'Scott Pilgrim' original cast returning for Netflix anime series

The cast of the 2010 film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World will be returning to voice the characters behind the forthcoming Netflix anime adaptation of the same name.

Reprising their original roles, Michael Cera will be back to voice the title character, Mary Elizabeth Winstead will be back as Romona Flowers, and the Succession star Kieran Culkin will also be returning to play Scott’s flatmate, Wallace. Also returning are the likes of Satya Bhabha, Anna Kendrick, Brie Larson, Chris Evans, Jason Schwartzman and the White Lotus actor Aubrey Plaza.

Originally released as a graphic novel by Bryan Lee O’Malley in 2004, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World was adapted into a film in 2010 by the British filmmaker Edgar Wright. A bombastic comic book movie, the story follows a young man who must defeat his new girlfriend’s seven evil exes in battle in order to win her over.

In a statement, Wright fondly recalled his time working on the film, “One of the proudest and most enjoyable achievements of my career was assembling and working with the dynamite cast of Scott Pilgrim”. 

Continuing, he explained: “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”.
