Pretty exciting news, or not for the NGE franchise. Actually this also might be considered old news, but with my 1000+ Google reader and real life, leaves me now to write an entry on it.I caught this news as a clipping from Japan Zone, today – and thought to post it here. They are probably beating the dead horse, but with the last movie as a recap of that one episode… what made it stand out was Utada Hikaru’s new song, still if you don’t mind the angsty emo pilot, and enjoy this futuristic science fiction world, then this news woudl interest you, I am interested because of Ayanami Rei’s involvement:

It was announced this morning that the latest big screen anime version of “Evangelion” is to be released in the early summer of 2009. The September 2007 release “Evangelion Shin Gekijoban: Jo” (New Theatrical Version: Beginning) was the first of a series of four movies to be directed by Anno Hideaki. The second episode, which features an appearance by popular character Asuka Langley Soryu, is entitled “Evangelion Shin Gekijoban: Ha” (New Theatrical Version: Destruction). The Evangelion franchise was born as a manga in 1995 and has become hugely popular, with a multitude of spinoffs in various media. The first three of the latest movie series are a retelling of the TV series and feature new scenes, characters, and more advanced CG technology. The fourth film will present a totally new ending to the story. The series is also meant to be more accessible to movie fans who are not familiar with the complex world of Evangelion.
