Watch the Comic-Con Footage for Disney XD’s Animated Series TRON: UPRISING

by     Posted 3 years, 35 days ago


I liked Tron: Legacy more than most of you, but I understand the complaints.  I hope that Disney XD’s new animated series Tron: Uprising is a source of redemption, much like Genndy Tartakovsky’s Star Wars: Clone Wars rose from the ashes of disappointment in the prequels.  After all, few worlds are better suited for animation than the Grid.

Disney XD premiered new footage at Comic-Con last week, and posted the clip online today.  As expected, it looks pretty darn cool.  Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Lance Henriksen, and Bruce Boxleitner provide voices for the series.  Watch the new clip after the break.

The clip starts off with a series of stills and test footage, but really gets going around the 1:00 mark.

For more Tron: Uprising video, watch the teaser trailer here.  The show is set to premiere summer 2012.  Here’s the official synopsis:

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.

    You know what? I could star at all of TRON: Legacy and Uprising for days and not get bored. I love the world Kosinski and the others created for The Grid. This series better have a ton of Grid Wars.

    I personally really loved TRON: Legacy, as you said, it certainly wasn’t without it’s flaws, but I thought it was great fun and certainly better than the bad rap it got. I hope this series does well, because I would love to see Kosinski and company tie up the loose ends from Legacy and really end the thing with a bang.

    I thought Tron: Legacy was amazing, having only seen it recently to now watching it four times in the last few weeks. The soundtrack, direction, the beautiful and poignant ending; this film has fast become one of my favourites of all time. I, like others, would love to see the cast and Kosinski back for more in the future.

    This looks really good. I have one issue. if this takes place in between Tron and Legacy, is it before the Iso’s and Clu turning on Flynn? And if not then where is Clu and whyis Tron still “alive” ?
