While we are still sinking in the fact that we are just a month away from the debut of El Camino: A Breaking Bad movie on Netflix, makers have shared a musical recap of the hit series to amp up fans. It’s a chilling cover of ‘Enchanted’ performed by Grammy nominated Chloe X Halle accompanied by a montage of Jesse’s entire story arch from Breaking Bad.
Their heavenly voices indeed take us a walk down the crystal memory lane as the video revisits many painful and soul crushing moments that Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman had to endure over the show’s five season run. The clip finally concludes with Pinkman escaping captivity in the final episode, which El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will supposedly kick off from. The song also holds a sentimental value for Jesse Pinkman as the original version of ‘Enchanted’ by The Platters was played when he tried heroin for the first time with his then-girlfriend Jane, played by Krysten Ritter.
Earlier, after keeping fans in the dark about the movie since the final episode aired five years ago, makers of El Camino surprised fans by revealing that not only filming on the forthcoming movie has been wrapped up; but they also launched a trailer and gave a release date.
The sequel’s trailer, obviously starring Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman, follows him forging some kind of future after escaping from captivity at a Nazi compound. While the teaser doesn’t show Pinkman as such, it portrays a quick interrogation scene in an interrogation facility, with Skinny Pete’s (Charles Baker) voice reaching our ears. The clip shows the interrogators wanting to know the probable location of Pinkman, but Pete doesn’t know about his whereabouts and even if he did, he would never tell the police. Because Jesse Pinkman cannot be put “back inside a cage”.
While we are sure of Aaron Paul’s return as Jesse Pinkman, the bigger question is if Bryan Cranston will return as Walter White. We mean both him and Aaron did post identical pictures of two mules at the same with the cryptic caption “Soon”.

Just a day prior to the trailer launch, Bob Odenkirk, who plays lawyer Saul Goodman in the series, surprised fans by revealing that filming of the much anticipated Breaking Bad movie has already been finished. While no other such details about the film are disclosed yet, one thing’s for sure that the director’s chair isn’t changing- Vince Gilligan is putting the movie together. Odenkirk, who was promoting the upcoming fifth season of ‘Better Call Saul‘, a spin-off from Breaking Bad said, “I don’t know what people know and don’t know. I find it hard to believe you don’t know it was shot. They did it. You know what I mean? How is that a secret? But it is. They’ve done an amazing job of keeping it a secret”.
While fans were expecting a 2020 release, the makers delighted fans once again as ‘El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie’ will release on October 11 this year on Netflix worldwide.
