After coming to an abrupt end last year and leaving its speculative fandom hanging, Attack on Titan is soon returning with the third part of its last season, depicting the “Battle of Heaven and Earth” arc and concluding Hajime Isayama’s ambitious narrative after more than a decade.

The last time we saw our characters, the remaining Scouts had banded together with the Marleyan survivors to intercept Eren and stop the Rumbling from flattening the entire world. The protagonist-turned-villain won’t be disabused of his rampage, though, so the Survey Corps’ final fight will pit them against their old comrade in an ironic turn of events that will have the Eldians fighting to ensure the survival of Marley and beyond.

While there’s no definitive release date for the last batch of episodes, we expect them to arrive sometime in early 2023. That means a trailer is bound to come sooner or later, but MAPPA has decided to tease fans anyway by sharing a behind-the-scenes video. In it, the studio’s artists are hard at work adding the finishing touches to The Final Season – Part 3, and in between the frames you can catch designs for Eren’s Colossi as well as his abnormal Founding Titan form.

While we would’ve preferred to watch the story end earlier this year, MAPPA apparently wants to do the final story arc justice in terms of production design. Some fans even theorize that the studio has actually changed Isayama’s controversial ending, though to know whether that’s the case, we’re going to have to wait for that last-ever episode, which will presumably be titled “Toward the Tree on That Hill” like its manga equivalent.
