Despite the confirmation of the fourth movie, it still seems to be a thing of the future. So when can we finally expect the finale of this series to premiere? There are several reasons as to why the much awaited movie’s release has been delayed. Read on to find out more.
Evangelion 4.0 Official Announcement
The news for the renewal of the Evangelion series for a 4th release came out along with the third movie itself. It is indeed coming out but we might have to wait a bit longer due to the outbreak of the pandemic.
Evangelion 4.0 Release Date
The studio responsible for the production of the movie has released two teaser trailers as of now to keep the audience engaged. However, the onset of the pandemic has put a break to the process and therefore no release date has been announced yet. We are anticipating a 2021 release. Let’s wait and see what happens.

Why was Evangelion 4.0 delayed?
After the production of Evangelion 3.0, Anno fell prey to depression and stated that he couldn’t work on the 4th installment. He was later approached by Toho Co. Ltd. to reboot the famous name of the Godzilla movies and direct a project title “Shin Godzilla”. The working process of this enterprise put a full stop to the Evangelion 4.0. Then, finally, in 2017, the studio claimed the production of the final movie was underway.
The ongoing development of the film was again put on hold in April 2020 due to the pandemic. So, we will have to be patient for this release. It will definitely come out but not as soon as we’d expected it to.
The plot of the third movie revolves around Shinji waking up on a dilapidated Earth 14 years later. He’s caught up in the loop of dying and being born again while having to face the angels as the world is headed in the direction of massive annihilation.
The End of Evangelion is streaming online on Netflix.
