TRON: UPRISING Gets Official Trailer And Premiere Date
The Disney XD Cable channel will start running the animated series Tron: Uprising on JUNE 7th and a trailer has been released for it.
I am a huge fan of the original TRON and saw it more then a few times in the theaters during it’s original release and own it on all the assorted disk formats… and I’ll admit that I was kinda disappointed in TRON: LEGACY when I saw it in the theaters last year although I did buy it on BluRay to give it another chance.
Having said that I’ve got to say this looks amazing…. with reservations. Mostly that reservation involves the ‘disney’ name attached to the project. Disney is the kiss of crap on any project these days but I’ve got hope that this was produced far enough outside the studio that they didn’t put their patented stink on it.
The series takes place between the original film and Legacy and Disney will be airing a special to get things up and running they will air Tron: Uprising, Beck’s Beginning on May 18th.
The series is voiced by Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens(!), Nate Corddry, Lance Henriksen (!!) and Bruce Boxleitner (!!!).
Here’s the official description:
“TRON: Uprising, Beck’s Beginning,” introduces a Beck, a young mechanic living in Argon City, a growing metropolis in a far off corner of the grid that has just been occupied by General Tesler, a henchman of the notorious Clu. After his best friend Bodhi is ruthlessly derezzed by Clu’s army, Beck seeks justice for his lost friend and launches a crusade against the regime. His rebellion captures the attention of Tron, the greatest warrior The Grid has ever known, who sees the potential in Beck and trains him to be his successor. Labeled with the moniker of The Renegade, Beck sparks a revolution to fight for the freedom of The Grid.”
