A bit of time has passed on the Grid and real life since we’ve heard anything new concerning the Disney XD debut of the Tron: Uprising animated series. Last evening I found a report that states it will hit the airwaves starting in June but their will be 10 three minute micro episodes that will appear in April. Though whether that is just on Disney XD or perhaps they’ll have a website you can visit to watch it is still in question.
Thanks to our friends at Collider.Com for these excerpts on the storyline for the series from Disney Channels’ President and Chief Creative Officer Gary Marsh: (Spoilers)
“What’s happened is that Tron has been badly injured by villainous Clu, but he has found a protege, a brilliant young mechanic, who is another program like himself, named Beck and voiced by Elijah Wood, who TRON decides he is going to train to be the next TRON.”
For those that have picked up Marvel Comics Tron: Betrayal you will recognize that the series takes place just shortly after the end of that tale. Uprising is set in between the two original movies, it also seems more than possible that we shall learn how the great Tron falls and becomes Rinzler, perhaps he has been infected by Clu’s programming during that initial attack that we saw in the comics and flashback sequence in Legacy? Like a slow poison in his system? (End Spoilers)
