Meet Rebecca Rossellini, a new female protagonist in the upcoming blue jacket series and Lupins… wife?!

Rebecca Rossellini is a business owner with beauty to match even Lupin III’s mainstay heroine, Fujiko Mine. In the first episode of the new series, an invitation to Lupin and Rebecca’s wedding, addressed to Inspector Zenigata, arrives. Fujiko, Daisuke Jigen, Goemon Ishikawa gather at the ceremony.

But not all is what it seems. There is more to our new heroine than meets the eye!

Rebecca is the young president of a conglomerate based in the Republic of San Marino, the story’s setting. She has also worked as a model and an actress, and has become an international “gossip queen” due to rumors of affairs with many celebrities. She has an independent wild streak, as well as a secret she cannot tell anyone.

We’re excited at the possibility of a strong, lead female role in the new Lupin show and we cannot wait to learn more about her when the show airs in Japan this fall.

There is still no date set for the series on Italian channel RTI, but it was expected to premiere before the end of the month.
