Lupin The Third is one of the most beloved anime icons in Japan who has been barely heard of in the U.S., apart from being a fun footnote in esteemed director Hayao Miyazaki’s career. The cocky gentleman thief created by Monkey Punch has been the star of manga, anime, feature films, video games, musicals, and many, many TV specials. But he’ll be making his big, flashy theatrical U.S. debut in a totally new format: CG animation. American anime fans have been waiting for the first CGI Lupin III movie, aptly titled Lupin III: The First, for a long time since the film first came out in Japan in 2019, but a new trailer finally reveals the U.S. release date for the film as well as the English dub cast. Watch the new Lupin III: The First trailer below.
