The rumor started when Khara posted on Sunday a screenshot of a timecode of "05:59:50:00." from the latest "dailies" footage check of the movie's last part to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original Neon Genesis Evangelion TV series.
Khara explained in their latest post that movie productions usually divide the parts of a movie into rolls (or reels) starting with 1st roll with 1:00:00:00 and the "5:59:00:00" timecode posted is the 5th roll representing the film, not 5 hours and 59 minutes.
