Eureka: Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution Anime Film Gets 2022 U.S. Release Window – IGN
During New York Comic-Con, Funimation gave an update on its upcoming movie slate beginning with the upcoming Eureka Seven movie.
Eureka: Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution, the final full-length film in the Eureka sequel trilogy will be released in 2022. Set 10 years after the events of the last film, Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution will star Eureka, who is living by herself as atonement for the destruction of the world. Things are quiet until she meets Iris, a new “Eureka.”
The two of them set out into the world thanks to their shared destiny. One, a Eureka who has lost her powers, the other is afraid of her newfound abilities.
The conclusion to the cinematic trilogy is almost here!
EUREKA: EUREKA SEVEN HI-EVOLUTION is headed to theaters in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand in 2022!

Hi-Evolution is the third film after 2017’s Eureka Seven: Hi-Evolution 1 and 2018’s Anemone: Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution. The trilogy began by retelling of some of the events from the 2005 anime before taking the story in a new direction.
This is reminiscent of the Rebuild of Evangelion movies which started as a retelling of the anime before revealing itself to be a true sequel. The Evangelion Rebuild movies ended after the fourth and final movie premiered earlier this year.
Funimation’s full panel also included updates on another anime film, Sing a Bit of Harmony, about an AI high school student and the new friends she makes at school. This co-production from Funimation is directed by award-winning anime filmmaker Yasuhiro Yoshiura.
