Cowboy Bebop Teaser Features Loads Of Live-Action Fighting (VIDEO)
The streaming wars have necessitated the big streaming platforms to diversify the types of films and television series that they produce, with anime fans being one particular audience segment that Netflix has opted to focus on. Netflix has found success with original anime series like Castlevania and Aggretsuko, while their live-adaptations of anime like Death Note have been less than well-received. However, the reveals of their upcoming live-action Cowboy Bebop series show that they are holding true to their anime origins, like the inclusion of original composer Yoko Kanno. Now, the first Cowboy Bebop teaser shows the main bounty hunter heroes in action.
Netflix has released their live-action Cowboy Bebop teaser on their official YouTube channel. The teaser, titled “The Lost Session”, plays with the black border lines that are used in both the anime and live-action’s theme sequence to separate characters. Here, they are used for comical effect as a tangible object for the characters to quickly move the characters to different locations. With that, we see John Cho as Spike Spiegel, Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black and Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine interacting with each other in the pursuit of bounties.
The Cowboy Bebop teaser features the heroic trio engaging in a variety of combat techniques, with hand-to-hand combat, gunplay and Spike even using a bo staff at one point. We also feel the multi-cultural environments that the anime conceptualized, complete with Japanese noodle street vendors, cowboy hats and 1970s pulp fiction-style wardrobes. The visuals also show their inspiration from the anime genre, such as the dramatic close-up shots and the quick dramatic shift to Spike remembering his nemesis Vicious, played here by Alex Hassell. The trailer ends with the trio on-board their ship, The Bebop, as the camera zooms out and reveals the CG ship floating in space. The ten new episodes, or “sessions”, are set to release on November 19th, and so far, the Space Cowboys are looking like they’re ready to jam.
