Netflix’s TUDUM is the streamer’s first global fan event. Held on Saturday, September 25th, the event featured sneak peeks and features of Netflix’s most exciting coming announcements, from TV series to films. Check out some of our favorites below:
Kanye West documentary
Aside from releasing a new record and breaking headlines every couple of weeks, Kanye West is also the subject of a Netflix documentary that’s been 20 years in the making. “Jeen-yuhs” directed by Coodie Simmons and Chike Ozah, has had cameras trailing Kanye for the past 20 years, with the end result being an intimate portrait of Kanye and his growth over the years. Netflix released a first look of the documentary, featuring West and Mos Def performing the song “Two Words,” from Kanye’s seminal album “The College Dropout.”
For us 90’s latinos, there are few things more memorable than Rebelde, the Mexican telenovela that was the launching pad for the band RBD who was also one of the most successful bands in the world. Netflix will be rebooting the series with a totally new cast and what looks like a much more expensive production, the likes of “Elite” and other big budget Netflix programs. The sneak peek presented in TUDUM features the new cast members walking down the halls of Elite Way school singing a new rendition of the infamous Rebelde anthem. We’re scared and excited.
Cowboy Bebop intro
“Cowboy Bebop,” starring John Cho, Daniela Pineda and Mustafa Shakir, has a lot of expectations tied to it. Based on perhaps the most beloved anime of all time, “Cowboy Bepop,” follows three space bounty hunters (known as cowboys in the series’ universe) as they get into trouble and fulfill their bounties. Logically.
Netflix released the intro of the series, which is almost a shot by shot recreation of the original opening.
Army of Thieves
Following the success of “Army of the Dead,” starring the great Ana de la Reguera, “Army of Thieves” is a prequel, filled with less zombies but with more bank heists. The film stars Matthias Schweighöfer, who also directs, and Nathalie Emmanuel, whom you most likely know through “Game of Thrones.” It looks just as fun and breezy as the original and we can’t wait to watch.
The much awaited fourth season of “Stranger Things” is finally here! Well, at least a sneak peek. The season is expected to debut on Netflix at some point in 2022, and it looks seriously spooky. While not a lot is known about this installment of the series, it’s known that officer Hopper is returning, that we’ll be learning more about Eleven’s past and that’s pretty much it. We can’t wait.
