The long-awaited sequel was delayed again due to COVID-19
While fans of the Eureka Seven franchise have been waiting years for the third film in the Hi-Evolution anime film series, EUREKA / Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution, the official Twitter account for the franchise announced the sad news that once again the film has been delayed, moving from Summer 2021 to Fall 2021 with no exact date announced as of yet.
The official website states that the coronavirus (COVID-19) had affected the production schedule of the film which forced the team to delay the film again. A new trailer for the film was also released alongside the announcement of the new release window.
The first of the three films premiered in Japan in September 2017. Its follow-up, ANEMONE / Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution 2, premiered in November 2018. Finally, EUREKA / Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution is scheduled for Fall 2021.
