  • 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 acclaimed 1998 anime 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 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 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 original 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 series at Sunrise. The title of the Japanese version of the film was taken from the 1973 Bob Dylan song "Knockin' on Heaven's Door".
