It’s Official. Rebuild of Evangelion 2.0 on June 27th, 2009

Evangelion 2.0

According to the official Evangelion Website, the second installment of Rebuild of Evangelion, You can (not) advance, will be in theatres on June 27th this summer. This means that the rumor from earlier was in fact true.

Rebuild 2.0 AsukaEvangelion 2.0Advanced tickets will go on sale on March 14th nationwide (Japan) for 1,300円 along with a set of “Be@rbrick” toys designed by Sadamoto and produced by Medicom Toy Corporation, which includes Asuka (1600円), Rei, and a mystery character. The ticket agency provided a list of the theatres the movie will be playing at. There still isn’t very much information regarding the tickets, but I assume it’s similar to the 1.0 advance tickets, where the tickets themselves were actually a voucher that can be redeemed at any number of theatres. Updates to follow once more information is released.

Update: (3/25)
Animate, one of the outlets that sold advance tickets to the first movie, has already started selling the first of the 2.0 Advance Tickets for the expected 1,300円 that includes a clear file. Also on the page, they are selling tickets for the April 18th launch that includes a “Countdown Calendar” for an extra 683円.
