The Evangelion franchise is about to conclude. Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 will be its final ride. However, Part 4 of the franchise is not coming any time soon as the release has been postponed due to the ongoing Coronavirus plight. Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 was ready for a June release in Japan.
Talking about the official trailer of Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0, none has been released yet. Studio Khara hasn’t spoken anything about that. The fandom is upset for the prolonged delay (8 years, to be precise).
Some fans are actually questioning whether “Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0” is for real or not.
“Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 is a fake ass movie, bro. It just ain’t real. How many times it fate gonna delay this movie?”, tweeted a fan account on hearing about the delay.
Acknowledging the fandoms feelings, @khara_inc, the production house tweeted:
