Studio Khara has announced that it is forced to postpone the premiere of Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.0: Thrice Upon A Time indefinitely. The reason for the transfer of the final film in the tetralogy Rebuild of Evangelion was a pandemic.
We are closely monitoring the situation around the coronavirus and emergencies in Japan. We would like to express our sincere apologies to everyone who has been looking forward to the premiere. As soon as everything is decided, we will immediately notify you on the official website.
Recently, a new strain of coronavirus was discovered in Japan, and the country’s authorities completely banned entry to foreigners. Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, over 300,000 infections have been recorded in Japan. Security threats also forced Universal Studios Japan to postpone the opening of the Super Nintendo World theme park.
The original Japanese premiere of Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.0 was expected on January 23rd. The western release is still unknown. It was directed and written by the original co-author Hideaki Anno.
