‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ Is Leaving Netflix in September 2021

A new month means new shows joining and departing Netflix. Among those departing in September 2021 is Edgar Wright’s 2010 cult classic: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ is leaving Netflix on Sept. 15

Fans will have until Sept. 15 to stream Scott Pilgrim vs. the World a few more times.

The movie was added on Sept. 16, 2018, and garnered consistent views over its three years on the streaming service. 

The cult classic has gotten a lot of love over the past year. 2020 marked the 10-year anniversary of the film. For a film considered a financial flop upon its initial release, there was plenty of fanfare. 

 Nearly the entire cast reunited for a special table read video call. Even actors who have since exploded in popularity appeared, including Arrested Development’s Michael Cera, Live Free or Die Hard’s Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Pitch Perfect’s Anna Kendrick, and Marvel’s Chris Evans.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World also saw the first physical release of Nigel Godrich’s score in 2020. Brie Larson’s “Black Sheep” put the Captain Marvel star back on Billboard charts for the first time since 2005 — with a decade-old song, Billboard reported.

Clearly, the “power of love” still burns for the film.

Scott Pilgrim’s second life in streaming and re-releases

When dozens of films are added and removed from Netflix each month, it takes a special title for articles to choose as a headline. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World may not have succeeded in theaters, but it got a second chance on Netflix and in May 2021.

In May, it returned to the big screen for one week in AMC Theaters exclusively in Dolby Vision.

A 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray steelbook was released for home collections. Even the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game saw a re-released earlier in 2021 through Limited Run Games.

And the celebrations still have not ended. The specialty items for the game’s re-release will ship in late 2021, celebrating both the Wright movie and the original graphic novels by Bryan Lee O’Malley.

But if we can expect to see the film leave Netflix soon, will it be available anywhere else?

Where to next for Scott Pilgrim?

Unfortunately, there is no word on where Scott Pilgrim vs. the World will go next.

With so much support from fans and long-overdue celebrations of the film ongoing, fans can bet that the cult classic will not stay off streaming services for too long.

For now, the film remains available through Amazon Prime to rent for 30 days or purchase.

It is clear that fans want more from Scott Pilgrim.
