according to newtype, there will be four movies. the first three will re tell the story but include new scenes, characters, settings, etc..the fourth will give an alternate ending. Also, it's all supposed to be slightly less complex for the newbies to the series. The first movie is set for 2007, and the last three, 2008

I can already see Hideki Anno rolling around naked in a rubber pool full of 1000 yen notes.

As with the previous Eva movies this is just a desperate grab for cash.

Even though I heard it straight from Matt Greenfield's mouth & in person, I couldn't believe it was true until I saw the latest Newtype issue.

I heard that one of the movies will be a prequel. Something about Gendo & Yui. That might be boring. ?

I do believe End of Eva was made because everyone was so pissed at the original ending that Gainax recieved death threats and vandalism by angry fans. That one was made in an attempt to save their own skin.

But in reference to these new movies, yeah, I'd have to agree. Most good/popular things tend to get milked dry of every last penny that can be had. Take Pokemon, or Final Fantasy VII for example. But hey, if it's good and/or entertaining enough I might just go see it.

This is also news to me, I heard about it through reading this. But I will probably watch it the first chance I get. I am a big fan of the show and I love the style of the animation.

It'd be sweet if they did one to the plot "Angelic Days" (manga).
Now if only they'd do an extension to FLCL ;)

I heard that one or two of the movies will show what happens after the ending too.

Ok so this is the deal on the EVA movies they are shortening the tv seires to 3 2 hour features and re-doing alot of the animation and such....and attempting to make the seires easier to understand and adding some closure....Kind of like what they did with Zeta Gundam over the past 3 years or so.

However I doubt they will be successful. Come to think of it 4 years ago I did a research paper specifically on it. My teacher threw a fit, never read one line of my citation sources. (of which I had over 30 sources and in excess of 100 pages of printed source material) He said it was the most complex thing he's ever read and he didn't understand it...so he gave me a C.

If you cannot describe EVA in 20 pages how are you supposed to graphically redo this in a mere 6 hours? The depths of EVA went to a critical point which anime began its revolution and evolution to a deeper meaning because of Anno's work. Seriously, even the names of the characters would easily bring enough to mind, much less how they moved across the Sephiroth to the Tifaret (crown). We see the progression throughout the series and Gendo Ikari's role is LARGELY RESPONSIBLE for the progression.

Far be it for me to bring up repeated psychological and analysises of the cast; being so common and often misunderstood aspect of the series...I am saddened to say that the best depiction of this was found in a few (now non-existant) websites that specifically did an indepth analysis on Shinji in End of Evangelion.

Also another point was the depiction of the final two episodes. However during the last 6 episodes do we start to see changes in not only the aspect of the characters, but in the director himself that anchors the final glory of Evangelion. A clearly mental aspect of the creator which should never, and hopefully will not be discussed in the movies. While it was deep and amazing to play Ode to Joy during the final crisis, what would possibly be an alternative to the climatic battle (which is very anti-climatic in nature) and the pause of Shinji?

Although highly criticized as a way to reduce production costs and set off the problems of deadlines on the staff, Evangelion's paused scenes are so masterfully placed you can understand the progression of emotions, reasoning and internal conflict (a major defining point of the series) without the expression of any words, movements or even music.

The understanding of the movie seems to be as a resumming and retelling, but we've already seen this with Death and Rebirth. Granted it was a recap it did little to enhance or understand the extremely complex nature of Evangelion.

Seriously this movie will not be what its trying to live up to be. Every action, every moment and every line was done amazingly well in Evangelion. A series of movies will never do the story justice, Evangelion is just impossible to describe perfectly with so little time to do so.

I offer an example to my arguement: "What is the nature of Shinji?" If you can honestly answer this question within 20 pages of work I will reconsider my stance on this. 20 pages being the set standard for 30 minutes of a discussion. Feel free to try it out. I will reply with my own paper to anyone who seriously considers this challenge and PMs or submits their ideas here.

because I am to lazy to read all of this I will make a fast and quick point.
1. They are making remakes of the series ending episodes, death and rebirth, they will be directed by Hideaki Anno. they are to include 4 episodes.
2. these are not the same thing as the Live Action adaptations that are in reproduction. which are said to include 4 feature films.

:) I've heard about it on a random website. I hope it's as good as they it is. I liked the episodes.

This makes me weep. I understood Eva completely at the time, and even though now I'm more than a little rusty, I'm certain that watching it through again I could get it.

It's really a show for people with a bit of intellect by the end, though leading up to that point you can really just treat it like any other anime and get away with it. Therein lies the problem however, because if you aren't seeing the subtext throughout, which many people didn't for various reasons most of all a severe underestimate of the series's depth, OF COURSE the ending will be confusing because you haven't really been watching the show.

To castrate this and put it out there just so people can "get it" shows just how loud and lazy people really are. -_-;;

I agree with Otaking; the story is impossible to fully depict within that amount of time. They shouldn't try to make it "understandable" to the general audience. The story isn't meant to be simple; make them watch the whole thing and understand it for themselves.

The Live-Action movies aren't actually going ahead. Someone made a fake trailer on the net a few years ago and it's been circulating ever since, creating more rumours (it's on youtube at the moment). If you look really closesly at the "Live-Action" trailer, you can spot the movies the author borrowed clips from :D. So just to clarify - NO LIVE ACTION MOVIE OF EVA! :D

I'm pretty happy about that, the series is waay too complicated to put into Live-Action - it should stay as awesome anime :D

Here's an article on Wikipedia about the new anime movies:
In September 2006, the October edition of the Japanese anime magazine Newtype reported that the new cinema series "Rebuild of Evangelion" will be released in the summer 2007. On September 9, 2006, GAINAX's official website confirmed that "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. Hideaki Anno will write the scenario for the first movie and will be the general director and manager for the entire project. Kazuya Tsurumaki will direct the movies while Yoshiyuki Sadamoto will provide character designs and Ikuto Yamashita will provide mechanical designs. Shinji Higuchi will provide storyboards for the first movie. The first one will launch in Summer 2007, the second in January 2008, and the two final movies will be shown together in Summer 2008.

Yes, I agree. Eva is just too complicated for a live action movie... the special effects would cost so much.

I've read a bit about this in RLP. And, when I listen to the interviews of the people in the project, including Anno himself, I get very, very worried. When someone like Anno, who despised fanservice and catering to fans with all his soul, starts saying that they'll try to gear Rebuild more towards young teenagers and such, since it's being published in Shonen Ace... and that the main idea of this series is going to be entertainment... and that they will cut almost all of the tech jargon and symbolism in favor of simplicity (that is, commercialism)... and that some characters are going to change substantially (what I've been hearing about Rei is terrifying me)... well, I think it is clear this has a big chance of going horribly, Second-Impact-like wrong.

Still, I hope against hope. I believe it was Misato that said humans needed hope to keep on living, right? ;)
