Netflix has announced an anime adaptation of Scott Pilgrim starring the full cast from Edgar Wright’s 2010 live-action movie, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. This includes the return of Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona Flowers, Chris Evans and Lucas Lee and many others. The casting announcement trailer was recently uploaded to YouTube confirming the news after months of rumours and speculation.
The anime adaptation will see Cera voice Scott Pilgrim but the full cast will also be returning. Evans will play one of the evil exes, Lucas Lee, while Winstead will reprise her role as Ramona Flowers. Brie Larson will play Envy Adams again alongside Mark Webber as Stephen Stills, Alison Pill as Kim Pine, Johnny Simmons as Young Neil, Anna Kendrick as Stacey Pilgrim, Ellen Wong as Knives Chau, Aubrey Plaza as Julie Powers and Kieran Culkin as Wallace Wells.

Apart from Evans as Lee, other returning exes include Satya Bhabha as Matthew Patel, Brandon Routh as Todd Ingram, Mae Whitman as Roxy Richter and Jason Schwartzman as Gideon Graves. This might be the most star-studded voice cast for any anime we’ve ever seen. Wright was largely responsible for bringing all of them together again on the anime project but we don’t think there was much pushback since the movie is considered a classic in the eyes of many filmgoers.
Edgar Wright, who wrote and directed the 2010 movie, commented on the exciting news:
“Original creator Bryan Lee O’Malley, along with writer BenDavid Grabinski have conjured up an anime series of Scott Pilgrim that doesn’t just expand the universe, but also…well, just watch it. I’m more than happy to announce that I have helped coax the entire original cast back to voice their characters on this epic new adventure. You are in for a treat.”
Unfortunately no release date was announced but the trailer says that the anime is coming “soon”. Check out the announcement trailer below:
