Scott Pilgrim Vs. Adult Swim

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

If you're like me, the very mention of Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim makes you go "....mmmmehhhhhhh."

Maybe a combination of the original artwork talking with Cera's voice will help!

Apparently Universal films approached Cartoon Network / Adult Swim about promoting the live action movie (set to be released this Friday), and Adult Swim's idea was to animate some scenes from the series that were cut from the film. Edgar Wright and Bryan Lee O’Malley got on board with this idea, so the flashback scene in Volume Two where Scott meets Kim has been turned in to a four minute animated short, featuring the voices of the movie actors.

"Scott Pilgrim vs the Animation" airs Thursday, August 12th between 12 and 12:30 am on Adult Swim. It will also be available on Friday in full on Adult Swim's website, and on the Scott Pilgrim Facebook page.

SlashFilm had the "exclusive first look" (though I think it technically premiered at Comic Con.) Hit that link to see more footage, if you're in to that kind of thing.

Okay... it's sort of cute. I still think Cera is wrong for this but I do love O'Malley's art.

Seeing Bryan Lee O'Mally's art animated is really adorable.
