Being already March 8 in Japan, the release date of the fourth and last film of the Rebuild of Evangelion film project, entitled Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.0 Thrice Upon a Time, has finally arrived. This morning the first twelve minutes of the film were broadcast, although they coincided with what was already broadcast a few years ago at a convention in Paris.
«The opening day has finally arrived. We would like to request your cooperation in taking precautionary measures to prevent the spread of infections within movie theaters, as well as in general waiting facilities, elevators and stairways. Please do not discuss the events of the film outside of theaters, be considerate of those members of the audience who have not seen it and who may be around you, "wrote the official Twitter account.
The film will also be released in mass on IMAX, MX4D and 4DX screens, although the extension of the period of state of emergency in the Tokyo Metropolitan Area is limiting the operations of cinemas in the area. That is why many say that the film will not have the box office performance that would have been expected under normal conditions, as it did with Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-hen.

- Takeishi Honda is in charge of the animation direction.
- Yutaka Izubuchi is in charge of character design.
- Shiro Sagisu is in charge of the composition of the soundtrack.
