Following the success of the two TRON movies Disney has created the epic series TRON:Uprising
As you will see from the trailer TRON: Uprising is one kick-ass animation. Made with a mixture of 2D animation, courtesy of Toon Boom Animation’s Harmony software, and CG graphics the series is set in the computer world between the events taking place in TRON and TRON Legacy. In this series, a program called Beck (voiced by Elijah Wood) starts an uprising in the fight against Clu and his second in command, General Tesler (Lance Henriksen).
With the debut of this official trailer, Disney XD’s rollout of the striking new CG animated series TRON: Uprising has begun! The show will launch with a 30-minute uninterrupted prelude titled “Beck’s Beginning” on Disney Channel on Friday, May 18 (9:30 p.m. ET/PT) with an encore on Disney XD Monday, May 21 (7 p.m. ET/PT) with the series kicking off Thursday, June 7 (9 p.m.) on XD. A multiplatform campaign will roll out concurrently with these TV events.
The preview shows the incredible stylistic challenges and ground-breaking animation which Disney has produced to create this sure-to-be-cult series.
TRON: Uprising is slated for release in June 2012 on the Disney XD channel.
