I don't think there's much risk in waiting until next summer. I think it's the smartest move for everyone involved.

Off topic:

This shouldn't take over the conversation but everyone should listen to this episode of this podcast. Some governments are fucking things up royally (cough my country the US cough) but scientists have been making amazing strides this entire time. The entire scientific community is facing this one problem and there's light at the end of the tunnel. Vaccines and treatments are much farther along than people realize and by the end of the summer season the world will likely know the names of several good vaccine treatment candidates with over 50% success. The Oxford trials sound especially promising having been given to 11,000 people and shown no averse reactions yet. The first generation vaccines are likely going to be start being made available before the end of 2020 with more successful generations of vaccines and treatment to follow in short succession.

I recommend everyone give this episode a listen, it's full of good news, and then maybe the discussion can be continued somewhere else on the site.

Back on topic:

I also still feel while the Eva characters are not the official mascots of the ceremony, Khara/Toho/Toei have or want some kind of marketing deal/synergy with the Tokyo Olympics that they want to profit off of - the Evangelion 2020 logo is pretty much a copy of the Tokyo 2020 logo - and the release of the film will be moved to around the time of the games. I'm thinking of April to June of 2021. But I could be wrong of course. It's just a thought.

Feel like they should have set a date for next year already if it's going to end up being a year delay. Save fans from hoping for a release by the holidays and just put out more new info to speculate over and bide time.
Don't really see the similarities with the logos tbh, they're pretty different.

I think khara knows as much as we do honestly. The world is essentially planning on a weekly basis. What is the point of announcing something months in advance when it's impossible to predict when/if there will be a COVID spike by then?

Well, even a generic "Coming in 2021" isn't that complicated to announce.

Khara's inability to do basic PR has always been a struggling part about following the Rebuilds.

It still kinda blows my mind that the original release date of June 27, 2020 came and went without a peep from them.
They don't need to make it a spectacle but it was the first time they've missed a set-in-stone release date and a mere 30 second teaser of new footage or a cool graphic saying"Thank you for waiting and we will release the film when we can" would have been the smart thing to do from a marketing and PR perspective.
Fans worldwide where all talking about Eva that day and it would have been a treat for the fans and put any request for some news on hold for a while.

Ah well. Khara has always been curious in that regard.

Tbh I haven't been following the news that much regarding treatment for COVID, but that sounds promising. Maybe it'll actually be summer 2021.9 years after 3.0.
Ahh this is still depressing.

Some sign of life of the film this july would be exciting.
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"

All the Rebuild music soundtracks have been released on streaming services now all at once including the Eva-Extra app, with 3.33's soundtrack on the Blu-ray bonus CD released for the first time.
Unfortunately, the only one available outside of Japan on Spotify is 1.0's soundtrack licensed by Milan Entertainment which was previously on there and has returned after being taken down for a month or so.

Hhmm. Thinking about it retroactively now, was it normal to have no information out on the soundtrack back in March when the movie was still seemingly on track for three months from then?

I feel like a lot of other anime films and tv series have pre-order information for their soundtracks and singles available months before they actually come out.

Does anyone know the timeline for the previous Rebuild soundtracks and singles?

----------------------Movie------CD
Evangelion 1.0---Sept 1st-----Sept 26
Evangelion 2.0---June 27------July 8th
Evangelion 3.0--Nov 17-------Nov 28th

Always less than a month after the film... When they were announced is not inmediately avaliable info...
But I'd suppose it was shortly before the film's release date. Not that track names would've been spoilery, given the names given...

I do wonder how their relationship with PR will change after the Rebuilds. Evangelion is one of the most popular franchises in that country, so it's feasible to score huge profits while doing little more PR than they're currently doing. If Khara tries to create an entirely new film/property after Evangelion, they're gonna need to promote it a lot better than cryptic teasers followed by months of silence.

idk, I enjoy that Khara doesn't do the "announcement of an announcement" route. I think marketing like that is tiring.

On the other hand, that leaves us with literal years before we get to know anything of a project we've invested ourselves into :um:

What? Who on their right mind would go see a movie they know nothing about?
Why would anyone be interested in watching a movie that had no trailer or some sort of sinopsis?
Hell, even a poster can tell a lot about it!

A wild and new experience, yes, but a commercial failure. It's what a lack of good PR does to a movie.

For a random new franchise noone has ever heard of? Sure.

For the number 28 highest grossing media franchise of all time globally? Yeah I don't think so. Just having the name on the poster in the cinemas and nowhere else would be enough to make even the shittiest movie with no pr done whatsoever at least break even, because people will want to see what this new thing is about

On the topic of 3.0+1.0 merch, BigBadToyStore is already putting up pre-orders for the new Unit 02 figure that will appear in the new movie.

Honestly, through this entire trilogy, no other unit has suffered more greatly than Unit 02. I mean, look at it! It's definitetly seen better days.

Kinda almost wish there was going to be a 5th movie so by that point all that's left of Unit 02 is one of the horns that they'd haphazardly superglue onto something else and Asuka could thinly argue "It's still Unit 02!"
