We don’t hear about Japanese anime films fairly often right here at The A.V. Membership (although if you wish to hear about Gundam, we’ve got you covered), however it’s considerably uncommon that an anime film comes alongside that appears as wonderful as Lupin III: The First—and we don’t imply that it looks as if it’ll be an incredible film, we imply it actually appears to be like wonderful. The film is coming to Japanese theaters later this yr, however it’s newly related to us within the U.S. as a result of Gkids has simply picked up the distribution rights for North America. Which means it’ll get launched right here, and Deadline says Lupin III: The First will even get an English dub (in case you’re the form of one who prefers dubs, which is a very acceptable approach to get pleasure from anime and anybody who says in any other case is fallacious). The film, as Deadline explains, is in regards to the world’s best gentleman thief making an attempt to resolve a thriller tied to a secret group’s try and “resurrect the Third Reich”—all whereas goofing round together with his thief buddies and dodging a hapless detective.
However significantly, simply take a look at what director Takashi Yamazaki has finished right here:
Have a look at it. Clearly it will be hyperbolic to say that CG animation has by no means appeared higher, however… has it? These don’t appear to be glorified online game cutscenes, the characters don’t appear to be soulless puppets, and all the things simply strikes with a little bit of cartoonish vibrancy.
By comparability, right here’s 1979’s Lupin III film The Fort Of Cagliostro, which was directed by legendary anime filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki and options hand-drawn animation—a format that’s historically way more energetic and fewer sterile. The CG model appears to be like equally good!

Anyway, we don’t know when Lupin III: The First will will get its North American launch, but when Gkids simply finalized the deal now and it’s going to do an English dub, it most likely received’t be coming any time quickly.
