Evangelion 3+1, No 2016 Release?

Postby Sicarius VI » Fri Apr 22, 2016 11:27 am

I was searching the Internet and found this article.
http://www.idigitaltimes.com/evangelion ... ome-523399

Now understand what is said here is purely speculation and not confirmed as official,etc as everything regarding this movie is.

But as we get farther and farther into 2016, I find myself thinking this to be more true. To think about it, it's almost May, and we have had no news yet.

Now while there are plenty of reasons why we don't have news yet, this is not what I created the topic for. I mainly want to ask how many of you think we aren't going to get a 2016 release and when we could possibly get this movie if not 2016.

While I personally would like to get a 2016 release date around winter, as I am getting farther into this year my hope that this is the case is less and less.

Maybe we will get a shitstorm of news after Shinzilla and it'll kinda be like how Fallout 4 was released. In such the re-reveal and release date are not more than 6 months apart, which would be awesome.

With Q the first teaser trailer (with space pirate Asuka) came out 15 months before the movie -- and to date we've seen nothing for the next part.

I've just stopped anticipating a release date. It'll come out... eventually. And when it does, it shall be glorious(ly frustrating).

Yes!




Well, actually, no, but people like to get excited from time to time.

I'm guessing we won't hear anything until late 2017, early 2018, depending on how much longer Anno wants to put off making it while doing other things. He's pretty stable-ish now, right?

I anticipate 3.0+1.0 will be so disappointing he'll have to make a fifth movie.
Rite of Reclamation - an Evangelion/Halo fusion, check it out, is pretty neat.

I read an article a few months ago and it said that it's probable that it released in august this year, but seeing as they hadn't released anything about the movie yet... it's pretty much a lost hope for now and other thing is that Anno said in the interview where he said that after 3.0 he entered a state of depression and stuff that 3.0 + 1.0 was advancing without him but very slowly at the time that he was working on shin godzilla, but as a release i'd say that it will probably hit next year but if we are very lucky it can be late this year or even early 2017.

Whatever he does, the forums will be a madhouse of rumour and speculation on partial information for some weeks. Just like the last time and the time before that.

It would be pretty amazing if we had everything wrong even after four years of speculation. :lol:

The hiring notice for Q went up ~December 2010, with the movie coming out in November 2012. They started hiring for that "next Evangelion work" in April of last year, so if Q's production was any indication, it probably won't be out before Spring 2017 at the earliest. I would love to be wrong about that, though, and wasn't Q somewhat delayed by the 2011 earthquakes?
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 figured it as a given that it's not coming out in 2016 as far back as the summer of 2015, or at the very least when we heard nothing around the new year.

BTW this article is dumb, doesn't any have anything to say other than speculation presented as fact.
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

And speaking of speculation, do we really need yet another of these release date speculation threads? It will be out whenever it's out and that's all there is to it. There have got to be more interesting ways to pass the time than the whole "are we there yet?" routine.

The article has some false-information. It was never titled 4.0, and I believe there was a thread here way back where Anno commented to a question asked on a college campus saying the basic script for the last movie was already done.
Please just call me Ian, "TheFrisky" is more of a title.

That was from an October 2013 Q&A at the Osaka University of Arts. Thread is over here.

質問「エヴァの次回作について何か構想はありますか?」
司会者「あ、現在制作中のものに関してはNGです」
庵野さん「もう一応出来てはいるんだけどね、何度も書き換えながら、作り直ししてます」

Student Questioner: Have you thought of the plot for the next Eva film?

Moderator: Ah, no questions concerning works currently in production.

Anno: [The script?] is already finished provisionally, but I am reworking it, rewriting over and over again.
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!

Yes that, I like how Anno ignores the moderator and answers the question anyways.

Anno seems like a really cool guy and is very straightforward with his answers in all of the interviews I've read/watched.

Hmm. He says both that the script is finished and that he is still working on it. That actually gives no idea whatsoever how close to a final version it was at that time.

^^^^Wonder how many times he's rewritten it by now.
^^Yea Anno seems like a pretty laid back person.

So the consensus seems to be we won't get a 2016 release and it'll come when ever it wants. I still want to hold on too a Winter 2016 release, but will I be proven wrong? Most Likely. I wonder if we could get anything at the end of the ShinZilla or like a 3+1 trailer included in it's home release... Do home releases even do that anymore? Also just want to point out the event that happens in early September, and which is where we got the title card of 3+1 to begin with(forgot the name), may we see a trailer there this year?

Remember back in like Early 2015 or even mid/late 2014 we all through it would come by Winter 2015? Remember that? Cause I do, and I look back just to say how misguided we all were.

I did mention this in my first post, but when I put it up, the article was the most recent showing that it is more than just Evageeks still waiting on this movie.

We got the title card from the NTV showing of Eva 3.0, didn't we? And then the lantern drawing at the Bonbori festival? Or was that the other way around?

This year's Bonbori festival is August 9th, fwiw. If Anno does another lantern this year, I'd count on it being Godzilla related since that's about a week and a half after Resurgence comes out.

I pretty sure it was the other way around, but the Lantern showing already had 3.0+1.0, not many batted an eye to it(including myself) until the Title Card reveal in the NTV showing.(Now I remember the name thank you).

So I'll reword it, I wonder if we'll get a trailer at this year NTV showing of Eva 3.0, if there even is one.

Pfft, hell I remember when 3.0 was a month away and the official Japanese site had the release date for Final as 2013. Older member will remember that it once was 2008!!!
