Scott Pilgrim movie cast to reunite for Netflix anime series

We first heard some rumblings about a Scott Pilgrim Netlix anime series back in January, with series creator Bryan Lee O’Malley set to write and executive produce. Well today we learned a little more – namely the fact that the entire cast from the 2010 live-action movie will be returning to lend their voices to the series!

On Twitter, executive produced (and director of the 2010 film) Edgar Wright said: “After much musing over the years about there being potential for an anime adaptation of ‘Scott Pilgrim’, I’m thrilled to say one is IMMINENT, with the whole cast back together and… you are going to lose your minds.”

“One of the proudest, most enjoyable achievements of my career was assembling the dynamite cast of Scott Pilgrim. Since the film’s release in 2010 we’ve done Q&As and charity read throughs, but there was never the occasion to reunite the gang on an actual project. Until now…”

No release date has been confirmed yet for the show, which will be animated by Science Saru (Devilman Crybaby, Night is Short, Walk On Girl, Ping-Pong The Animation), but things are clearly starting to move so expect more updates sooner rather than later.
