Thirteen years after the release of the live-action film Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Netflix has greenlit a new anime series based on Bryan Lee O’Malley’s popular graphic novel series.

The original cast is set to reprise their roles, bringing together Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona Flowers, and other familiar faces.

Reuniting the Scott Pilgrim Family

Edgar Wright, the director of the original film, expressed his excitement in bringing the cast back together for the new series.

Despite the live-action film’s initial box office failure, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World has since gained cult status.

In 2020, Wright hinted at plans to revisit the material through animation, which has now become a reality.

Experienced Team at the Helm

O’Malley and BenDavid Grabinski will serve as executive producers and co-showrunners for the anime series.

The animation will be provided by Science SARU, the studio responsible for other Netflix anime series like Devilman Crybaby and Japan Sinks: 2020.

Abel Gongora from Science SARU will direct the series, while Anamanaguchi, the composers of the 2010 Scott Pilgrim vs. the World video game soundtrack, will provide original songs.

The original music by Anamanaguchi and Joseph Trapanese will also play a significant role in bringing the series to life.

A New Adventure Awaits

The upcoming Scott Pilgrim anime series promises to expand the universe and offer a fresh perspective on the original story.

While an official title and release date have not been announced, fans are eagerly awaiting its arrival on Netflix.

Original Cast Returns

The anime series will feature a star-studded voice cast, including Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin, Anna Kendrick, Brie Larson, Alison Pill, Aubrey Plaza, Johnny Simmons, Mark Webber, Ellen Wong, and others.

The evil exes will also be back, voiced by Satya Bhabha, Chris Evans, Brandon Routh, Jason Schwartzman, and Mae Whitman.

Cult Classic Reimagined

Despite its initial box office disappointment, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World has developed a loyal fanbase over the years.

This new animated adaptation aims to satisfy existing fans while also introducing the unique world of Scott Pilgrim to a new audience.

The original creator, Bryan Lee O’Malley, is closely involved with the project as a showrunner, writer, and executive producer, ensuring that the anime series stays true to the spirit of the source material.

Collaborative Effort

With a combination of O’Malley’s vision, Grabinski’s writing, Wright’s involvement, and Science SARU’s animation expertise, the Scott Pilgrim anime series is poised to be a standout addition to Netflix’s growing library of animated content.

The original music by Anamanaguchi and Joseph Trapanese will also play a significant role in bringing the series to life.

As anticipation builds for the release of the Scott Pilgrim anime series, fans will be closely following updates on the project, hoping that it will soon provide another opportunity to immerse themselves in the quirky, action-packed world of Scott Pilgrim and his battle against Ramona Flowers’ seven evil exes.
