The release of the second Neon Genesis Evangelion movie has been announced as being due in early summer 2009, with it entitled ヱヴァンゲリヲン新劇場版:破 (Evangelion Shingekijoban: Ha), and carrying the official English title of Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance.
Additionally, their promotional poster has been updated with what appears to be the new female character.
The sequel forms the second part of the movie version of the TV anime, ヱヴァンゲリヲン新劇場版:序 (Evangelion Shingekijoban: Yo), officially Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone. The first is on the verge of receiving a general international release, and there are apparently set to be four movies in total so a long wait looks to be in store.
New characters and otherwise are promised, along with the elements which have featured thus far, in a title which is “looking to explore new ground”.
Much of these details were released previously, but with the opening of the 2.0 official site interest seems to have been rekindled.
