COWBOY BEBOP Opening Credits Perfectly Capture The Spirit Of The Anime; New Stills Released
No trailer, unfortunately, but Netflix did debut the awesome opening credits for the upcoming Cowboy Bebop series, which features an updated score from the original anime's composer, Yoko Kanno.
3, 2, 1.. Let's jam!
We thought we might get a look at the first trailer for Netflix's Cowboy Bebop adaptation during today's TUDUM event, but the streamer did share a treat for fans of the original anime in the form of the show's opening credits.
These credits are obviously inspired by the anime's opening sequence, and feature an updated version of Yoka Kano's iconic score. We also get to see Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) in action for the first time, along with a glimpse of the crew's adorable corgi, Ein.
Check out the video below along with some new stills.
"Cowboy Bebop is an action-packed space Western about three bounty hunters, aka cowboys, all trying to outrun the past. As different as they are deadly, Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) form a scrappy, snarky crew ready to hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals — for the right price. But they can only kick and quip their way out of so many scuffles before their pasts finally catch up with them."
Cowboy Bebop will be exec produced and written by Christopher Yost (Thor), who will also serve as showrunner along with Andre Nemec, Josh Appelbaum, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio; Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements of Tomorrow Studios; Yasuo Miyakawa, Masayuki Ozaki, and Shin Sasaki of Sunrise Inc. Watanabe is on board as a consultant.
