Animator Takeshi Honda Confirms Final Evangelion Film is in Production
In July, Hideaki Anno spoke to Oricon Style, where he stated that he was working hard on the final Rebuild film. It was comforting confirmation that production was moving ahead, however that could mean anything, from pre-production to simply assembling production staff. At MCM London Comic Con, animator Takeshi Honda was interviewed by UK Anime Network, and stated in regards to the final film:
“We’re actually working on the new Evangelion film right now. We’re working hard and it’ll come out eventually, so thanks for all of your patience – please continue to be patient, because it’s going to be the last episode.”
This is further confirmation that production is moving along, and coming from an animator, it feels much more tangible.
The full interview is definitely worth the read, and has a few good bits of interesting info about Eva’s original production.
