We've known for a while that at some point they decided to end Q at a different time than originally planned. Ogata interview from the original theatrical booklet hinted at this but we got more evidence as the making-of feature came out on the BD.

While 2.0 was divided into A, B, C and D parts, Q was only up to C. Peaceful Time and Until you Come to Me use the storyboards and other material from that pretty much confirmed original D part.

I know there's discussion of this in the forum somewhere but I can't remember where. MNEF also mentions this multiple times.

Is this due to them splitting up Q and Final?

No. There were always going to be four films, though at one time it was suggested that the last two would come out in quick succession.

Is this feature only on the Japanese BD or is this on the North American version as well? I'm asking because some special features don't work on my copy.

Hopefully moving Part D to the fourth film means Final will be a nice & lengthy picture. I would love for the first twenty minutes or so of Final to just be a character piece with Asuka, Rei & Shinji walking across the Red Wastelands & really talking to each other for likely the first time ever.

Though I kind've expect the actual opening scene of Final will be a flashback action sequence to some formative event in the story. Maybe Yui getting absorbed into Unit 01 & the Eva going berserk OR some event from the timeskip that shows a key moment in Misato's development.... THEN Asuka, Rei & Shinji walking across the Red Wastelands!

Thanks, Numbers! ^_^

I kinda wish the content had been in the movie because it looks like it might provide some answers, but it would have really screwed with the pacing of the movie. I can't imagine 3.0 not ending like it does.
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

I can't imagine Final not starting with an action sequence. Both 2.0 and Q started with absolutely fantastic, grabbing action set pieces that fully displace everything else from your brain priming you only for what's to come next.

That said I don't think Q's original D part will survive intact into Final. They've had years to play around and probably fine-tuned the parts necessary for the new film while discarding the rest.

Well let's just hope Anno's idea of "quick succession" isn't like that of Gabe Newell's idea of how long people have had to wait for Half-Life 3, which all said and done with its current release date in 2018 is 11 damn years after Half-Life 2!

Just saying, we could be in for a very long and arduous wait... ;_;

I have made the mistake of looking up the lyrics to "Danny Boys".
