The movie directed by Edgar Wright included Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim alongside many stars known for their roles in various franchises that were later released. This includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Anna Kendrick, Chris Evans, Brandon Routh, and Brie Larson.
Scott Pilgrim Takes Off Release Date Revealed with Huge Teaser
Scott Pilgrim Takes Off is the revealed title for the new anime series coming to Netflix this November. The new series features the story from the original Manga and the amazing cast of Scott Pilgrim VS The World live-action adaptation returning as voice actors. The upcoming anime was created by Science SARU (DEVILMAN crybaby, Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!, The Heike Story, Inu-Oh) and also features original songs by Anamanaguchi (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game), who will also score episodes with Joseph Trapeanese (Straight Outta Compton).
Fans are delighted to discover that all characters will be played by the amazing cast from the movie including Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona Flowers. They will also be joined by Alison Pill, Mark Webber, Kieran Culkin, Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, Johnny Simmons, and Ellen Wong. Plus, the Evil Exes Cast members are comprised of Satya Bhabha, Chris Evans, Brie Larson, Brandon Routh, Mae Whitman, and Jason Schwartzman.
The trailer features so many iconic scenes that fans will remember from the live-action movie, but it is insane to see this amazing cast return for their unforgettable take on these characters. Hearing Alison Pill shouting out the amazing line for the band as Kim Pine was so nostalgic and gives fans the first demonstration of how irreplaceable this cast is. Fans are going to want to know how much this anime differs from the movie or sticks to the manga since many changes were made during the live-action adaptation.
This includes changes to many battles featured in the Manga, which appear to be reborn in this anime adaptation. One of the biggest changes was the battle against the Katayanagi twins, which was changed from a robot battle to a band battle. As Shota Saito and Keita Saito didn’t speak English, it makes sense that the movie cast members are not included in this lineup. They also didn’t speak for the live-action movie so it will be interesting to find out who takes on these roles when they finally debut as the 5th & 6th Exes for Scott to fight.
Scott Pilgrim Takes Off will be released on November 17, 2023, via Netflix. The anime adaptation will consist of 8 episodes and will feature the all-star cast from the live-action movie.
