Jeez, where have I been? TWO new Rebuild of Evangelion trailers found their way onto the Internets!! Okay, well, kinda really ONE new trailer but the one below has more Utada singing and Shinji moping than the one above.
The Utada song, “Beautiful World” appears to be the movie’s theme song. I think it fits in that “Kom susser todd” ironic kinda way. Will anyone besides Evangelion nuts know what that means? Don’t worry, Evangelion virgins should do well to keep up on this, a remake of the original TV series and movies.
Wikipedia says Rebuild of Evangelion “will consist of four movies. The first three movies will be an alternate retelling of the TV series (including many new scenes, settings, backgrounds, characters), and the fourth movie will be a completely new conclusion to the story; the series is intended to be much more understandable and accessible to non-fans than the original TV series and movies.”
The first movie, 1.0: You Are (Not) Alone, is out September 1st in Japan, a scant ten days from now.
Be still my beating heart.
