects Museum,' curated by Anno Hideaki (Evangelion’s director) at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo. The movie was shown with 'Evangelion 3.0' by Suzuki Toshio and Anno Hideaki.'
