Attack on Titan is approaching the end, and a new teaser gives us a preview of what we can expect from the show’s final season.

After launching in 2013, the anime adaptation of Attack on Titan has become one of the most popular shows of all time. It follows the story of Eren Yeager and his friends, Mikasa and Armin, as they attempt to take down the fearsome Titans that wreaked havoc on their hometown.

When Season 3 ended last year, it was revealed that the upcoming Season 4 would be the show’s last outing. The action will kick off on December 7, 2020, and naturally, anticipation for the anime’s looming return is at fever pitch.

The first TV spot for Attack on Titan’s fourth season has debuted online, and it teases the action that’s coming in the show’s sure-to-be-stunning conclusion. There’s titans raining from the sky – a pretty terrifying sight – and more from our hero Eren and the Scout Regiment.

What will happen in Attack on Titan Season 4?

It’s expected that the new season will follow a new cast of characters who exist in the enemy land of Marley, before leading into the highly-anticipated final battle between the Eldians and those who have kept them captive for decades.

As previously announced, Season 4 will bring Eren and his team’s story to a close. While fans are understandably upset that this is the final season, it’s nice to know that the Attack on Titan team will get to provide a proper conclusion on their own terms.

Back in May, fans got their first look at Season 4 with the release of a mind-blowing trailer, although its original October release schedule was pushed back to December due to the ongoing global health crisis.

Attack on Titan Season 4 will be available to stream on Crunchyroll and FunimationNOW. The animation process will this time be handled by MAPPA instead of WIT Studio, who worked on the first three seasons.

While we patiently wait for Attack on Titan to return to our screens on December 7, 2020, we’ve rounded up everything we know about Season 4 – including plot details and casting – right here.

A Princess Mononoke cosplayer brought the film’s protagonist San to life with a stunning costume. The artist’s breathtaking transformation into the Studio Ghibli character will leave fans speechless.

In 1997, renowned director Hayao Miyazaki debuted his groundbreaking seventh film, Princess Mononoke. The environmentalist-themed story was so popular, it’s still the eighth highest grossing movie of all time in Japan.

A talented cosplayer celebrated the influential anime by bringing it to life with a jaw-dropping outdoor photoshoot. The artist’s incredible take on wolf girl San is so good, it’s almost as if the protagonist has clawed her way out of the screen.

The film centers on protagonist Ashitaka, who leaves his village after tragically becoming infected by a corrupted spirit. The banished prince embarks on a quest to look for a cure and confront the curse that corrupted the animal that wandered into his home.

Cosplayer ‘Jennifer Sonntag’ brought the movie’s second lead character, Princess San, to life with her stunning cosplay which she shared on Instagram. Photographer ‘jospixelart’ captured the artist posing in the heroine’s iconic white and blue outfit next to a wolf.

Jenny nailed San’s signature attire, which includes a white fur cape that drapes over her back as well as her red and gold warrior mask which she uses to cover her face while battling against human enemies. She even included her scarlet facepaint which sits under each eye.

In another shot posted on her social media, the artist re-created a scene from the Ghibi film where the lead character sits on a rock. Jen looks ready to fight with her wolf family as she holds her prop dagger while having her headdress down. The outdoor backdrop gorgeously ties the whole thing together and could easily be mistaken for a screenshot from the film.

Despite releasing over 23 years ago, Princess Mononoke still continues to be one of the most influential anime films of all time. Its dark themes and gritty depiction of violence was a departure for Miyazaki’s usually child-friendly projects.

Those looking to catch the classic movie are in luck as it can currently be watched right now on HBO’s streaming service MAX. Also in 2019, Studio Ghibli struck a deal with Apple TV and Amazon to sell all of their theatrical releases digitally for the very first time.
