The newly released trailer feels only like a taste of the space adventure Netflix has planned for us. However, the taste is enough to hype us up, leaving us clamoring for more. Now without further delay, let’s check out what the show has in store for us!
‘Cowboy Bebop’ Official Trailer
The trailer opens up with John Cho as Spike Spiegel, standing in front of a futuristic landscape as he talks of his to his old friend Anna. We see glimpses of his past, his new partner Jet, and a shot of a reflection in a puddle which any fan of the original anime will recognize.
The trailer also shows Pierrot Le Fou, Spike’s infamous and clown enemy, and a mere glimpse of Vicious, a major antagonist from the anime. Moreover, we have the main trio Spike Spiegel, Jet Black, and Faye Valentine in various action scenes and funny moments.
Something else to note is the soundtrack being played in the trailer. In the beginning, we hear a soundtrack that feels extremely similar to “Cosmos” which is one of the soundtracks from the old classic. Although for the rest of the trailer we hear the absolute banger that is “Tank!”, which played as the opening of the original anime.
