It’s been almost a year since the teaser trailer for Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 was released, and now we finally have more news on the long-awaited fourth (and final) Rebuild of Evangelion movie. At the recently concluded Japan Expo 2019 in Paris, a 10-minute clip of the upcoming Evangelion movie, and it’s an expanded version of what was shown in last year’s teaser.
Watch the Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 clip here (no English subs though):
The clip shown at Japan Expo 2019 is entitled “Shin Evangelion Gekijoban AVANT 1 (Beginning 10 Minutes 40 Seconds 00 Frame) 0706 Version” — basically it’s the film’s first 10 minutes. While we see Mari Illustrious Makanami in the clip, she’s joined by a new group of characters. Even with the new clip though, we still don’t have any idea on what’ll happen in the last Rebuild movie.
Aside from the trailer, a new poster for the film was shown at Japan Expo 2019 as well.

In case you’re unfamiliar, Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 is the finale to Rebuild of Evangelion — a movie tetralogy that’s a reimagination of Hideaki Anno’s original Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series. The first three films in the Rebuild series were released in Japan in 2009, 2007, and 2012 respectively.
Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 will be released in theaters sometime in 2020.
