Trailer for Netflix's Live-Action 'Cowboy Bebop' Series with John Cho
"There's no happy ending here." Netflix has launched the full official trailer for their Cowboy Bebop live-action series, based on the beloved Japanese anime series that originally aired in 1998. A ragtag crew of bounty hunters chases down the galaxy's most dangerous criminals. They'll save the world - for the right price. 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. Along with their trusty pal Ein, a genetically-engineered Pembroke Welsh Corgi with human-like intelligence. But they can only kick and quip their way out of so many scuffles before their pasts finally catch up with them. The series also stars Alex Hassell and Elena Satine, with appearances by Molly Moriarty, Blessing Mokgohloa, Lucy Currey, and Rachel House. This space western series will debut with 10 episodes in the first season. I'm actually impressed by how good this looks! It seems like they went all out trying to make sure this lives up to the original anime. I'm looking forward to watching it.
