In case you haven’t heard, the classic anime series Lupin III is getting a 3D animated feature film this year. Now, non-2D adaptations of anime classics (especially live-action one) don’t tend to be all that great, but the new Lupin III film actually looks amazing!
Watch the first trailer for the Lupin III 3D animated movie here:
The new trailer shows that the 3D movie absolutely nails the feel of the classic anime series (using the original opening song helps a lot as well). The series’ loveable cast of characters are also back in this movie. Joining master thief Arsène Lupin III are marksman Daisuke Jigen, samurai Ishikawa Goemon XIII, fellow thief/love interest Fujiko Mine, and Inspector Koichi Zenigata.
The Lupin III 3D animated movie is set to release in Japanese theaters on December 6, 2019, and it will be distributed by Toho Pictures. There’s no word yet on an international release for the Lupin III movie though.
