The years-in-the-making Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 was supposed to be out this year. It was delayed due to covid-19, and the eagerly anticipated movie’s latest trailer now reveals a January 2020 release date.

Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 is slated to the fourth and last entry in the Rebuild of Evangelion series. Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, the third entry, was released in 2012.

Offering another look at Evangelion: 3.0+1.0, the third trailer is scored by a somber version of Shirō Sagisu’s “Peaceful Times (Choeur) =3EM32=” performed by a children’s choir which reaffirms the expected nature of the film. The 36-second teaser gives us a brief glimpse of the fallout following the events of Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo along with cuts of action. Amidst the scenes, we get a look at new plug-suits worn by Asuka Shikinami Langley and Mari Makinami Illustrious and new EVA units like the updated Evangelion Unit-00. In the end, the trailer reveals an official release date set for January 23, 2021.

Watch the new trailer above and for those that can’t wait for the release of Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time catch the first 10 minutes of the film released a few months back.

The movie will now be out on January 23, 2021, in Japan. It has yet to get an international release date. Hopefully, we get to see an International release sometime in the next 5 years.

As previously reported, the upcoming entry was supposed to be finished even earlier, but Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno got busy with his live-action Godzilla movie — something for which he apologized.
