Part of Heist!
In the twilight of his career, master thief Lupin III’s latest and greatest caper has hit a snag. What should’ve been bags of cash from a national casino turns out to be expert counterfeits! Together with his partner-in-crime Jigen, Lupin heads to the remote nation of Cagliostro to exact revenge.
Not everything goes as planned, however, as the two encounter Clarisse, a royal damsel in distress being forced to marry the sinister Count Cagliostro against her will. Saving her won’t be easy, and Lupin and Jigen — together with the unpredictable lady thief Fujiko and the swordsman Goemon — must fight their way through a trap-filled castle, a deadly dungeon, and an army of professional assassins. Can Lupin rescue Clarisse, evade the cuffs of his long-time nemesis Inspector Zenigata, and uncover the secret treasures of the Castle of Cagliostro?
Academy Award-winning director Hayao Miyazaki makes his feature film debut in this beloved chapter of the LUPIN THE 3RD saga.
“It isn't just a stellar installment in the ongoing Lupin adventure, it's a Lupin story so specific and carefully calculated that it helped define the character for decades to come.” —Tasha Robinson, Polygon “THE CASTLE OF CAGLIOSTRO begins with a robbery and a car chase, which makes it sound like plenty of other cartoonish action films. But this one really is animated, with the vivid color palette and peculiar pop sensibility that have turned other Japanese animated features (notably AKIRA) into cult favorites.” —Janet Maslin, New York Times (1992)
