Disney’s Comic Con Preview of Tron: Uprising

6 Comments

I thought Joseph Kosinski’s “Tron: Legacy” was a decent sci-fi movie with great visuals, but it was definitely lacking in the story department. It certainly had a lot of potential for more stories from The Grid, though, and that’s apparently where “Tron: Uprising” will be set. Disney XD has released the teaser trailer for their upcoming animated TV series that they showed to fans over at Comic Con. For an animated TV show, “Uprising” features a pretty impressive voice cast that includes Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Lance Henriksen, and Bruce Boxleitner. I mean, that’s pretty impressive for a kiddie show on TV, don’t you think? Anyways, more info on the upcoming show below.

Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series follows Beck, a young program who becomes the unlikely 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 and his henchman General Tesler. Beck will be trained by Tron – the greatest warrior the Grid has ever known. Tron will not only teach Beck the fighting skills he needs to challenge this brutal military occupation, but will be a guide and mentor to him as he grows beyond his youthful, impulsive nature into a courageous, powerful leader. Destined to become the new protector of the system, Beck adopts Tron’s persona and becomes the archenemy of Tesler and his oppressive forces.

Look for the animated show to arrive in the Summer of 2012.

    As cool as this looks and stuff, I’m just a lil confused with the time line. If this takes place before Tron: Legacy, then Tron shouldn’t be Tron and where is Clu?

    I don’t think is before Legacy. Gotta be after that. Before Legacy he wasn’t Tron but Ranzor (or something like that).

    Whatever, My love for Tron died with Legacy.
