This is it folks, Studio Khara’s official YouTube channel has finally posted the full trailer for the upcoming Evangelion: 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time movie. It debuted in Japanese theatres last Christmas Day. The trailer itself also features the movie’s theme song, “One Last Kiss” by the legendary Utada Hikaru.
And not only that, but the staff also released a brand new key visual for the movie. Chief animation director Atsushi Nishigori himself drew the new visual, and it features the five main Eva pilots.
The movie itself has finished recording dialogue last November. Previously, director and creator Hideaki Anno stated that the anime will be coming later than expected. The movie was supposed to open in Japan on June 27, 2020 after eight years of waiting. Unfortunately, COVID-19 delayed the anime a bit further, and we now it will premiere in Japan in January 23, 2021.
Studio Khara will once again be animating the movie, with creator Hideaki Anno (Shin Godzilla) also returning to direct it as well. Hideaki Anno’s Studio Khara announced the film back in 2012. Unfortunately, Anno’s personal issues, as well as other issues, kept pushing the film back.
