Scott Pilgrim Takes Off boasts much of the returning cast from the live-action movie Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

Amid a slew of cameos — including Weird Al Yankovic — national treasure Will Forte pops up to play a character who is complicated, deeply chaotic, and a major spoiler. So, consider that your warning.
