Netflix Releases Official Teaser Trailer For ‘Scott Pilgrim Takes Off’

Announced last year in January as only being in development, Netflix has just revealed the official teaser trailer for the latest anime series Scott Pilgrim Takes Off. The series will be premiering on the streaming platform on November 17th.

As shown in the trailer, all the main cast members from the 2010 live action movie have returned to reprise their roles as their animated counterparts. This includes Michael Cera as Pilgrim, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Flowers, Kieran Culkin, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick, Brandon Routh, Jason Schwartzman and Brie Larson.

Scott Pilgrim centers on the main character as a slacker living in Toronto and in a garage band called Sex Bob-Omb with his friends. His life is turned upside down when he meets Ramona Flowers, an American girl who is recently single. But before their love can blossom, Pilgrim finds himself challenged by his love’s seven previous relationships, and must defeat them in over-the-top fashion.

The anime series is written by the creator of the 6-volume graphic novel series Bryan Lee O’Malley and BenDavid Grabinski. The two are also producers as well as Edgar Wright. IMDB lists 9 total producers. The eight-part series is directed by Abel Góngora, with animation by Science SARU. The music is by Joseph Trapanese and Anamanaguchi. Anamanaguchi also did music for the 2010 movie.

According to Bryan O’Malley, the leaked news of the anime series came out before they had even started working on it. They originally were not planning to make an official announcement until March 30th of that year.

When it was officially announced, O’Malley said of working with the 2010 cast members and bringing them back to the anime series, “They’ve all gone on to do incredible things, but to me, they’re family. There — to this day — is still a group email with the entire cast on it, that’s been going since 2010. I was happy to be able to reach out to everyone with the news that we had finally come up with a way to continue the adventure. Seeing (and hearing) everyone come back to their roles has been a true pleasure.”

Wright added, “I knew that a live-action sequel was unlikely, but I would usually defer by suggesting that perhaps an anime adaptation was an interesting way to go. And then, lo and behold, one day Netflix got in touch to ask about this exact idea. But even better, our brilliant creator Bryan Lee O’Malley had an idea that was way more adventurous than just a straight adaptation of the original books.”
