Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World may be a one and done film, but the original cast is set to come back for an anime adaptation of the original source material. The series is set to premiere in November, and we have a new clip with Scott, Ramona, and more.
Check this out:
The scene essentially has Scott (Michael Cera) asking Julie (Aubrey Plaza) about Ramona (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), and we see him order a package on Netflix (originally Amazon) expecting her to make the delivery. Scott’s roommate Wallace (Kieran Culkin) is also in the scene, and he asks Scott to search for a Lucas Lee (Chris Evans) film on Netflix.
It’s just a short clip, but we can already see some differences with the live-action film; particularly when it comes to the snapiness of the narrative. Though Wright’s style feels like it definitely goes hand-in-hand with Scott Pilgrim, I am interested to see this new direction the anime is going. Even then, a lot of Wright’s influence can still be expected in the series.
I do have to say that Cera’s voice as Scott is kind of different in the clip, but I guess we’ll just have to wait for the final product to see how everything meshes together.
Scott Pilgrim meets the girl of his dreams, Ramona Flowers, but learns he must defeat her seven evil exes in order to date her. Then things get even more complicated. Based on the graphic novels by Bryan Lee O’Malley.
Scott Pilgrim Takes Off premieres on Netflix on Nov. 17.
