Netflix has just revealed the opening credits for their upcoming live-action adaptation of the acclaimed anime series Cowboy Bebop. The opening credits were revealed during Netflix’s global fan event TUDUM. The live-action adaptation has put its own spin on the classic anime series opening credits. The live-action opening credits mimic the original anime series opening credits with its jazzy theme “Tank!” by Seatbelts.
The original anime was considered different from the same genre animes, mostly because of its bombastic big band score. Watanabe has earned a reputation for mixing unique styles of soundtracks that rely on jazz and hip hop over the typical orchestral style. Netflix’s live-action adaptation has the same composer from the anime series, Yoko Kanno.
The series stars John Cho as Spike Spiegel, Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black, and Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine in the lead roles. It also features Alex Hassell, Geoff Stults, Tamara Tunie, Mason Alexander Park, Rachel House, Ann Truong and Hoa Xuande.
Netflix’s live-action series will be coming to the streaming giant on November 19, Check out the opening teaser and a new poster:
