If you are anxiously waiting the release of Blade Runner 2049, then you are not alone. It is easily one of the most-anticipated films of the year. Will the sequel stand up to the arguably greatest cult film of all-time? Before all of those answers come, you can fill in the blanks as to what happened between the events of the first film and the sequel. You can check out the trailer for the official prequel anime for Blade Runner 2049:

 

Helmed by iconic anime director Shinichirō Watanabe, Blade Runner: Black Out 2022 is his dream-come-true. Watanabe is responsible for classic anime like Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, but his latest endeavor fills in the gaps between Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049. This is the third prequel for the film, and the final one. It covers the events that lead to the prohibition of Replicant production. This law is the sole motivation factor 2049s new villain Niander Wallace (Jared Leto).

The 15-minute film is great, and one you shouldn’t pass it up. You can check out the third clip in low resolution for free at Crunchyroll, or you can sign up for the service to get the high resolution version.
