It took thirteen years, but it’s time to finally conclude this epic saga.
Earlier today, a special report circulated to theaters across Japan, stating that upcoming film Shin Evangelion Gekijōban:|| (Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.0) will hit cinemas in 2020.
In May, we reported that Studio Khara was looking to hire staffers for the film in the following positions:
- 3D CGI Animatiors
- Visual Effects Staff
- 2D Animators
Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 was originally slated to hit Japanese theaters in 2015. The film’s title was originally unveiled in 2012. At the time, it was explained that the :|| was a musical symbol to denote repetition at the end of a measure.
To date, three films have been produced in the Rebuild of Evangelion line:
- Evangelion 1.0: You Are [Not] Alone (2007)
- Evangelion 2.0: You Can [Not] Advance (2009)
- Evangelion 3.0: You Can [Not] Redo (2012)
Funimation currently holds the domestic rights to all three features. The company released Evangelion 3.0 on Blu-Ray in North America in 2016. The Blu-Ray, was delayed from a planned September 2013 launch, was co-produced by Studio Khara.
