Is it weird that when I look at this trailer for the upcoming “Tron: Uprising” TV animated series that the visuals kinda look like the big-budget movie’s CG? I mean, it’s almost identical. Which says what exactly about the movie? I’m not sure, but probably that it’s kinda like a cartoon show that just happens to have live people walking around every now and then, I guess.
Anyways, check out the first trailer for “Tron: Uprising”, which will be premiering on the Disney XD channel sometime during the Summer of 2012.
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.
The voice cast, via Tron-Sector, is pretty impressive for a TV animated series, including Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Nate Corddry, Lance Henriksen, and Bruce Boxleitner.
