The post also shared some early concept art for Unit 08.


A teaser for the film debuted with screenings of Mamoru Hosoda's Mirai film on Friday, revealing that the film is slated to open in Japanese theaters in 2020.

Khara, the studio behind director Hideaki Anno's new Evangelion films, confirmed in April 2017 that the next Shin Evangelion project is in production. Khara's official website also revealed in April 2017 that the studio was recruiting animators, modelers, technical staff, system engineers, and production managers. Tatsuya Kushida, the films' art director, revealed an image board for the final movie in July 2017.

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.
