Scott Pilgrim vs. the Animation

Slashfilm has heard about a little something called Scott Pilgrim. I don't know if this is going to be a big thing or not, but Adult Swim seems to think highly enough of it to create a cartoon called Scott Pilgrim vs. the Animation, debuting August 12 in two parts between 12 and 12:30 AM, inside commercial breaks on [adult swim]. Producer John DeMarco is thrilled.

"We were approached by Universal to do something cool around the release of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. Being huge fans of the comic, and very excited about the film, we asked if we could produce an animated short in the style of the comic. The filmmakers and Bryan Lee O’Malley were into the idea, so we actually made it! Edgar Wright was kind enough to secure some of the talent from the film for us, so we have Michael Cera as Scott, Allison Pill as Kim, Mae Whitman as Lisa and Jason Schwartzman as Simon Lee doing voices in the short."

The Titmouse, Inc., animated shorts chronicle a piece of the Bryan Lee O'Malley's graphic novels that Edgar Wright couldn't manage to work into the film. Everyone involved (including Universal) got on board with the idea of the four-minute shorts which illustrate the beginning of the friendship between Scott Pilgrim and Kim Pine. More specifically, the shorts reference a flashback in the second volume of the work where Scott meets Lisa Miller and Pine. This will be a different recollection of the scene than what's in the most recent volume six and is based on the art of O' Malley.
