Tron: Uprising

Can you believe it's been exactly... 76 days since Tron Legacy first hit theaters? Well to keep your spirits up, we've got some exciting Tron-related news to feature this morning, as quite a bit of it has been hitting the web recently. First up, SlashFilm has details on the Tron Legacy R3CONFIGUR3D album full of remixed versions of Daft Punk's songs from the original soundtrack. Artists include Moby, M83, Crystal Method, Oakenfold, Sander Kleinenberg, and I can't wait to get my hands on it. Release is April 5th, not too long of a wait. Hit the official site to pre-order. There's also a teaser for the new animated Tron TV series!

This teaser just hit the web and it's pretty badass, so I thought I'd throw this up as well. It's basically same kind of CGI from the movie with animated characters, but it looks cool, I'm definitely going to check it out. Tron: Uprising will begin airing on the Disney XD Channel during the Summer of 2012 - showcasing an impressive voice cast, including: Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Nate Corddry, Lance Henriksen and Bruce Boxleitner - reprising his role as TRON! There's also a 10-part micro animated series in the works that will premiere in the Fall. Check out the first teaser here:

Also, I've got to give thanks to Tron-Sector for the tip on the video. In other Tron news, there's a screening in LA coming up this weekend of the original Tron with "special guests" - get tickets from Fandango now. And don't forget to pre-order the DVD/Blu-Ray if you haven't, it's hitting shelves on April 5th next month.

Tron Legacy was released in theaters on December 17th late last year after two years in production and has gone on to make over $395 million worldwide. Did you enjoy the movie? Comment on the Sound Off article.

Tron Legacy was directed by first-time filmmaker Joseph Kosinski. The screenplay was co-written by Adam Horowitz ("Lost"), Richard Jefferies (Blood Tide, Living Hell), Edward Kitsis ("Lost") and the director of the original movie, Steven Lisberger. This was first greenlit because the test teaser played so well at Comic-Con. Disney finally opened Tron Legacy in theaters on December 17th last year in IMAX 3D, the truly optimal viewing experience. The movie will arrive on DVD & Blu-Ray starting April 5th - I've got mine pre-ordered!

    I'm looking forward to the film on Blu-ray. I have the original album. The Moby, M83, Crystal Method, and Oakenfold remixes could be good.

    Movie was shit...really...i was looking forward it so long and finally it resulted into shit. Well now I know what to expect from screenwriters of Lost and directors that have no experience plus with huge budget. Well done.

      i have to disagree, respectfully of course. I thought the tie in to the old movie and the father/son relationship was played well.

    The movie just felt so empty to me. A certain scene made me decide that this movie is borderline bad if the viewer hasn't seen the original Tron and slightly better if he/she has seen it and that's only if you interpret that scene in a near philosophical way. To me, there should've been more emphasis on character building, especially Tron himself (the flashback scenes felt nice but that backstory was seemingly lacking for it would add a lot more depth). Even if the viewer had seen Tron. I'll check out the animated series if I can get around to it. Hopefully they'll do the Tron story more justice than Tron: Legacy. I'm definitely looking forward for the remixes, though.

    This movie had the worst character development in the history of character developments. I wouldnt recommend this to my worst enemy.

    @Alex B thanks for pumping daft punk on this site, consistently. Have you seen them live? I will not miss them next tour!!! Great site in general, wish you had an indie section, though maybe that's too much additional work. Saw tron in 3d imax so the visuals beat out the lead's dim acting. What they lacked IMO was Moebius's design, that illustrator is amazing. Check him out!

      I have actually seen them live! Enjoyed it, but they just play the exact same set over and over, which I've heard hundreds of times (you can buy it as an album too) so it wasn't that exciting, but they're awesome. I love Daft Punk too so I'm happy to always pimp this stuff out! :)

    I think Legacy was perfect for a re-introduction of the series. I enjoyed the experience and I believe that if they take a good look at what went wrong they might just be able to save this franchise from dying....

    This reminds me of that one show that use to be on Cartoon Network... It might have had something to do with Hot Wheels? That's the vibe I'm getting from this trailer.
