Netflix dropped an official teaser of its upcoming Cowboy Bebop live-action series on October 19 (Tuesday).
The clip features Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) as a trio of inter-galactic bounty hunters as they fight thugs, take a noodle break all the while catching the person with a bounty to their name.
The teaser does not feature many sequences from the show, but does give an overview of the trio's dynamic as they argue and banter with each other. Cho, though at 49 years old is not quite the young looking original Spike, manages to emulate the same body language as the original anime character.
The full trailer for Cowboy Bebop will release in a week, according to the official Twitter account.
Netflix had also recently acquired the streaming rights to all 26 episodes of the original anime series, directed by Shinichirō Watanabe and written by Keiko Nobumoto. The series will be available to watch from October 22.
Meanwhile, the live-action version premieres on Netflix on November 19. Also part of the cast are Alex Hassell, Elena Satine, Tamara Tunie, Mason Alexander Park, Jay Uddin, Lydia Peckham, Adrienne Barbeau, Rodney Cook, and Josh Randall.
It was previously reported that the Japanese voice-cast of the anime will return to dub the live-action show. Koichi Yamadera is Spike, Taiten Kusunoki is Jet, Megumi Hayashibara is Faye, Norio Wakamoto is Vicious, Gara Takashima is Julia, Tsutomu Taruki and Miki Nagasawa are Punch and Judy, Takaya Hashi is the Teddy Bomber, Kenyu Horiuchi is Gren, Masako Isobe is Mao, and Romi Park and Hikaru Midorikawa are Shin and Lin.
