Shinichiro Shirakura was the executive producer, with Daiju Koide and Kazutoshi Wadakura credited as producers. Muneyuki Kii is credited for planning and production. Tōru Mori was the line producer, and Masanori Kawashima was the associate producer.

Anno directed, scripted, and produced the film. Shotaro Ishinomori is credited as the original creator.

In addition to co-writing and directing the Evangelion franchise, Anno is the writer and chief director of the Shin Godzilla film and the writer of the Shin Ultraman film.
