After performing all the theme songs for all three previous Rebuild of Evangelion movies, legendary Japanese singer Utada Hikaru is returning to the franchise once again. Studio Khara’s official website confirmed her return, and also confirmed that the theme song’s title is “One Last Kiss”.
The song itself will launch digitally on January 24, 2021, before its EP release on January 27.
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 it will now 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.
