The legendary Evangelion movies are sadly coming to an end. Its last movie, Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time, has had the release date pushed back a few times largely due to the pandemic.
Thus fans of the series will be elated to hear the first 12 minutes of the movie will be hosted on YouTube on March 8 at 12am (Japan Standard Time).
You might be wondering, didn’t they play this preview at the Japan Expo in Paris and Los Angeles? You are right, but the new preview will have an extra 1.5 minutes and 10 frames of animation that hasn’t been released. Also, Utada Hikaru, Performer of most Evagelion theme songs, reveals the fourth title’s feature song labelled “One Last Kiss”.
