Discotek Media has announced that they will be releasing Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro on 4K UHD on January 26, 2021.
This will be great news for fans of Hayao Miyazaki, as this film was his directorial debut in 1979. The release will include Japanese audio and both English dubs, as well as English subtitles. Extras include a 7.1 Japanese audio track, a deleted storyboard opening, an isolated score, and art galleries in 4K, among other extras.
Discotek Media describes the film as follows:
In the twilight of his career, master thief Lupin the Third’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 European nation of Cagliostro to exact revenge. Not everything goes as planned; 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, however, as Lupin and Jigen – together with Lupin’s unpredictable ex-girlfriend 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 the girl, evade the cuffs of his long-time nemesis Inspector Zenigata, and uncover the secret treasures of The Castle of Cagliostro?
Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro will release on 4K UHD on January 26, 2021 and is available for pre-order now.
