GD Quickie: Check out the 'Tron: Uprising' Trailer!

While Tron: Legacy might not have lived up to the classic original, it was a solid film and great fan service. It also got younger kids introduced and intrigued by the world inside of the Grid! Now Disney has released the first trailer for the upcoming animated series Tron: Uprising.

The story is set between the original Tron and Tron: Legacy. A quick overview:

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 2 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.

They have a great cast of voice actors: Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Nate Corddry, Lance Henriksen and Bruce Boxleitner returning once again as Tron.

There will be a ‘micro-series’ Fall of 2011 before a full series appears on Disney XD in summer 2012. Sound familiar? Yep – very much how the Star Wars: Clone Wars series was rolled out – and that has been extremely successful for Cartoon Network.

Hopefully this new series will be well written and imaginative!
