The "LUPIN THE 3RD" franchise, from original creator Monkey Punch, began in 1967 and has spanned a variety of manga, TV, game, theme park ride, and musical adaptations, including The Castle of Cagliosstro (1979), the feature film debut from the acclaimed director Hayao Miyazaki. An official selection at the 2020 Annecy Film Festival, the highly anticipated film marks the first installment in CGI for the lauded animated franchise.

The all new English language dub film will feature the voices of Tony Oliver, Doug Erholtz, Michelle Ruff, Richard Epcar, and Lex Lang returning to their roles within the franchise, and Laurie C. Hymes, J. David Brimmer, and Paul Guyet joining the cast for this latest adventure.
