|TIFF proudly presents a special screening of the first three episodes of the highly anticipated Netflix series Scott Pilgrim Takes Off. Writers, co-showrunners, and executive producers Bryan Lee O’Malley and BenDavid Grabinski join TIFF for an onstage conversation about their animated adaptation of O’Malley’s iconic Toronto-set graphic novel series. Scott, Ramona Flowers, all seven of her evil exes, and the rest of the original cast from Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World reunite for a familiar but brand new adventure in Scott Pilgrim Takes Off, premiering on November 17 on the platform. |
This special screening is part of TIFF’s Primetime programming and will take place on Wednesday, November 15 at 7 p.m.
Additionally, TIFF patrons have the opportunity to relive some of the magic from the original film, as Ramona Flower’s original costume from the live-action Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), worn by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, is currently on loan from NBCUniversal Archives and on display for a limited time in the newly renovated third floor of the TIFF Bell Lightbox.
