While script work on a third TRON film continues, Disney XD has a new animated series set in the Grid! TRON: Uprising is set in between TRON and TRON: Legacy and tells the story of Beck (voiced by Elijah Wood).
Beck is a young program who becomes the skillful 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 come to know. Tron will not only teach Beck the fighting and light cycle skills he needs to challenge this brutal military occupation, but he will be a guide and mentor to him as he grows beyond his youthful, impulsive nature into a courageous, powerful, strong leader. Destined to become the next Tron of the system, Beck adopts Tron's persona and becomes the archenemy of General Tesler and his oppressive forces.
The series also features the voices of Lance Henrikson, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Nate Corddry, Reginald VelJohnson, Fred Tatasciore, and Bruce Boxleitner. If rumors are to be believed, Disney is stunned at how good the series looks and how well it's testing. If it connects with audiences in a huge way, Disney won't be far from announcing a Tron 3 release date. Are you ready to go back to the Grid?
