A sometimes underappreciated film which served as the directorial debut of legendary Japanese animated film director Hayao Miyazaki, Madman Entertainment has added The Castle of Cagliostro onto their AnimeLab video-on-demand streaming service. As with virtually all movies on the platform, this is only available to those who have a Premium subscription to the service.
At this point in time, The Castle of Cagliostro appears to be a permanent fixtured to the AnimeLab library, unlike many recent films which have been streamable for only a limited time. The entire 1 hour 39 minute film can be enjoyed with either the original Japanese audio w/ English subtitles or with English voiceovers. This is a pre-Studio Ghibli era production, so if you are new to The Castle of Cagliostro, expect something a little bit different from the usual styles from Miyazaki, although you will find many of his trademark styles to this day throughout the film.

About The Castle of Cagliostro
Master thief Lupin III a.k.a. “The Wolf” and his right-hand gunman Jigen are hot on the trail of a counterfeiter who swindled them out of a big score. When their search leads them to the secluded European country of Cagliostro, they find far more than they bargained for, including a bride-to-be in peril.
With the help of the beautiful Fujiko, the Stoic Swordsman Goemon and the bumbling Interpol inspector Zanigata, Lupin undertakes to penetrate the defenses of the Count’s fortress, rescue the girl, break-up a counterfeiting scheme, and escape with the hidden treasure of the Castle of Cagliostro!
