Two weeks after ten minutes of footage from the final Rebuild of Evangelion film emerged online, we get a proper teaser — and well, it’s not much. It’s an assortment of character shots (e.g., Asuka, Rei, Kaworu) mixed with scenes of Evangelion floating around against a surreal backdrop. And because this is Evangelion, it’s all soundtracked by a exuberant musical chorus.
But I’ll take any evidence I can get that the final Evangelion movie will actually be released. Titled Evangelion 3.0+1.0, it’s been plagued by numerous delays — the previous Evangelion movie was released way back in 2012 — but will finally arrive in Japanese theaters in June 2020.
