I’m one of the people who really enjoyed “Tron Legacy.” Was it Shakespeare? No, but it was a great visual adventure and a perfect set up for the final cinematic chapter of the Tron Saga. It will be a while before that movie happens, but at least we’ll have what is shaping up to be a pretty slick looking animated series to hold us over.

During Comic-Con Disney XD premiered some great new footage of “Tron Uprising” and I am more excited than ever. They’ve gone all out, not only does the animation look great but check out this cast: Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Lance Henriksen, and Bruce Boxleitner.

The sad thing is that we’ll have to wait until the summer of 2012 to see the show on the air.

Here’s the official synopsis:
Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series follows Beck, a young program who becomes the unlikely leader of a revolution inside the computer world of The Grid. His mission is to free his home and friends from the reign of the villainous Clu and his henchman General Tesler. Beck will be trained by Tron – the greatest warrior the Grid has ever known. Tron will not only teach Beck the fighting skills he needs to challenge this brutal military occupation, but will be a guide and mentor to him as he grows beyond his youthful, impulsive nature into a courageous, powerful leader. Destined to become the new protector of the system, Beck adopts Tron’s persona and becomes the archenemy of Tesler and his oppressive forces.
