Everything we need to know about the Netflix adaptation

The streaming platform Netflix has always shown a great interest in anime content that is inside its catalog. But also to adapt them to live action, telling that same story with real characters. Adapt animes it does not usually work out excessively well, partly because it is difficult to move those universes so complex. Death Note, Dragon Ball and Attack the titans, are just some of the most crappy and erroneously posed adaptations of the genre. However, the video on demand service does not stop trying to create a product that be applauded by the fans, and that is something it intends to do by adapting the mythical anime series Cowboy Bebop.

Even with mistrust in focus, the hype It is tall because of all the mythology surrounding the history of these space bounty hunters. The original series was developed between 1998 and 1999, with 26 episodes and a movie from the same studio.

El live action de Cowboy Bebop will premiere in November 19 on Netflix and will consist of 10 episodes launched simultaneously, as is the case with all the platform’s own content.

Is it a new version or will it be true to the original?

André Nemec, the showrunner of the series already declared that his Cowboy Bepop It would be “Expansion of the universe”, rather than a remake that copies the original series shot by shot. The synopsis provided by Netflix reads as follows: “Cowboy Bepop is an action-packed space western about three bounty hunters, also known as “Cowboys” and somehow everyone tries to put a painful past behind him. This team consists of Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir) and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda). The three will try to hunt down the most dangerous criminals in the solar system for the right price, while their previous lives haunt them.

At the moment we don’t even have a trailer, but what the platform has distributed is a large number of promotional images, apart from the reproduction of the classic opening (considered one of the best in anime) with these live action characters.
