Sounds *less* appealing on the whole. Don't need entry level Eva after
10 years of the original. :P

More or less, yes.
I have read Producer Ohtsuki's Newtype interview on the new Eva
movies from the scans posted on the web. (blurry, tiny print *gah*)
Here is an excerpt of IMO the relevant points:
"It will be a work that can be enjoyed even if you have not
seen the TV series. I want old hard-core fans and even fans who just
know Eva from pachinko to view it as a single (i.e. stand-alone)
movie. We welcome first-time viewers, so the contents will be
simpler, but we don't intend to make something on a level that can be
understood just by spacing out and watching it.
"When you say 'Eva' there are probably people who are reminded
of a worldview steeped in mystery, but this time it looks like those
types of elements will be kept to a minimum.
"This is because techniques such as intentionally scattering
difficult to understand phrases to create uncertainty are 12 years
old. The essence of this project is to foil all expectations that
everyone has towards Eva."
