    I'm excited, but apprehensive on the adaptation. I'll probably try to watch some before reviews come in so I can form my own opinion of the live action version. Now I think about it, I hope the material is handled well because it has a lot of potential.

    Hearing that Yoko Kanno will be involved in the music, so that's a plus.

    Composer Yoko Kanno and her band The Seatbelts, voice actors, and musicians related to the animation and games industries have teamed up to recreate Cowboy Bebop's iconic ending theme "The Real Folk Blues" for charity. The track released on Bandcamp and YouTube on Friday with a pay-what-you-want donation scheme. All proceeds will be donated to the CDC Foundation to support measures against the spread of the new coronavirus COVID-19.

    Writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach has confirmed in an interview that Ein will be a corgi, just as in the original anime. The show's style and substance will be loyal, saying "If you're doing Cowboy Bebop, you're doing Cowboy Bebop."

    The writer also revealed a few changes, such as the show toning down Faye's costume for Netflix. Although the characters will still smoke, the show will not glamorize it as much.

    He has written for two of the show's villains so far, including “one of the standouts” from the anime. The show will tell the broader story of the series' characters. He does not think any episodes will launch until the full first season is ready because the season is meant to be watched together. He claimed that there are no plans to end the show after a set number of episodes.

    Smoking and a corgi. This might be turn out alright. They should keep it episodic with the main Spike/Vicious arc being slowly fed to us over course of series.

    That said...man I would give my left nut for RZA or Pete Rock to do soundtrack.

    New Zealand's Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment is allowing certain overseas productions to enter the country for filming in the next six months. Netflix's live-action Cowboy Bebop series has been given the greenlight. The Cowboy Bebop production can bring 19 crew members plus nine family members.
