“Scott Pilgrim Takes Off” Teaser: Original Cast Including Michael Cera & Mary Elizabeth Winstead Return for Anime Series
Scott Pilgrim is back in a form that would no doubt suit the flesh-and-blood character from Edgar Wright’s 2010 hit Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Making the transition from Wright’s live-action film to the new Netflix anime series all the smoother is the fact that the original Scott Pilgrim himself, Michael Cera, voices Scott Pilgrim, and he’s joined by a ton of stars from Wright’s film, including Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Aubrey Plaza, Anna Kendrick, Alison Pill, Kiernan Culkin, Chris Evans, Jason Schwartzman, Brie Larson, Ellen Wong and more. It’s a family affair with the Scott Pilgrim cast, Wright explained.
“Luckily, the Scott Pilgrim cast became a close-knit family, and friendships were forged for life,” Wright said in Netflix’s Tudum last March. “There is still a group email with the entire cast on it that’s been going since 2010. I was happy to be able to reach out to everyone with the news that we had finally come up with a way to continue the adventure. Seeing (and hearing) everyone come back to their roles has been a true pleasure.”
The new series follows the events in Wright’s film, which itself was based on Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novel series. Scott Pilgrim Takes Off runs eight episodes long and comes from the animation studio Science Saru. The new series is written by O’Malley and BenDavid Grabinski, who are also the showrunners.
Check out the teaser below. Scott Pilgrim Takes Off streams on Netflix on November 17.
