Get ready to bid one final goodbye to your beloved Evangelion series with the release of the final movie to the Evangelion tetralogy “Evangelion: 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time” on January 23.
Evangelion, as we know, is the earliest anime to introduce the mecha concept into the anime world and is now one of the childhood favorite series of every otaku.
Evangelion: 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time will show, Shinji, alongside his crew gearing up one last time to fight the creatures attacking mankind.
The movie was slated for a June 27th release, but was later changed to January 23, 2021 due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The official website for Evangelion announced that the final movie “Evangelion: 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time” will be screening at 15 different theatres in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, and Sapporo.
The screening will be held at midnight i.e. 00:00 on Jan 23 making it the earliest movie screening possible.
That’s not all, select IMAX theatres will be screening the previous film “Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo” before midnight and will be showcasing an updated version of the third film Evangelion: 3.333 You Can (Not) Redo from January 8 to January 22.
The tickets will be available from midnight on Jan 13th.
The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has forced theatres to hold midnight screenings for films to avoid more crowds.
However, this decision has hampered a lot of theatres owners and multiplexes who rely on the movie going crowd for profit.
Studio Khara is currently holding 4DX theatre film screenings for the previous three films in the Evangelion movie franchise to prepare viewers for the final film.
We can’t wait to dive right into the world of mecha and pay one last tribute to the final Evangelion film.
