It’s happening. And, it’s happening in spectacular fashion. Netflix has announced that the anime adaptation of Scott Pilgrim will reunite the actors from the cast of the 2010 cult classic big-screen adaptation, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. In addition to both leading actors, Michael Cera (Scott Pilgrim) and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Ramona Flowers), a whole set list of other cast members will return to voice their characters.

Since the film’s release in 2010, many of the cast members have gone on to have huge acting careers. Captain America, anyone? Having this incredibly talented cast back together is an exciting achievement.

Adams), Alison Pill (Kim Pine), Aubrey Plaza (Julie Powers), Johnny Simmons (Young Neil), Mark Webber (Stephen Stills) and Ellen Wong (Knives Chau). They also include many of Ramona’s exes: Satya Bhabha as (#1, Matthew Patel), Chris Evans (#2, Lucas Lee), Brandon Routh (#3, Todd Ingram), Mae Whitman (#4, Roxie) and Jason Schwartzman (#7, Gideon Graves).

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Originally, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World was a six-volume comic series by Brian Lee O’Malley. Published by Oni Press, Scott Pilgrim followed the eponymous character as he fought Ramona’s seven evil exes. In addition, Scott must “Get It Together” himself and become a better partner and friend. Heavily inspired by video games, manga, alternative music and Toronto, the comic was an instant classic in its own right. It was so popular, in fact, that the live-action adaptation was underway before the series had even finished. Director, co-writer, and producer Edgar Wright‘s movie was released just one month after the final volume comic.

Wright will return to executive produce the anime adaptation. O’Malley and BenDavid Grabinski will be producers, writers, and showrunners. Eunyoung Choi will also executive produce, Abel Gongora will direct, and the series will be animated by Science SARU studio.

Many questions still remain. These include whether the Sex Bob-omb songs by Beck or the song “Black Sheep” by Metric will feature in the anime. In the movie, these songs were actually performed by the cast. Furthermore, the anime’s release date and season length have yet to be announced. However, when a show has a lineup this exciting, getting to the venue a little early is just the cost of doing business.
