And then the rumors leaked on Marth 5th. I wonder if anyone got fired for that leak.

So there was a lot of truth to that rumor from a few months ago. Only major falsehood was that Anno was not going to delay the final Evangelion film to do it.
Fascinating.

If the plan really is to make a 2021 release - probably a Summer release - that's a VERY QUICK turnaround for Anno. I imagine Shinji Higuchi will get to work handling all the major effects sequences and set pieces pretty shortly and Anno will jump into directing the human storyline in the second half of 2020.

I don't know the character of Ultraman - I'm aware of its existence but have zero knowledge of the character - but I'll be there for another live action Hideaki Anno epic.

Wonder if he'll do something subversive again like how he used Godzilla for political allegory.


...Though is Anno now just the "Shin" Guy? Shin Evangelion. Shin Godzilla. Shin Ultraman. Shin Nausicaa?

EDIT: Is Anno directing? Or is he just producing and Higuchi is pulling all the shots? Seeing all variations from Anno is wirter/director to Anno is writer and Higuchi is director to it's a tag team again.

I think maybe (just maybe) this has delayed Shin Eva, but also he has the right to do it. This is a dream come true for him I'm sure.
So happy over another Anno film.
Hope he directs.

Some things to note:
In an older interview about Ultraman (I'll try digging up) Anno mentioned how he thought as a kid that Ultraman was really creepy (will that factor into a possible redesign?) and that he would like to focus on the Science Patrol. I wonder if any of this will reflect in the current story.

Also, hilarious:

Will this be called the Shin trilogy in retrospect?

The June 2020 release is happening for Eva Final. They've already started marketing it. Toho & Toei won't allow that to change. That's a concrete set release month.

Though Anno writing the Ultraman script could theoretically have slowed down production of the final Eva film at some point in 2017 or 2018 for sure.

Nice wordplay between Shin Hayata, the classic Ultraman, and Shin Ultraman by the way.

Amazing, so the rumors were true, huh! (does anyone remember where this rumor originated?)
Either way, I loved Shin Godzilla despite never having been a huge fan of the franchise... and I care even less about Ultraman; but something with Anno's work connects so inherently with me I'm already sure, I'm gonna love this one as well! ^_^

I've read there is a mistranslation. Anno is credited for planning and scriptwriting, not producer and scriptwriter.

A website called Nikkan Taishu first leaked the idea in March but the studios all shot it down:

Here's the post I made in the other thread when this first came up back in March:

"Did a copy and paste of the article into a translator and got this, have done no editing:

https://taishu.jp/articles/-/63863?page=1

Director Hideaki Anno of movie "Shin · Godzilla" released in the summer of 2016 and recorded a hit of 2.25 billion yen in civilization will start making the movie "Shin Ultraman" with "Ultraman" as the theme The information entered.

Some movie officials came out that "Shin Ultraman" cranks in this winter ". Director Anno himself is such a big fan who produced Ultraman's complete copy work while studying at the university, and it is more strange that he has already taken "Shin · Godzilla" and made a hit production project by him. However, Director Anno is expected to produce "Shin · Evangelion Theater Version ●" (※ ● =: || Repeat of Music Symbol = hereinafter "Shin Eva") which will be a complete version from animation fans . Mr. Anno's "Shin Ultraman" will be an unprecedented featured work, but "Shin Eva" may have a possibility of being postponed again this time "(entertainment professional relations Person "Evangelion New Theatrical Version" The final edition of all four series "Shin Eva". Originally in 2007 "Evangelion New Theater Version:? "This work, which was announced in the title, was delayed in production due to delay. The title was changed in 2012, and in 2016 the director Anno himself apologized for the delay of completion of "Shin Eva" at the seat of the completion conference of "Shin Godzilla”.

Although it is the same work that had nothing since then, in the summer of last year it suddenly announced the release of "Shin Eva" 2020 at the theaters nationwide. On January 31 of this year, Emi Ogata who is a voice actor of hero / Ikari Shinji reported that "Shin Eva" "Shot Entry" was held by her own Twitter account and it became a big topic among fans It was.

"If the production of" Shin Ultraman "is on the rumor, the shooting start is this winter.So coach Director Anno is planning to complete" Shin Eva "which will be released next year, but Director Anano has" There is also "pre-medicine" who has postponed "Shin · Eva" with "Shin · Godzilla" Because it is a person who sticks to the details, if you are addicted to the depth, it may be possible that it will not be completed by winter ... .... "Shin Ultraman" will have a schedule of performers and you will not be able to shoot the film, "Shin Ultraman" is the first, the end of 2020 or 2021, the worst, "Shin Eva" Perhaps it will be later than after. Either "Eva" or "Ultraman" will definitely be a super hit class hit, both in the future Kan "(anime magazine reporter)
"Shin · Godzilla" was announced as a topic with a total of 329 gorgeous casts. Master Kyogen Nomura Mansai (52) used the movement of Godzilla, use Hakuo Hasegawa (41), Yutaka Takenouchi (48), Satomi Ishihara (32), Ren Osugi (deceased) luxurious classes However, similarly to "Shin Ultraman", casts representing the Japanese film industry are likely to face a whole lot.

"Currently, as a candidate for the protagonists, the name is mentioned as a rumor among stakeholders among the stakeholders is Koichi Okada (38), it is a voice that the heroine is Tsuchiya Taiho (24) Okada is now Johnny's A national actor that is not limited to the frame.Moreover, Kurosawa Akira work is also a user of the action enough to acknowledge "sword-fighting" by the master of the Japanese film industry master Kimura Akira who has a camera.It can be said that it is a suitable person to play Hayata members Tsuchiya also performed Japanese dance, ballet, hip hop dance from the age of 3, and as you can see in the performance performed in the 2018 drama "Cheer ☆ Dan" (TBS series), the element of action is sufficient. He has also starred in numerous movies, and in 2012 and 2015, he also appeared in the TV drama 'Ultraman Rendo' (TV Tokyo series). Possibility to appear as a loin is it is likely "(entertainment professional personnel)

Will "Shin Eva" be completed by the crank-in of rumor "Shin Ultraman"? Everything depends on Director Anno."

So I gather there are rumors of Anno being hired to do a New Ultraman live action feature. That the plan would be to have production set to begin filming in the Winter (start of 2020?) and that having a cast & crew on location would have to take precedence because filming is the most time sensitive & costly part of making a movie. Sounds like a lot of "Ifs" & "Maybes" with a lot of hand wringing & very little confirmation in the article over if this would actually delay Eva. Which I would consider highly unlikely but....

I'm at a loss. Maybe someone who actually understands Japanese can get a grasp on what the article is saying but for now this seems like a wait to see what happens scenario. We know Final Eva is heavily in production right now and they even brought the cast together recently for a celebration. They're currently paying people to make a movie. The chances Toho would allow the film to be delayed enough that it misses 2020 is slight seeing as they've put out a trailer and are even doing Eva2020 merchandise. Course crazier things have happened.

If this is real a more concrete announcement could be made on April 1st, maybe?"

Eva 3 + 1 will end with another Adam's preview that leads into Shin Ultraman! This is like how in the Antlar episode from the original Ultraman has the Aliens worshipping an Ultraman like statue that ended up being Noa from Ultraman Nexus to show that Noa can time space hop as a deity.

If Anno’s only serving as a producer / screenwriter for Shin Ultraman, that could open the door to the possibility of him directing Nausicaa 2 in 2022.

Think about it. His duties as a screenwriter are probably done already and the film is in preproduction now. As a producer, he doesn’t have to oversee as much day to day stuff as a director does. He obviously could have chosen to direct this (or co-direct like Shin Godzilla), but made a conscious decision not to.

Anno is on record as wanting to direct a sequel to Nausicaa and Miyazaki gave him his blessing to do so. Scriptwriting duties would be relatively simple, since they already have a manga to guide them, and I wouldn’t expect Anno to stray too far from it, out of respect for Miyazaki.

So yeah, Anno probably wrote Shin Ultraman within the last year or so, will finish directing Final next year, and will oversee production of SU in late 2020, early 2021 while easing into preproduction of Nausicaa 2 for a late 2022 release date.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

I wonder how "based on the original" this will be. I mean we already have a "based on the original" film in Ultraman (2004) called Ultraman the Next by fandom, which Anno seemed to be inspired by in the first 2 rebuild films. I would kind of prefer a new unique spin on this but seeing how a lot of his works are inspired across a lot of different Ultra series even if this was explicitly based on the original he could have the land of light and other Ultra Brothers make appearances. I could see him tossing in references to things still a bit mysterious to the fandom to try to tie the series more together, similar to how Tiga a lot of callbacks to the original Ultraman or Mebius to Taro. I can't imagine it being super fan service heavy like Geed though with call backs to the Rei Blood and other Tsuburaya shows. Will we get an evil A Type Ultra suit that slowly opens it mouth though? :lol:

If he's supposed to write a SEQUEL, the deviations introduced in the first film mean the manga can't be used as a guide. The first movie narratively merges two entire nations, kills off somebody key to the endgame, and so on.

Sagisu did the music for Higuchi's two live-action Attack on Titan films so I think him working on this is (almost) guaranteed.
