Titan-sized news for Attack on Titan fans from Funimation today! Funimation Films will present Attack on Titan Season 2 Movie: Roar of Awakening and, perhaps more importantly for some out there, the Attack on Titan Season 3 world premiere as a two-night only event, July 10 – 11, 2018, in select U.S. and Canadian theaters. The Attack on Titan Season 3 world premiere immediately follows the recap movie with a special presentation of Episode 1 of the new season. This North American world premiere will be the first ever for the franchise and is a must-see event for U.S. and Canadian fans to experience Attack on Titan Season 3 nearly two weeks before the series’ scheduled television debut in Japan on July 22nd.
