TV, Comic Books
USA Today has debuted a new minute-long teaser and promotional art for TRON: Uprising, Disney XD’s upcoming 10-episode animated series that bridges the gap between 1982′s TRON and and 2010′s TRON: Legacy.
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 show, which premieres in June, features a voice cast that includes Elijah Wood as Beck, Emmanuelle Chriqui as Paige, Mandy Moore as Mara, Paul Reubens as Pavel, Reginald VelJohnson as Able, Lance Henriksen as Tesler and Bruce Boxleitner reprising his role as TRON.
