The popularity of the series led to the story being continued in '97 and '98 with three movies, Death and Rebirth, The End of Evangelion, and Revival of Evangelion. All three movies borrow heavily from the series and present an alternate ending to the story. The first three of the new movies will be an alternate version of the series, including new backgrounds, characters, and scenes. The fourth movie is a new conclusion to the Evangelion story. Release dates have been announced as July '07, January '08 and June '08.

There are some cartoon characters that have a permanent shield of double-thick steel around them. When you think they're finally gone, they come back in a new form.
Take our pal Scooby-Doo, for example. Scooby and his Mystery Inc. friends have been with us since 1969. That's 37 years, kids; 259 in dog years (you knew I had to throw in that joke, didn't ya?). Since then he's been paired with Fred, Daphne, and Velma, the Scooby-Doobies (From Laff-a-Lympics), Dynomutt, Vincent Price and, ahem, Scrappy-Doo. After leaving Saturday mornings in the late '80s, he returned with the entire Mystery Inc in What's New Scooby-Doo for the Kids WB.
Now he's back again in this fall's 'Kids WB on the CW' (catchy, ain't it?) in Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get a Clue. In this show... well, perhaps you should jump to find out what it's all about, and also see some of the other new series premiering next fall on Kids WB.
Well, it turns out that Nickelodeon is trying to its darndest to become ruler of the universe. Er, that would be the children's programming universe.
At the recent upfront presentation for the media, Nickelodeon president Cyma Zarghami informed the audience that 70 of the top 70 children's programs were on their channel. In fact, according to Zarghami, the network's lead is 101% over their nearest competitor, Cartoon Network. Well, I guess they can brag a little bit.
Previously, the homunculus Greed had kidnapped Al to try and pry from him the "secret of eternal life". Unbeknownst to Greed, however, military man Frank Archer has allied himself with Greed's homunculi enemies, who track down Greed's crew (along with the captured Al). The homunculi Lust and Gluttony appear to destroy Greed, but Greed's comrades insist that Greed flee while they battle. Showing a loyalty uncharacteristic of his kind, Greed initially refuses, but eventually runs. The battle doesn't end well for Greed's side: in what must be the most grisly way to die ever devised, Gluttony ends up eating his friends.
Greed flees to Dante's house, only to find Dante (apparently) dead and her assistant, Lyra, attending the house. Lyra weakens Greed by trapping him in an alchemical circle and forcing him to spit up the stones which give him his life. Greed realizes what's happening moments before Ed charges back into Dante's house, demanding that Greed return Ed's brother. Greed doesn't mention that he's already let Al go, and instead coaxes Ed into battle. But...why? We soon learn that Greed has his reasons.
Adult Swim has been showing new dubbed episodes. The current plot line centers around the Homunculi, a group of "created creatures" who are brought into existence whenever an alchemist attempts a forbidden Human Transmutation. Ed and Al have recently discovered that their alchemical teacher, Izumi, attempted her own transmutation years before in a despertae attempt to bring her stillborn baby back to life. Now the result of her sin, the Homunculus Wrath, is on the loose. And worse yet? Unlike other Homunculi who can't perform alchemy, Wrath can transmute objects easily...because he possesses Ed's severed arm and leg.
