I'm bringing this thread back from the dead because there's an interesting bit of news: Miyazaki is now willing to let Anno do it if he wants to.

Sounds great!!........... But only if it comes AFTER 4.0. We need closure here.
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

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

Considering that Anno took inspiration from the final volume of Naushika to create Eva's mindrape scenes, this is more fitting than we perhaps think.

Heard about that the other day, I think it'd be interesting. I'd love for a sequel to be Studio khara's next project once Eva New Movie Edition is finished.

I'd be really happy to see it. Knowing how much I love Anno's visual style and direction, I could see it being another classic anime film.

Having read the manga now, I can see why Anno wanted (wabts?) to do Nausicaa 7. It would be amazing probably.
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!"

Bringing this back from the dead ocne again as it seemed at one point, Anno did make an offer to Ghibli to adapt Nausicaa in live action.
https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2021-04-26/ghibli-toshio-suzuki-reveals-live-action-nausicaa-offers/.172132

And Anno wasn't the only director to do so.

Fascinating! Didn't see that as a possibility!
Doing a sequel to Nausicaa as a live action film would certainly be a huge special effects production! If Anno thinks it's possible then damn. Would love to know what he's envisioning. It would be the largest live action film of his career by a giant margin.

I've been thinking lately that it's very likely Evangelion 3.0+1.0 might be Anno's final statement on anime. At least as the center directorial voice. I'm sure if Khara starts to diversify with anime projects from other directors he'll be involved as a producer but as a director I'm getting the vibe he's finished with anime if not for good then for at least the next couple years.

Nausicaa in live action doesn't sound like a particularly great idea to me, mostly because it would almost certainly change it's feel radically. I had always thought Hideaki wanted to do an animated sequel (reboot?), no this.
Not to mention that if it was to be a live action then it would need to be a complete rewrite of the manga, to make it all fit in a 2 hour movie or so, or it would be a series of movies.

It's not like I doubt Hideaki's ability to make a good live action movie, to me Love and Pop, Godzilla and especially Shiki Jitsu are all excellent movies, but I don't want something that to me is fatally linked to animation to be turned into a live action. Even if it's good it's just not the same thing.

I agree with the above. Would love to see Anno tackle Nausicaa, but I don't know how well it would work in a live action format. His live action films have been brilliant for the most part, but live action only works when it suits the story being told, and I don't know if that would be the case here. Still, I'm interested in whatever Anno decides to make.
