The official website for the Evangelion anime revealed an image board drawn by Shin Evangelion project art director Tatsuya Kushida on Saturday. The image states that the final new Evangelion film, Shin Evangelion Gekijō-ban :||, is in production.
Khara, the studio behind director Hideaki Anno's new Evangelion films, confirmed in April that the next Shin Evangelion project is in production. Khara's official website also revealed in April that the studio was recruiting animators, modelers, technical staff, system engineers, and production managers.
The title for the final Evangelion film was announced back in 2012 as Evangelion Shin Gekijōban :||, or Evangelion: 3.0+1.0. The ":||" at the end of the Japanese title is meant to be the symbol used in music to denote repetition after reaching the end of a measure.
The first three films in the tetralogy, Evangelion: 1.0 You Are [Not] Alone, Evangelion: 2.0 You Can [Not] Advance, and Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, debuted in 2007, 2009, and 2012 respectively.
