Scott Pilgrim fans get ready to lose your minds, because Edgar Wright just made an announcement via Twitter that is a dream come true.

According to Wright, we haven't seen the last of Scott Pilgrim — he and the whole gang from the film adaptation are returning in animated form.

“This is not a drill! This is happening!” wrote the director, who posted an animated video of the cast confirming who would be returning. “After much musing over the years about there being potential for an anime adaptation of Scott Pilgrim, I’m thrilled to say one is IMMINENT, with the whole cast back together and… you are going to lose your minds.”

“One of the proudest, most enjoyable achievements of my career was assembling the dynamite cast of Scott Pilgrim. Since the film’s release in 2010, we’ve done Q&As and charity read-throughs, but there was never the occasion to reunite the gang on an actual project. Until now...,” he continued. “Original creator Bryan Lee O’Malley, along with writer BenDavid Grabinski have conjured up an anime series of Scott Pilgrim with the geniuses at [Science Saru] that doesn’t just expand the universe, but also…well, just watch it.”

Wright dished that the all-new anime series is coming soon to Netflix and would feature Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Satya Bhabha, Kieran Culkin,Chris Evans,Anna Kendrick,Brie Larson, Alison Pill, Aubrey Plaza,Brandon Routh, Jason Schwartzman, Johnny Simmons,Mark Webber,Mae Whitman, and Elle Wong.

He also teased that bitpop musician Anamanaguchi may be scoring the film.

For fans of the film who always felt like it deserved more, today is your day to shine!
