I can’t believe this is finally happening. For years we’ve heard rumors of a Cowboy Bebop live action anything happening only for the rumors to eventually fade away. But now in the face of delays, injuries, and pandemics we finally see our cast of the upcoming Netflix show Cowboy Bebop in full costume. I couldn’t be happier with how this looks.
So, here’s John Cho as Spike Spiegel, Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine, and Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black. Spike looks like he stepped off an animation cell as well doe Jet. I see they have made some changes to Faye’s look and considering Faye’s anime look I can understand that that may not be practical for action sequences in reel life. Shakir’s cybernetic arm looks like it’ll be more practical than special effect and I dig it. And if there wasn’t going to be an Ein there was no way I was going to watch this. Thanks for delivering Netflix. And the shots that we see from the interior of The Bebop, the ship our bounty hunters travel on, look very faithfully recreated as well.
I’m very excited to finally see this so November 18th can’t get here soon enough. Set your Netflix reminders guys and Let’s Jam!
