Lupin III: The First

GKIDS and Shout! Factory have announced that they will be bringing Lupin III: The First home this winter. The film is set to release for digital download on December 15, 2020 and as a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack or standalone DVD release on January 12, 2021. A steelbook edition of the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will also be available. The steelbook set will also include a 16 page art book featuring character concept art. Those of you who preorder the release through will receive an exclusive 18×24” lithograph.

The iconic “gentleman thief” Lupin III returns in an action-packed, continent-spanning caper, as Lupin III and his colorful underworld companions race to uncover the secrets of the mysterious Bresson Diary before it falls into the hands of a dark cabal that will stop at nothing to resurrect the Third Reich. The gang undertakes trap-filled tombs, aerial escapades and daring prison escapes with the trademark wit and visual finesse that have made LUPIN THE 3RD one of the most storied animation franchises in the world, in this electric adventure that is sure to steal the hearts of fans old and new.

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.
