Right now, the @evangelion_co account on Twitter is posting some commentary on the show's 25th anniversary done by the cast members.


And GKIDS announced today for the 25th anniversary that they're releasing Evangelion + 2 movies on blu ray in the West in 2021!

This one seems to indicate that Asuka was auditioned separately. Curious. The rest is general celebratory messages from seiyuu.

Well, 41m16s x 4 = around 2h44m

That's LONG. Either the movie is very long or D part is disproportionally long.

Please, God. Let my suffering not be short.

In all seriousness, this seems unlikely... didn't they say something about the film being kept under 2 hours because of Japanese theaters' requests?

It's commonly speculated (edited lol) that 3.0 had a D part which was eventually cut with the kids walking in the desert and all. Which would be supposed supposed to last what, 20 minutes? At least in the 3.0 context it'd be very much an epilogue to that movie, so I can only imagine this 41 minute section is Anno's Big Goodbye to Evangelion. Man, oh, man.

Then again, that'd leave 80 minutes for the "main" story. I guess not.

Let us not forget about the structure in the Rebuilds, though: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jo-ha-ky%C5%AB

He probably wanted to do some additional touches to some favourite scene, or maybe it's not even properly finished like I was wondering.

Sorry for being a downer but nothing about the D part being 41 minutes long gives any indication Final will be longer than the standard 2h max cap. The final climax segment is always the longest in this film format and there's no reason to assume parts A-C are anywhere near as long.

Just for comparison I took a look at my Macross Frontier: Sayonara no Tsubasa guidebook as it has detailed breakdown of the movie. That film has 5 parts, A-E with the E part by far the longest (it covers the whole climax and one scene that is more leadup to it than anything).

In case of Sayonara:

E Part starts at 1h21min mark.

End credits start rolling at 1:49:30, total length is 1:54:22

So the final E segment is 28 minutes if we don't count the credits, 33 minutes if we count them. As Final will only have four parts anyhow I find it very unlikely D part being 41 minutes indicates the film is longer than the standard length.

Unfortunately that tweet revealed D part covers everything up to the "end roll". So it is confirmed Final will have end credits. Sad! No End of Evangelion cold ending stuff here.

This just came from khara’s second account and it translates to this.

(I heard that if it exceeds 2 hours, it will be related to the number of screenings / day)

I had a Twitter friend who can speak Japanese and they replied with this

“ The khara nigouki account just commented on the runtime actually. She said that from the sounds of things, if the movie ends up going over 2 hours, it will just impact the amount of times it can be screened per day in a cinema. So yeah they've presumably been allowed.”

Ahh.



"D Part sure is long. I wonder how the total length will be."



"I heard if the length exceeds 2 hours this will affect number of screening times/slots and days."

I read this as indirect admission they will do everything they can do to keep it under 2 hours. As was to be expected all along, of course.

In a weird way because of this awful awful year, the studios and the cinemas will hopefully go to Anno,

Look it’s been a shit year, this is the most anticipated anime film in the world right now, if you feel that the best of this movie will be served in over 2 hours, go for it. We’ll make it work.

Anno has given 17 years of his life to Evangelion, let him end it on his terms in the way he wants to end it

I finally read Anno's statement and he's more blunt about this really being the end for Eva than I expected.

Translation here

Troll Theory:

This D-Part is the beginning of the film(the missing D-Part from 3.0). The "end roll" will be like the mid-credits of End Of Eva, ending the 「:3.0」 part and ushering in the the 「+1.0」 part of the title.

So... are they gonna let Anno have full control of the lengh of the movie, or is he going to Cut anything?

Khara is Anno's own company and he has absolute authority on all Eva-related decisions like this. He's also the sole owner of the Original Creator credit too now.

So if he wants to make 3 hour Evangelion film he can.

However, given the way screening slots work in film theatre business making a 3 hour film means you will have far less opportunities to screen a film per day/per week/per month than if it stays under 2 hours. This directly and indirectly affects film's earning potential. Some theatres which would take a 2 hour anime film on rotation would skip on a longer anime feature without hestiation too.

Animation is also very expensive format to work in. One minute of extra animation costs far more to produce than one extra minute of digital live action film, for example.

It's because of practical and financial concerns like this you almost never have anime features that cross the 2 hour mark, and if they do it's only by few minutes. Later Hayao Miyazaki films regularly pass the 2 hour mark, but then again those are Miyazaki films.

The longest anime films of all time are some old Yamato movies and Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya and even they are in 2h40-45min range IIRC. While I would love to get 3 hour Evangelion film it's never going to happen.

I would love a really long Eva film, but everything points to a film that's around 2 hours. And knowing Anno, there's probably going to be so much to decipher that it could just as well be a 4-hour film, since at least 2 viewings is necessary to get anything resembling a coherent view of what happens. EoE was 89 minutes and that has enough for a 6-hour miniseries from Kubrick/Tarvosky/Lynch/Fellini.

Xard, when it comes to Miyazaki, the only film of his that is substantially over the 2-hour mark is Princess Mononoke at 133 minutes and that was supposed to be Miyazaki's last film (dude's incapable of retirement)- it makes sense that no one would bat an eye. Everything else over the 2-hour mark doesn't go over 126 minutes, so it's not that big a difference and I don't imagine any big businessman particularly caring.

Let's hope that if something's cut (I hope not) it' s going to be' on the home video release.
For now, the lengh of the movie is 51:56:02, with four parts missing.
