Japanese entertainment magazine, Weekly Bunshun, recently featured an article on Utada Hikaru, which coincidentally revealed the release date for the final Evangelion movie.
The article revealed that the Japanese megastar will be singing theme song for the movie, which is scheduled to premiere “between fall and winter of next year”. The article quoted a record company source who talked about the J-pop icon’s music return. Other sources such as Weekly ASCII magazine and Netlab have confirmed that the movie will indeed be slated for late 2015.
Utada Hikaru has performed the the ED theme for Evangelion: 1.0 You Are [Not] Alone, and the official Evangelion website has streamed her single, Beautiful World, in a music video which featured scenes from the Rebuild of Evangelion. You can watch the video through this link.
During the 7th Japan Animator Expo, some footage from the fourth and final movie were unveiled.
