Oh shi- New Evangelion Info

As some of you may know, Evangelion is coming back in the form of four new movies. New info and an apparent screenshot *orgasm*

Quote:
The title for the new film series is "Evangelion Shin Gekijou Ban", it will consist of 4 parts (First volume, Second part, Latter part and Final story) with the first part arriving in Japanese theaters in early summer, 2007.

The scenario of the 1st part will be written by Hideaki Anno with storyboard by Shinji Higuchi.

According to that information: -The content is quite different though the time base of the story is the same as the original TV series. - It will be a remake, however, it is not a re-creation but a "new work". - There will apparantly be a large amount of new material.

The cover illustration featuring characters Ayanami Rei and Nagisa Kaworu is by Shunji Suzuki. Suzuki had worked on the Shin Seiki Evangelion TV series as chief animator and on the End Of Evangelion movie as an animation director. Although not officially connected by name to the new project as yet, his image appearing on the Newtype cover would suggest involvement.

Images released so far depict Rei Ayanami in observably more provacative and animated moods than before. How will she change? The silent and submissively naturered character with her trademark blue hair and style made her an all time fan favorite of otaku everywhere, catapulting her to the top of the monthly Animage character poll for many, many issues.

The Newtype cover image featuring Rei and Kaworu symbolizes the new movie project. Japanese fans have questioned whether this is a hint at Rei And Kaworu's possibly being at the center of the new story or getting expanded focus in the course of the story of the films.

First off they mention the original 3 Eva films made 4.5 billion Yen in total at the Japanese boxoffice. The manga published by Kadokawa Shoten has exceeded 15 million copies sold over the existing 10 volumes. Videos and DVD's sold exceed 4.5 million copies and about 30 billion Yen. Total goods sales exceeds 100 billion Yen.

While the overall project is being called "Evangelion Shin Gekijou Ban" as mentioned in Newtype, the individual films are being titled "REBUILD OF EVANGELION".

The First Volume, REBUILD OF EVANGELION:01 is due out in early summer 2007 it will have an estimated running time of 90 minutes.

The Second Part, REBUILD OF EVANGELION:02 is expected in January 2008, also with a running time of 90 minutes.

The Latter Part + Last Program of the series, REBUILD OF EVANGELION:03-04 are expected in early summer (possibly June) of 2008, they will have an estimated length of 45 minutes each. Additionally, ANS has learned the 3rd part (Latter Part) (which corresponds to the events of the movies and episodes 25 and 26 of the TV series) and the 4th "Last Program" will be mostly new stories and material.

Parts 1-3 will use some key animation sequences from the original TV series, with new backgrounds (settings) and music. Shinji Higuchi is confirmed on the project and has already completed a new story board for the 1st film. A good deal of 3DCG animation will be implemented. The total economic effect of the 4 new Evangelion films is estimated at around 100 billion Yen or more.
Holy fucking hell, I can't wait for this shit.

It's not the End of Evangelion!™ [/pun]

I'm going to get shivers when the opening titles run for this movie. Seriously. Last time I got that was playing Metal Gear Twin Snakes for the first time. That nostalgia rush.

I'm a bit worried about this. I hope it means that it's using the same action scenes, and not the same actual cells. As in, using old Evangelion footage that's been beefed up.

Indeed.We do not want to watch the same thing again.
Well,I am sure it won;t be like that,there would be no use of a new Eva if they are going to repeat the thing which happened before.

Re: Oh shi- New Evangelion Info

Correct answer Jaxon =]
It'd be awful if it was like one of those Disney DVDs you get every time.
"TEH SAME SHIZZ BUT WE BOOSTED THE QUALITY. WEE111"

Has to have some good 3d animation, like those good anime movies have =[
Something as dynamic as Blood: The Last Vampire but twice as good >.>

I'm imagining an Eva CGI rendered as good as Transformers is.

Personally, I'm seeing a movie where characters are mostly traditionally drawn, and so are backgrounds, but when action scenes get along and things start moving, like the EVAs, we'll see 3D cel-shaded backgrounds and mechs.

There is indeed a live action version, but there's been no word on it for over a year. WETA did loads of pre-prod artwork for it, and it's being funded by ADV.

Re: Oh shi- New Evangelion Info

The last Evangelion movie disappointed me, they killed off a bunch of cool characters...hopefully these next movies make up for it.
