New video shows Netflix’s iconic ship Cowboy Bebop. The live-action adaptation of the well-known classic anime was recently released to the streaming service, and the reception has been largely polarizing. Critics’ and audience’s score for Cowboy Bebop is mixed, with anime fans in particular not knowing what they think about the new reboot. The Netflix version of the series is forever meant to be compared to its timeless predecessor, since the 1998 Cowboy Bebop was iconic in establishing the now widespread population of anime among American audiences.
Cowboy Bebop follows a group of hapless bounty hunters: Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda). The trio are the crew of Jet’s ship, the Bebop.

Along the way, the crew must face Spike’s past through surprise entries Vicious (Alex Hassell) and Julia (Elena Satine). Spike’s past interferes with the crew’s bounties, and they embark on a wild adventure in the Bebop.
Now, a new video reveals a glimpse into the making of the Bebop itself. Netflix shared the behind-the-scenes look, which is sure to please fans of the series. Star Shakir takes Cowboy Be-bop fans around the titular ship, sharing some interesting tidbits about one of the anime’s most iconic ships and the reasoning behind the show’s set design, including that of Jet “babies,” his bonsai.
