Netflix orders Scott Pilgrim anime series, with 2010 movie cast as voice actors, Edgar Wright as executive producer

Scott Pilgrim is back with much of the team behind the 2010 movie attached to the project

Fans of the Bryan Lee O'Malley graphic novel series Scott Pilgrim and the 2010 cult film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World will be excited to hear that Netflix has just ordered a Scott Pilgrim animated series, which will not only feature the voices of the cast of the 2010 film, but will also have much of its creative team (along with O'Malley) attached.

Michael Cera will voice Scott Pilgrim with Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona Flowers. The rest of the returning voice cast includes Satya Bhabha, Kieran Culkin, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick, Brie Larson, Alison Pill, Aubrey Plaza, Brandon Routh, Jason Schwartzman, Johnny Simmons, Mark Webber Stephen Still, Mae Whitman, and Ellen Wong.

Bryan Lee O'Malley will serve as executive producer, writer, and showrunner alongside BenDavid Grabinski (who was behind 2019's Are You Afraid of the Dark?). Edgar Wright, who directed, co-wrote, and produced the 2010 live action movie will be executive producing the anime. Japanese animation studio Science SARU will serve as animation studio with executive producer Euyoung Choi and director Abel Gongora.

In a statement about the project, executive producer Edgar Wright said, “One of the proudest and most enjoyable achievements of my career was assembling and working with the dynamite cast of Scott Pilgrim... Since the film’s release in 2010 we’ve done Q&A’s, remembrances and charity read throughs, but there was never the occasion to reunite the whole gang on an actual project until now. 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.”


Will Disney's cost-cutting plans mean the end of Marvel as a standalone company?
