Anime studio, Khara, recently addressed rumors that Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time might have a six-hour run time. Originally set to open in Japan on June 27, the premiere of the highly-anticipated film was delayed due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic.
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), 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 action cuts.
Amid the scenes, we get a look at new plug suits worn by Asuka Shikinami Langley and Mari Makinami Illustrious as well as new EVA units like the updated Evangelion Unit-00.
The trailer reveals an official release date set for January 23, 2021.
