New TV Spot and Image from the Animated Series TRON: UPRISING

Last week, we showed you a poster and some brief footage from the upcoming animated TV series, TRON: Uprising, and now a new TV spot and image have gone online.  The series takes place between 1982’s TRON and 2010’s TRON: Legacy.  In the animated series, the protagonist, a program named Beck (voiced by Elijah Wood), starts an uprising (the title isn’t misleading!) in the fight against Clu and his second-in-command, General Tesler (Lance Henriksen).  Beck was previously trained to fight by Tron (Bruce Boxleitner), but then Tron disappeared.

TRON: Uprising will have to carry the TRON brand while Disney mulls giving the greenlight to TRON 3, but I don’t know how interesting the series can be since Beck’s “uprising” clearly didn’t do much to stop Clu.  Then again, Star Wars: The Clone Wars is ridiculously popular, and everyone knows how that story ends.  TRON obviously has a lot more work to do to build up that kind of audience, but at least there’s a precedent.  Hit the jump to check out the TV spot and image.  The show also features the voices of Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Nate Corddry, and Reginald VelJohnson. TRON: Uprising premieres on Disney XD in June.

Here’s the official synopsis for TRON: Uprising:

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.
