Disney XD has released a first trailer for TRON: Uprising, its upcoming animated series based on TRON: Legacy.
Personally, I was surprised to find out that the series — which stars an eclectic voice cast that includes Elijah Wood, Lance Henrikssen, Mandy Moore, Paul Ruebens, and Bruce Boxleitner — takes place before Legacy, and not after it. Uprising follows a resistance leader named Beck, who tries to free his home and friends from CLU. Beck gets his training from Tron, and eventually even takes on the Tron “mantle” to rally the enemies of CLU. (I’m guessing he’s not all that successful, since CLU goes on to be the villain of Legacy.)
TRON: Uprising is set to be a 10-episode series that airs Summer 2012. It’s being produced by the director and writers of the film, along with Samurai Jack producer Charlie Bean. Production is being handled by Disney‘s own TV animation arm.
