That's excellent. Unlike the movie itself, which is just okay.

Good to see Tony Oliver returning as Lupin along with the rest of the cast (including Michelle Ruff), cause other than Lupin (depending on the Recording studio) and his Studiopolis roles (Minato in Naruto and Ulquiorra Cifer in Bleach) he seems to primarily does his voice work at Bang Zoom! nowadays given that he's one of the primary voice directors at the studio, on top of that he hasn't done any work at NYAV Post.

Good to see. Not a fan of Laurie Hymes but she can't be any worse than the Japanese voice.

It's great to know that the english speaking cast was kept intact, now I wonder if they tried to keep the original voices for other language dubs as well, I would like to see this movie dub in spanish with the usual voices for Lupin and his gang but the last Lupin III work dubbed into spanish was the crossover movie with Detective Conan in 2016, and only Lupin and Fujiko kept their original voices. I hope that this movie gets distributed here in latin-america, I want to hear Ricardo Tejedo as Lupin again (in neutral spanish Lupin shares the same voice with Doraemon, Gollum and Jack Sparrow).

Laurie C. Hymes as Laetitia

I think her middle initial "C" should be taken out because it's preventing her name in the article from linking to her page: person#152605

Ah, Michelle Ruff, she's a great actress, she'll do well.

One thing I'm wondering though is, I'm not all familiar with the Lupin III franchise, haven't seen a single episode nor movie, so would this movie (which has Pixar quality animation, not lying) be a good introduction?

Im just glad to see Michelle Ruff is still doing voice work, which means she can return as Rukia next year for Bleach

As far as Lupin plots go this is pretty basic but it's definitely worth a watch for a beginner.

Outside of the 2 Character films (Bloodspray of Goemon and Tombstone of Jigen) and Crossovers (Lupin x Conan) the films operate just fine as entry points as they are stand-alone entries. This one is no different.

Unlike Rukia, Michelle can actually draw!

Michelle Ruff's been voicing Fujiko since 2003 so.....voicing her is like second nature to her at this point

(Not trying to be mean or anything, just pointing this out)

I'm glad some companies have some sense about keeping the original voice cast as opposed to other movies like the recent casting controversies with the new Scooby Doo CGI movie. But it would have been weird if GKids went with a Hollywood celebrity cast for Lupin.
