Being in production for over a decade, the film was highly anticipated by fans worldwide. But finally, when the film was released, many members of the audience were left dissatisfied.

Many felt the animation, and the overall story was not upto the mark. The franchise is close to the hearts of many people, so naturally, a lot of them reacted negatively. Many rumors surfaced up, including one regarding director Hideaki Anno’s next project.

Studio Khara confirmed through its official website that director Hideaki Anno is not working on any Evangelion anime project.

Currently, there is a news article about Hideaki Anno planning an anime work, but there is no such fact.

Recently, some articles over the Internet claimed that Anno is working on an anime that will cover the “Rebuild of Evangelion” story arc. But the studio has confirmed that these articles are a hoax. None of the studio officials had indulged in an interview with any magazine or website in the recent past.
