TRON: Uprising introduces Beck, 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.
Wow, this new teaser for Disney’s upcoming animated series TRON: Uprising looks totally fantastic! The animation is slick, stylish, and suits the setting perfectly, there’s that great Daft Punk score, and the story even sounds solid. I’m looking forward to following a story set entirely within the world of The Grid, and I like that Bruce Boxleitner is back to voice Tron. Hopefully this is one series that will live up to the awesomeness that this commercial promises!
TRON: Uprising premieres on Disney XD in June of 2012.
