Last year Disney announced they were making an animated TV series called Tron: Uprising, which takes place between the events of the original 1982 Tron movie and Tron: Legacy. Today Tron Sector (via FirstShowing) noticed that the first teaser trailer has appeared online, and you can watch it below!
The music wants to be Daft Punk, but is isn’t. The trailer looks pretty cool though, and i’m sure kids will enjoy it when it debuts in the summer of 2012 on Disney XD,
The voice cast includes Elijah Wood as Beck, Emmanuelle Chriqui as Paige, Mandy Moore as Mara, Nate Corddry as Zed, Lance Henriksen as Tesler, Paul Reubens as Pavel, Reginald VelJohnson as Able and Bruce Boxleitner reprising his role as Tron.
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.
