Studio Khara’s official website for its new Evangelion film, Shin Evangelion Gekijō-ban :|| (AKA Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 AKA the fourth EVA movie from the new series that started back in 2007), has just posted a teaser trailer online.
The same video is screening before showings of Mamoru Hosoda’s Mirai film in Japan. You can check out the very short video below:
All we really see is EVA Unit 08 twirling in the air and shooting wildly at (presumably) something big and equally deadly. I always love when giant mecha have bandages on them. Is there a company that specializes in bandages for 60 foot tall robots?
The title for the final Evangelion film was announced back in 2012 as Evangelion Shin Gekijōban :||, or Evangelion: 3.0+1.0. The “:||” at the end of the Japanese title is meant to be the symbol used in music to denote repetition after reaching the end of a measure.
The movie is scheduled for a 2020 release in Japan. I’ve been waiting for this series to come to a wrap for quite some time, and while I was thoroughly underwhelmed by the third movie, I have high hopes for this grand finale.
