The Series Will Be Adapted by Bryan Lee O’Malley

Scott Pilgrim, the slacker bass player from Bryan Lee O’Malley’s beloved comic series that was later adapted into Edgar Wright’s cult classic live-action movie in 2010, is set to get its own anime series on Netflix. It’s been confirmed that original series creator O’Malley and BenDavid Grabinski will write and executive produce the anime.

The animated series will be directed by Abel Gongora and animated by Science SARU. They’ve already handled projects like Devilman Crybaby and Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken.

This anime version will also feature a number of the characters from the original film. They include Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Scott and Ramona, respectively.

They’ll be joined by the other main characters from the graphic novels, including Envy and Gideon. They’ll be voiced by the original cast of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and a few others, including Kieran Culkin and Chris Evans and Brie Larson. In addition, chiptune band Anamanaguchi, who composed retro game-style music for the video game, will provide original songs.

As previously reported, the project will feature a cast we all know and love, including Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as the titular characters and all of the voice actors from the 2010 cult classic big-screen adaptation.

Anime studio Science SARU (Devilman Crybaby and Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken) is handling the animation work. Moreover, the film’s original composers, Anamanaguchi, will return to provide original music for the series, as well.

While it doesn’t yet have a series order, it is set to launch this year on Netflix and UCP (the division of Universal Studios Group behind The Umbrella Academy and Chucky). O’Malley is attached as executive producer, along with BenDavid Grabinski of Are You Afraid of the Dark? and Edgar Wright, director of the 2010 film.
