Scott Pilgrim Takes Off Teaser Trailer Shows Off Netflix’s Epic Anime Series Adaptation
Netflix has just unveiled the exciting first teaser for the highly anticipated TV series Scott Pilgrim Takes Off. Based on the beloved comic book series by author Bryan Lee O’Malley that inspired the 2010 live-action movie, this anime adaptation promises to bring the chaotic energy of the original source material to life.
In the teaser, we get a glimpse of the story that awaits us. Our protagonist, Scott Pilgrim, is faced with the challenging task of battling against seven formidable evil ex-lovers to have a shot at a peaceful relationship with the girl of his dreams. Seeing Scott Pilgrim in anime form captures the frantic fights and the structure of the comic books unlike what we have seen before.
The series consists of eight episodes allowing us to delve even deeper into the Scott Pilgrim universe. The trailer hints at the inclusion of more elements from the comic which will make the return of the original cast from the movie an even more exciting pairing as we see them bring life to the characters in new ventures different from the film.
Executive producer Edgar Wright has managed to gather the stars, including Michael Cera, Brandon Routh, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jason Schwartzman, Mae Whitman, Chris Evans, Kieran Culkin, Anna Kendrick, Brie Larson, Aubrey Plaza, and more, to reprise their roles and lend their voices to the animated series.
The 2010 film, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, was already praised for its faithful adaptation of the source material. It successfully brought the comic book visuals to life, and fans can rest assured that Scott Pilgrim Takes Off will maintain the essence that made the story so beloved. Co-showrunners Bryan Lee O’Malley and BenDavid Grabinski, along with executive producer Edgar Wright, are committed to delivering another faithful adaptation in a different medium adding to the fandom of Scott Pilgrim.
The episodes are directed by Abel Góngora, known for their work on Star Wars: Visions. And, to top it all off, Anamanaguchi, who composed the score for Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game, has returned to deliver another kick-ass soundtrack for the series.
Get ready to embark on an epic adventure filled with action, romance, and a whole lot of animated awesomeness when Scott Pilgrim Takes Off premieres exclusively on Netflix on November 17, 2023. Check out the teaser trailer below:
