The official trailer for Scott Pilgrim Takes Off is here, revealing what is required to be Ramona Flowers’ new lover.
For Scott Pilgrim fans, this is a tale as old as time. In order for the slacker musician to get with the mysterious manic pixie dream girl, he has to first defeat her League of Evil Exes – all seven of them. A battle to be taken quite seriously by Scott, the trailer depicts it as an incredibly epic, fun and colourful adventure. The trailer even played the Mortal Kombat theme song while introducing all seven of Ramona’s evil exes.
Aside from Ramona’s seven evil exes, the trailer reveals Scott’s dreams about Ramona, his grumpy roomate Wallace and a confirmation that the all-star cast of the film Scott Pilgrim vs. The World will be returning to the animated series to reprise their roles.
Returning to Scott Pilgrim is Michael Cera as the titular character, Mary Elisabeth Winstead as Ramona Flowers, Kieran Culkin as Wallace Wells, Anna Kendrick as Stacey Pilgrim, Aubrey Plaza as Julie Powers, Brie Larson as Envy Adams, Alison Pill as Kim Pine, Johnny Simmons as Young Neil and Ellen Wong as Knives Chau.
Reprising their roles as Ramona’s evil exes are Satya Barbha as Matthew Patel, Chris Evans as Lucas Lee, Brandon Routh as Todd Ingram, Mae Whitman as Roxie Richter and Jason Schwartzman as Gideon Graves. No actors have been announced to play twin exes Kyle and Ken Katayanagi as of yet.
The anime and the movie are both based on an independent comic book. It was first launched in 2004 and finished its run shortly before the release of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
Scott Pilgrim Takes Off will be released on 17 November 2023 on Netflix.
