Disney’s bridging the gap between the first and second TRON movies with a new animated series called “TRON: Uprising”. The series will premiere on Disney XD on June 7th.
The animation looks slick! I like the style they’re using and it seems to lend itself well to the franchise as an animated adaptation of the grid from TRON: Legacy. No word yet on running time (most likely a 30 minute show) but it is slated to be a 10 part miniseries.
The show has a pretty impressive lineup of voice talent too!
- Beck (voiced by Elijah Wood)
- Tron (voiced by Bruce Boxleitner)
- Kevin Flynn/Clu (voiced by Fred Tatasciore)
- General Tesler (voiced by Lance Henriksen)
- Paige (voiced by Emmanuelle Chriqui)
- Mara (voiced by Mandy Moore)
- Pavel (voiced by Paul Reubens)
- Zed (voiced by Nate Corddry)
- Able (voiced by Reginald VelJohnson)
Beck is a young program who becomes the skillful leader of a revolution inside the computer world of The Grid. His mission is to free his home and friends from the reign of the villainous Clu 2 and his henchman General Tesler. Beck will be trained by Tron – the greatest warrior the Grid has ever come to know. Tron will not only teach Beck the fighting and light cycle skills he needs to challenge this brutal military occupation, but he will be a guide and mentor to him as he grows beyond his youthful, impulsive nature into a courageous, powerful, strong leader. Destined to become the next Tron of the system, Beck adopts Tron’s persona and becomes the archenemy of General Tesler and his oppressive forces.
