New ‘Scott Pilgrim Takes Off’ and ‘Ahsoka’ Interviews

Now that the SAG-AFTRA strikes are finally over, celebrities can go back to doing interviews to talk about their shows and films. First up, Mary spoke with Collider in a brand new interview about Ahsoka and how she hopes she’ll get a chance to return to the character of Hera:

“She’s such an amazing character. “There’s such a wealth of experiences that we could bring to her, in terms of either going back and showing a bit of her backstory, of what led up to the moment where we see her in Ahsoka, or at least just feeling it through getting to know where she’s at now in her journey. It’s so hard to talk about without giving away things that might have been discussed in the past. All the fans of her and of Rebels know that there’s so much that can be done with that role, so I would be really excited to get to go down that path.”

Mary on working with Dave Filoni (the new creative chief of LucasFilm):

He’s pretty open when it comes to things he would like to do. He lives and breathes Star Wars and there’s an infinite amount of things that he would like to do, that he could do, and his brain is firing on so many levels. I just try not to get too caught up in it because you never know what’s really going to be able to be accomplished and what’s going to make sense within all the storylines. I just wait until they call for me, and then I’ll be like, “Oh, cool, they’re actually going with that idea,” or “Oh, I guess they decided not to.” I just try to go with the flow. But it’s great to get little hints at his process and his frame of mind. It’s really cool.

Mary also did brand new video interviews with her ‘Scott Pilgrim’ co-star Ellen Wong who played Knives Chau. In the two interviews, they talked about getting to revisit their characters and how the Netflix anime series differs from the 2010 film. The transcript for the ComingSoon interview can be found on their site.

As part of the trifecta of women at the center of Star Wars series “Ahsoka,” Mary Elizabeth Winstead shot to the top of IMDb’s STARmeter, staying in the top five through the entire season. Behind her green Twi’lek makeup, Winstead portrayed Hera Syndulla, a character familiar to fans of the animated “Star Wars: Rebels.” To close out the year, the actress lent her voice to the animated ”Scott Pilgrim Takes Off,” playing the same character she portrayed in the live action Scott Pilgrim vs. the World 13 years ago.

Upcoming projects: Rich Flu“A Gentleman in Moscow”

New ‘Scott Pilgrim Takes Off’ Stills and Interview

In a brand new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley gave some insight on how the upcoming Netflix series came to be.

“I was very nervous,” says O’Malley. “I didn’t know we would get anyone, or especially everyone. We just started asking, and Edgar asked, and I wrote a really nice letter, and everyone just very very kindly and very promptly said yes.”

O’Malley believes their cause was aided by the revival of an old email chain which had been set up around the time of the movie’s release to connect the film’s principals. “The cast have spoken about this email chain a lot but there’s one detail that I don’t think anyone has mentioned,” he says. “We were exchanging emails when the movie was coming out and then this thread went dormant for about nine years. Then, before this anime was even on the docket, Michael Cera responded to a meme someone had sent as if no time had passed. He just said, ‘Oh, that’s funny.’ Chris Evans responded like, ‘Michael, what the f— are you doing responding to this email from nine years ago?’ And then we all started chatting again.” O’Malley explains that working with the cast on the TV show felt like reconnecting with family, in a good way. “We were all pretty young when we made the movie,” says O’Malley. “We all felt like family and I think we have ever since.”

Executive producer BenDavid Grabinski also chimed in on his excitement of getting the entire cast back together to reprise their roles.

“I remember sitting in Bryan’s office when we started to see the emails of people saying that they were interested,” says Grabinski. “I literally screamed. That was the first point where we felt like, okay, this could be a cool show.”

Be sure to head to the gallery to check out the brand new stills and stream the show beginning November 17.
