Evangelion fans, rejoice, because on 6th July, several anime events around the world will screen the first 10 minutes and 40 seconds of Studio Khara’s Shin Evangelion Gekijou-ban :||. The video itself will feature the introduction scene to the film before the title card.

The video is titled “Shin Evangelion Gekijouban AVANT 1 0706 Version”. It will first screen at the Japan Expo event in Paris, as well as the Anime Expo in Los Angeles on 6 July 2019. It will also be screened in various locations in Japan, as well as having simultaneous screenings worldwide. Unfortunately, the staff did not reveal the time and locations of these other places around the world. The only venues clear are the Anime Expo and Japan Expo events.

-- Advertisment --

The film’s official Japanese title is Evangelion Shin Gekijouban :||, or Evangelion: 3.0+1.0. The staff originally announced it back in 2012, but delays hampered its production.

Studio Khara is producing the animation, with Anno directing the film and writing the script, of course. It opens in Japan sometime in 2020. Expect Studio Khara to reveal more details soon enough.
