Lupin III will be getting a new animated film, and its title is Lupin III the First. It will also be the franchise’s first 3D CG feature-length film as well. And now, Toho has released the first trailer for the upcoming movie:

As the trailer announced, Takashi Yamazaki (Stand By Me Doraemon) will be directing the film. It also revealed that it will open in Japanese theatres starting 6th December 2019.

Unfortunately, this will also be the first Lupin III film since creator Monkey Punch passed away last April. However, the mangaka does know about the film project and even released a message that he was excited to see a fresh take on his characters. He released the message on October 2018, a few months before his passing. Sadly, he will never get to see the film completed.
