Do you remember director Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs The World is? Well, it’s been ten years since the film based on Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novel series Scott Pilgrim release. The action-romance-comedy starred Michael Cera, Chris Evans, Brandon Routh, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jason Schwartzman, Brie Larson, Mae Whitman, Anna Kendrick, Kieran Culkin, Aubrey Plaza, Ellen Wong and Alison Pill.
Hardly a week before its 10th anniversary, pretty much all members of the cast showed up for this virtual reunion. This reunion hosted by EW was in aid of charity. Joining the cast was director Edgar Wright and co-writer Michael Bacall. The creator of the original graphic novel, Bryan Lee O’Malley, too joined the proceedings. A few of the original cast who couldn’t make it were Brie Larson and Kieran Culkin.
After a brief roll call, the actors dived into the script that is centred on Scott, a bassist for an indie rock band on a mission to end up with the girl of his dreams by defeating her exes. The reunion doubled as a fundraiser for Water for People, a nonprofit that provides communities with sanitation solutions and clean water.
In a statement, the team said: “Thank you, ‘Scott Pilgrim’ fans! Without you, there would be no ten-year anniversary celebration. And then we wouldn’t be able to bring you Scott Pilgrim VS The World Water Crisis, brought to you not-at-all-live from the comfort of our homes during a global pandemic quarantine shut-down. This is definitely how we imagined marking this birthday. We know it’s been a challenging time. But it’s also a time when the generosity of individuals and communities has been stunning. I hope you’ll give what you can to a wonderful group helping save lives, build businesses, and creating lasting change all over the world.”
