UPDATE (November 26, 2019): According to Asahi Shimbun, Shin Evangelion Gekijo-ban: (Evangelion: 3.0+1.0) will release in Japan next year in June. The film follows up 2007’s Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone, 2009’s Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance, and Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo from 2012. Although we have a release window for Japan, there is currently no date for a global release.
ORIGINAL STORY (July 22, 2018): Originally announced in 2012, the fourth and final film in the Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy has finally received a release year.
After six long years of waiting and speculation, fans of the series can now expect the end of animator Hideaki Anno’s theatrical reboot of Neon Genesis Evangelion to hit Japanese theaters in 2020. Although not much has been revealed, Evangelion: 3.0+1.0, also known as Evangelion 4.0, is expected to follow the events of Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo and provide some form of conclusion to the anime series marked by enigmatic narratives. Despite the guarantee of an ending, many fans of the series are noting the upcoming film’s promotional poster tagline of “Tsuzuki, soshite owari,” meaning “The continuation, and the end,” is reminiscent of the psychological trying endings seen throughout the series’ 24-year long history.
