The animated series TRON: Uprising, premiering on Disney XD on June 7th, takes place after the 1982 feature film and before the events in TRON: Legacy. Produced in CG animation with a 2D aesthetic, the series follows the heroic journey of a new character named Beck (voiced by Elijah Wood), a young program who becomes the unlikely leader of a revolution inside the computer world of The Grid. You can watch the first episode here.
At a press day for the show, actress Tricia Helfer, who lends her voice to the digital utopia The Grid, talked about how much she knew about the TRON universe before signing on, how she enjoys the sci-fi genre, putting a voice to something like The Grid, what she thinks of the look of the animation, doing voice-over work for video games, her dream project, and the fact that she’d like to return to series television and is waiting on word for a pilot she did for TNT.
