Promo Trailer for TRON: UPRISING the Animated Series
Hey gang here's the first promo trailer for the new Disney XD animated series TRON: Uprising. This actually looks better than I expected. It's got a nice mix of traditional and CG animation going on, and it keep the same style and feel as the movie which is cool. As far as how good the story and script are, I imagine it will be pretty much the same thing we saw in the movie Tron: Legacy, which was pretty much just a big budget live-action cartoon anyway. I also love the voice cast they were able to round up for this thing which 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.
Here are the details on the new series:
The story focuses on an era of the "TRON" storyline that transpires after the popular 1982 feature film and before the story in Walt Disney Studios' upcoming TRON: Legacy. Its impressive list of artists, animators, directors, producers and digital technicians includes executive producer/director Charlie Bean ("Robotboy," "Samurai Jack," and "Powerpuff Girls"); and consulting producers Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz (both screenwriters of TRON: Legacy / executive producers of "Lost") and Justin Springer (co-producer of TRON: Legacy). The series will be preceded by a 10-part "TRON" micro-series launching in Fall 2011 on Disney XD.
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.
TRON: UPRISING will begin airing on the Disney XD channel during the Summer of 2012 - showcasing an impressive voice cast. There's also a 10-part micro animated series in the works that will premiere in the Fall.
