Evangelion 3.0+1.0 Teaser To Be Screened At Japan Expo and Anime Expo

In a twitter post then a blog post, Studio Toei reveals “Operation 0706”, which happens to fall on July 6th this year. The event will occur simultaneously in Paris, France during Japan Expo, in Los Angeles and Shanghai during Anime Expo, specific places throughout Japan and other yet unannounced world-wide locations. The first 10 minutes and 40 seconds of the 4th and final Evangelion movie (all the footage up to the first title card), titled “”Shin Evangelion Gekijōban AVANT 1”, will be screened at the event.

Additionally, Toei will release a free Evangelion smartphone app on July 1st called “EVA-EXTRA”, the same name designated for the magazines related to the new movies that contain extra content, and is said to contain more information about “Operation 0706” as well as special content on the day of July 6th. The iOS/Android app will also have all of the previous seven EVA-EXTRA booklets available digitally as well as some other related bonus material that’s exclusive to the app.

This will be the first time we’ll see any actual footage from the last movie so expect the internet to be flooded with blurry/shaky mobile phone videos of the 10+ minutes of Evangelion 3.0+1.0 on July 6th, until the footage is officially released at some point later. Exciting times. (Note: a short teaser was shown with Mari, but we don’t know if that was actual cuts from the finished movie).
