Classic manga Lupin III is heading back to the big screen with its very first 3DCG movie from Dec. 6!
Titled Lupin III The First, the movie is directed by Stand by Me Doraemon‘s Yamazaki Takashi, and is the first installment in the franchise to be released after author Monkey Punch’s death. The story will revolve around Lupin’s quest to get his hands on a certain artifact – the only thing that he has ever failed to steal.
Now a hugely popular media franchise, Lupin III was first adapted as a TV anime in 1971 and inspired movie hits like Miyazaki Hayao’s The Castle of Cagliostro.
Lupin III The First opens in Japan on Dec. 6.
