GKids gets Lupin: The First.

Thanks for the tip, @bolt7. https://mobile.twitter.com/GKIDSfilms/status/1243206157008855041 Official site here: https://gkids.com/films/lupin-the-3rd-the-first/ Hope it doesn't get confused with this: https://www.amazon.com/Lupin-3rd-Complete-First/dp/B00IZHPOCE/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?keywords=lupin+the+first&qid=1585246650&sr=8-2 Anyway, it made Indiewire: https://mobile.twitter.com/IndieWire/status/1243216140148649990 Gonna try to get it an Oscar nom? Good luck. Also, while I haven't seen the film, it's not a sequel to Cagliostro, Fujiko, or Part V. In other words, if you're coming here for the first time, you should be able to watch those separately without missing out. But they have varying levels of appropriate content.

Great news! Hoping the film will finally get a release in the UK now (either theatrical or streaming)

Although its odd that Discotek don't have the rights - I thought they would have NA rights for all Lupin works?

Nope. Lupin's popular enough to have a lot of licensors. Plus, DT isn't used to theatrical.
