Live-Action Cowboy Bebop Producer Confirms Ein as a Welsh Corgi
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Netflix's live-action Cowboy Bebop series has cast all of its main human characters but the Swordfish's brainy pooch Ein is still unknown. Speculation on whether Ein will be Welsh Corgi like the original or some other breed (one rumor even suggested a Husky) caught the attention of the series' executive producer and writer Christopher Yost.
Yost confirmed on Twitter on that Ein was always planned to be a Welsh Corgi.
in the nearly three years i've been working on it, there has not been a single day where ein was anything other than a welsh corgi. #CowboyBebop— christopher yost (@yost) May 5, 2019

Shinichiro Watanabe, the original anime's director, is serving as consultant for the project. Andre Nemec, Josh Appelbaum, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio are credited as showrunners and executive producers.
Tomorrow Studios' Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements; Yasuo Miyakawa, Masayuki Ozaki, and Shin Sasaki of Sunrise (the studio that animated the original series); and Tetsu Fujimura and Matthew Weinberg are also credited as executive producers.
