If there's one thing lockdown has been good for, it's the discovery of virtual reunions. Following on from the likes of Back to the Future, cult classic Scott Pilgrim vs the World has now had its very own virtual remake.

To celebrate the movie's 10th anniversary – and to raise money for the charity Water for People – Scott Pilgrim writer and director Edgar Wright rallied round (most of) the cast and even the original graphic novel's creator to relive the heady, zany days of 2010.

Almost as joyful as the original movie, Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Anna Kendrick, Alison Pill, Aubrey Plaza, Mae Whitman, and Jason Schwartzman all teamed up for a virtual table-read of the script, as Sex Bob-omb delivered their final encore.

Marvel's very own Chris Evans joined the fun for the Entertainment Weekly video too, as did Ellen Wong, Satya Bhabha, Brandon Routh, Mark Webber, Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O'Malley, and co-writer Michael Bacall.

Although Scott Pilgrim has already seen off the League of Evil Exes once, Mary Elizabeth Winstead recently admitted that a follow-up movie would "be so cool".

Talking about the potential for a Scott Pilgrim sequel earlier this year, Winstead said that she was "curious" to find out how the characters are getting on in their "mid-30s, as opposed to the sort of 20 slacker thing".

She added: "I think it would be really interesting. We always talked about a sequel when we were doing it, but we always imagined it would be like, still like a year later."

Offering further hope to fans, director Edgar Wright also hinted at "plans" for a sequel of-sorts.

Suggesting that a full-length feature might not work, he teased: "There's some plans – and there's nothing official yet – but there are some plans to revisit the material in an animation way."
