What is Lupin about?
Lupin is based on a character named Arsène Lupin, who’s a clever thief and can change his appearance. The character was created a long time ago, in the early 1900s, by a writer named Maurice Leblanc. The TV show tells the story of a thief named Assane Diop. He’s the only child of an immigrant who moved from Senegal to France for a better life.
However, fate takes a cruel turn in France when Assane’s father is unjustly accused of stealing a valuable diamond necklace. The one behind this false accusation is none other than his wealthy and influential employer, Hubert Pellegrini. Tragically, this unfounded accusation leads to Assane’s father taking his own life while incarcerated, leaving Assane orphaned and consumed by grief.
But here’s the twist: Assane’s dad gave him a special gift before all this happened. It was a book about Arsène Lupin, the famous thief. Little did Assane know that this book would change his life. Assane learns everything he can about being a thief for the next twenty-five years and gets good at it. He uses the book as a guide to become a skilled thief.
After all those years of preparation, Assane is ready to seek revenge against the Pellegrini family. His main goal is to reveal all the bad things that Hubert Pellegrini has done and get back at him for what he did to Assane’s dad.
Lupin Part 3 Trailer
Netflix showed a sneak peek of Lupin Part 3 on September 24, 2022, at their TUDUM event. In this preview, Assane talks about how he got revenge for his dad and wanted to hide to protect his family, but he had to return to the open. Now, he thinks it’s time for him to vanish again.
Interestingly, it appears that Assane has indeed vanished from the public eye. Despite making headlines and being the talk of the town, he seems to have successfully eluded capture. But the challenge lies in that his face is plastered all over town. Moreover, the authorities are actively searching for him as a wanted man. This makes the task of disappearing again considerably more challenging for Assane.
