Whether you loved, hated, or were merely disappointed by TRON: Legacy, the newest installment in the TRON saga should pique your interest. The animated Disney series TRON: Uprising received an incredible reception from fans of all ages at San Diego Comic-Con and it’s easy to see why.
Fans looking for the happy place between the updated graphics showcased in Legacy and the enduring storyline of the original movie will find that place in Uprising. Set after the end of TRON but before the sequel, the series, which premiered on June 7, follows a young program named Beck (Elijah Wood).
As the latest light cycle riding, identity disc welding hero of The Grid, Beck becomes the unlikely leader of a rebellion. An apprentice to the legendary warrior Tron (Bruce Boxleitner), Beck earns the name The Renegade as he battles against the villains Clu and General Tesler (Lance Henriksen).
Also starring Mandy Moore (Mara), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Paige), and Nate Corddry (Zed), TRON: Uprising airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. on Disney XD, with encore episodes on Friday nights at 10 p.m. on Disney Channel.
