Edgar Wright’s 2010 cult masterpiece Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is being brought back to life this fall on Netflix as an animated series with the entire original cast.

What makes this revival noteworthy is the part Cera’s original email conversation played.
Take a look back at a time when the artist cleverly reactivated a dormant email thread with a witty meme before Scott Pilgrim Takes Off premieres on Netflix on November 17.

However, Evans’s bewildered response acted as the catalyst for sparking the conversation. Bryan Lee O’Malley, the creator of the franchise, confirmed the coincidence in a conversation with Entertainment Weekly,

“He just said, Oh, that’s funny. Chris Evans responded like, Michael, what the f**k are you doing responding to this email from nine years ago?’ And then we all started chatting again.”

Was it nostalgia that led Cera to revisit his Scott Pilgrim days, or was he genuinely sifting through his nine-year-old emails?

Regardless, Cera’s initiative successfully rekindled the connection among the star-studded cast. Now, they are fully reunited for Netflix’s Scott Pilgrim Takes Off, a series co-created by O’Malley and BenDavid Grabinski.

The original film boasted a stellar ensemble, including Cera, Evans, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin, Anna Kendrick, Brie Larson, Alison Pill, Aubrey Plaza, Brandon Routh, and Jason Schwartzman.

All of them are back to lend their voices to the animated adaptation, a testament to the enduring bond forged through the years.

However, amid the excitement, it’s worth noting that Cera recently shared his struggle with depression following the completion of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, adding a moving layer to this remarkable tale.

In a candid revelation, actor Cera has openly discussed his battle with post-Scott Pilgrim vs. The World depression, shedding light on the challenges that often accompany the end of a significant project.

Thirteen years after the film’s theatrical release, Cera’s enthusiasm for his role in Edgar Wright’s iconic movie remains unwavering. In a recent interview with GQ, he nostalgically revisited his memorable roles, including his time working alongside an all-star cast in the adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novel series. He said, 

“We all got to rehearse together and spend a lot of time together before we even started making the movie.”

Reflecting on the experience, Cera expressed the camaraderie that permeated the set, attributing it to Edgar Wright’s infectious energy.

However, once the production concluded, Cera found himself grappling with a sense of loss, describing it as “a little depressed” as feeling like everything had suddenly vanished.
