TRON: UPRISING - Watch First Full Episode - Beck's Beginning
Disney has released the first full episode of their new animated series Tron: Uprising, and it looks like a very promising series! I enjoyed this first episode. The series takes place between the events of Tron (1982) and Tron Legacy (2010) and focuses on a character named Beck. This episode is called Beck's Beginning, and it was written by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, who also scripted the recent film.
Here's the Synopsis:
Beck is a young mechanic living in Argon City, a growing metropolis in a far off corner of the grid that has just been occupied by General Tesler, a henchman of the notorious Clu. After his best friend Bodhi is ruthlessly derezzed by Clu's army, Beck seeks justice for his lost friend and launches a crusade against the regime. His rebellion captures the attention of Tron, the greatest warrior The Grid has ever known, who sees the potential in Beck and trains him to be his successor. Labeled with the moniker of The Renegade, Beck sparks a revolution to fight for the freedom of The Grid.
The series is scheduled to premiere on Thursady June 7th on Disney XD. I'll be tuning in to watch the show... will you? Watch the first episode and tell us what you think!
