Disney XD Releases New Digital Series, 'TRON: Uprising'
Disney's 2010's TRON: Legacy, starring Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde and a whole lot of computer animation, wasn't the last you've seen of the virtual world they call "The Grid" since the original TRON film rapidly achieved cult-classic status in 1982. Now the Disney XD (Extreme Digital) Channel, is releasing a new digitally animated series called TRON: Uprising, which will feature the voices of stars Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Emmanuelle Chriqui (You Don't Mess with the Zohan) and Bruce Boxleitner, who has been the voice of TRON in both previous iterations.
Disney reveals that the show, TRON: Uprising, Beck's Beginning, introduces the young hero Beck, who rebels against the tyrannical Clu after his best friend Bodhi is destroyed by Clu's army. The great TRON takes the young Beck under his wing and names him his successor. "Labeled with the moniker of The Renegade, Beck sparks a revolution to fight for the freedom of The Grid," reads the official description, according to EW.
TRON: Uprising premieres on Disney XD on June 20, with a special half-hour preview on May 18.
