Anime production studio Science SARU, which has been involved in Star Wars: Visions among other projects, will produce animation for the series if it gets the green light.

Fans recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of the film Scott Pilgrim directed by Edgar Wright, released in 2010. As part of the celebration, Ubisoft’s Scott Pilgrim was also re-released on modern platforms.

Originally a six-part comic book series, Scott Pilgrim is the story of a slacker in his twenties living in the mysterious country of Toronto, Canada, who must defeat the seven ex-boyfriends. devils of her crush. The film surprisingly managed to condense the whole story into one film, but in many ways it is best suited for a television format, which has the potential to give the characters a bit of room to breathe and develop.

It looks like these are the early days of the project, and it’s unclear if it will eventually be realized. In the meantime, the film is still holding up quite well.
