  • Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, known in Japan as Cowboy Bebop: Knockin' on Heaven's Door, is a 2001 Japanese animated Space Western film directed by Shinichirō Watanabe, with the screenplay written by Keiko Nobumoto, and the music scored by Yoko Kanno. Based on the 1998 anime television series Cowboy Bebop created by Hajime Yatate, the film serves as a midquel and takes place between episodes twenty-two and twenty-three of the television series. The plot centers on bounty hunter Spike Spiegel and his crewmates aboard the spaceship Bebop in their efforts to find a criminal terrorist who is planning to release an unknown pathogen on Mars. Most of the original staff members of the Cowboy Bebop television series returned to work on the film, while the central voice cast also reprised their roles. The film was animated by studios Sunrise, which had previously developed the television series, and Bones, which was founded by producer Masahiko Minami, character designer Toshihiro Kawamoto, and animation director Hiroshi Osaka, all of whom had worked on the television series at Sunrise.
