It’s hard to believe the live-action Cowboy Bebop series is almost here. As a beloved series for many, there’s bound to be mixed feelings of joy and doubt. We all want it to be an amazing adaptation.
Some first look images were released before, but now we have an almost shot for shot recreation of the animated opening complete with the theme “Tank” composed by Yoko Kanno and performed by the Seatbelts.
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.
If you’re one of the few unfortunate folk who haven’t seen the original (you know who you are), check out the original opening.
If that’s not enough, here are a few of the images released before.
Cowboy Bebop premieres on Netflix on November 19.
