Scott Pilgrim is back!
Thirteen years after the release of the cult classic Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, the hit graphic novel series is finally getting the animated series treatment. Streaming service Netflix has announced that Scott Pilgrim Takes Off will debut on the platform on November 17 — with the original cast of the film reprising their roles.
According to Netflix:
“Michael Cera returns as the 23-year-old bass player of Sex Bob-Omb, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona, Kieran Culkin as Wallace Wells, Anna Kendrick as Stacey Pilgrim, Brie Larson as Envy Adams, Alison Pill as Kim Pine, Aubrey Plaza as Julie Powers, Johnny Simmons as Young Neil, Mark Webber as Stephen Stills, Ellen Wong as Knives Chau, and Satya Bhabha, Chris Evans, Brandon Routh, Jason Schwartzman, and Mae Whitman as the Evil Exes. The series comes from anime house Science SARU and is written and executive produced by O’Malley and BenDavid Grabinski, with music by Anamanaguchi (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game) and Joseph Trapanese.”
This isn’t the first time Scott Pilgrim has been given the animated treatment. Adult Swim released “Scott Pilgrim vs The Animation” — a series of shorts to coincide with the release of the feature film.
