Studio Khara Hiring Animators & Technical Crew For Evangelion 4.0 Movie

It looks like the cruel angel’s thesis will be completed again, after all.

Animation producer Studio Khara is currently hiring staff members for the upcoming Reuild of Evangelion film. Khara is specifically looking for animators, modelers, technical staff, system engineers, and production managers.

Applications must be received by early June, and positions will be filled as qualified candidates are selected.

Earlier this month, Khara revealed that Shin Evangelion Gekijo-ban :||, the final chapter in the Rebuild of Evangelion films, is in the works. As of press time, though, details on a release have yet to be confirmed.

Last year, During a press conference for Shin Godzilla, Anno stepped forward to address the Shin Evangelion Gekijo-ban :||, stating:

First of all, I’d like to apologize. I’ve kept you waiting for the new Evangelion for a very, very long time. I am truly sorry. […] Evangelion can best be described as my soul; it is a work that chips off parts of me. The previous work, Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo (Evangelion Shin Gekijoban: Q), wore me down until I wasn’t able to make anything anymore.

Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo hit Japanese theaters in November 2012. The film was produced by Khara, and written by Hideaki Anno. Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (Neon Genesis Evangelion, Summer Wars) provided character designs, while directorial duties were shared by Anno, Kazuya Tsurumaki, Mahiro Maeda, and Masayuki.

Funimation currently holds the domestic rights to the first three Evangelion films. The company released Evangelion 3.33 on February 2, 2016, following a cooperative rewrite of the dub script with Khara.
