Rebuild of Evangelion is a four-part theatrical remake of the original Neon Genesis Evangelion TV series from 1996. The first anime film, Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone premiered in September 2007, and the second film, Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance followed in June 2009. Created by the same production team as the TV series, Evangelion 1.0 is a futuristic tale which tells the story of schoolboy Shinji Ikari as he is summoned by his estranged father to the vast city of Tokyo-3. The tearful reunion he was hoping for does not materialize as his father has a far more nefarious reason for wanting his son by his side again. Led down into the underground labyrinth of NERV headquarters, he learns that he is one of only a few children that can pilot one of the enormous Evangelion robots against a terrifying enemy. Tokyo-3 is under attack from the terrifying Angels, creatures of an unknown origin bent on laying waste to anything they find. However, there are greater forces at work behind the scenes, and is the true enemy the angels, NERV, the mysterious SEELE, or the demons held within the hearts of the people involved?
