TOHO has revealed the first trailer for the new animated CG film Lupin III The First, which is based on Monkey Punch’s popular and long-running Lupin III franchise.

Featured above, the new trailer shows off the franchise’s first 3D, CG feature-length film. Details on the plot of the film are scant, but the tagline on the website reads “Come on, let’s get started.”

Takashi Yamazaki is directing and writing the film, which is actually the third movie after 2014’s Lupin the III: Jigen’s Gravestone and 2017’s Lupin the III: Chikemuri no Ishikawa Goemon.

Lupin III The First is premiering on December 6th of this year.
