First Evangelion 3.0+1.0 Footage Is Available to Watch Online

Neon Genesis Evangelion

The first footage for the upcoming Neon Genesis Evangelion movie Evangelion 3.0+1.0 is available to watch online.

The video, which you can view at this link in a now archived stream, starts around the 56 minute mark and was shown at Japan Expo in Paris. The video features subtitles in French, but not English, and is otherwise in Japanese. After a recap of the series so far (which is NSFW), the footage shows the first ten minutes of the upcoming film and shows a post-apocalyptic version of Paris. There are also a lot of high-octane action sequences in the short clip.

Evangelion 3.0+1.0 is the fourth "Rebuild" films, which are a rebooted movie series. The first movie was released in 2007, with sequels following in 2009 and 2012. The fourth film has suffered several major delays over the years.

The footage comes less than a month after Netflix aired its re-dub of the original series, which has come under fire due to changes in the translation and the removal of the song "Fly Me to the Moon" from the end credits.

Evangelion 3.0+1.0, which is directed by Hideaki Anno and produced by Studio Khara, is slated for release in 2020.
