To the delight of Tron fans everywhere, Disney XD has made an early clip of its upcoming new animated series Tron Uprising available online. Featuring the voices of Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Paul Reubens, Lance Henriksen and Bruce Boxleitner, the series will premiere on the cabler in the summer of 2012. The show is directed and exec produced by Charlie Bean and Sean Bailey.
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.
Here is the clip which debuted at Comic-Con last week:
