- ...Do you really want to stay here?
- Wouldn't it be nice if everyone would just die?
- The fate of destruction is also the joy of rebirth
- Shinji Ikari: I'm so fucked up.
- The film was based on the scripts Gainax originally intended to use for episode 25 of the TV series, but were unable to due to budget and production problems, and TV Tokyo's refusal to allow the episode to be produced for television broadcast. The second half of the film builds upon the script to create an ending concurrent to the one shown in the TV series.
The red dummy plugs we see injected into the Mass Production Eva series before they launch are labeled "Kaworu".
Gendo Ikari's muted final words to Ritsuko were never scripted. There was originally meant to be an explosion in the background making the line inaudible, but even after it was cut Anno still wanted the line to be unheard. Yuriko Yamaguchi (voice of Ritsuko Akagi) had difficulty delivering the subsequent line "Liar" without knowing what Gendo had said. Anno gave her one small hint as to what the line was, and she instantly knew exactly how to delivery the line. To this day, only Anno and Yamaguchi know what that hint was.
One shot in the live-action sequence shows three women with their backs turned to the camera who are dressed exactly like the characters Rei, Asuka, and Misato.
An alternate sequence was originally planned for the live-action portion of the film. In it, Shinji dreams of a world that exists without him. The sequence follows live-action versions of Asuka, Misato, and Rei in various stages of their daily lives, without NERV, Angels, or Evangelions. It ends with Asuka being followed by an "invisible" Shinji, who realizes in monologue that this is not reality. As the transition from live-action back to animation is made, Rei and Shinji discuss the nature of dreams vs. reality, as seen in the final cut of the film. Portions of this alternate sequence can be seen in the original theatrical trailer, which is shown on the R1 DVD before the movie plays.
