Disney Channel’s CCO laid out some new info on the upcoming new animated series: TRON: Uprising.
First up is that they’ll be launching it in a ten part microsode approach. This might seem a bit weird, but it worked really well when they launched the Avengers animates series.
Next up is animation. The show will feature a combo of traditional and CGI. Here’s what Marsh had to say on it:
“Iffer a revolutionary visual aesthetic that is really going to help redefine the kind of animation that you can do on television around the globe. And luckily, we’ve been able to use the same writers, the same producers, and some of the same vehicle designers, who’ve created the images for the feature film, in the series.”
We also now know a bit more about the story. It takes place between the first two movies. Here’s a bit more info on the plot:
“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.”
