After an extremely long wait, the final “Rebuild of Evangelion” film has finally landed a release date in Japanese cinemas. Crunchyroll is reporting that Evangelion 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon a Time will release on January 23, 2021, bringing an end to the long-running anime series.
The original series, Neon Genesis Evangelion, ran from 1995 until 1996 in Japan, and was followed by the (extremely grim) feature-length End of Evangelion in 1997. It was later followed up by the Rebuild series, which 3.0+1.0 is the final entry in. The movie is written and chiefly directed by series creator Hideki Anno.
A new trailer has also surfaced, which you can watch below (and, if you’re anything like me, get a bit emotional about). The trailer debuted ahead of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba THE MOVIE Mugen Train in Japanese cinemas.
