We've already featured a couple trailers for Tron: Uprising, the promising animated series that will help bridge the gap between the original 1982 film and the 2010 sequel Tron: Legacy. Before the new series debuts on Disney XD this summer on June 7th, a prelude called Beck’s Beginning, will air on the flagship Disney Channel on May 18th. However, for those who don't want to wait a few more days, Disney has posted the 30-minute prequel episode in its entirety over at YouTube. This is a really slick introduction to the stylish new series, and I really hope it keeps audiences excited for a Tron: Legacy follow-up. Watch!
Here's the Tron: Uprising prequel episode Beck's Beginning which Disney posted on YouTube:
Produced by Disney Television Animation, Tron: Uprising follows Beck (voiced by Elijah Wood), a young program who becomes the unlikely leader of a revolution inside the computer world of The Grid. Beck leads his family and world in revolution against the tyrannical Clu and his No. 2, General Tesler (voiced by Lance Henriksen). Fortunately, Beck has been trained to fight by the top warrior in all of this digitized world, Tron (voiced, of course, by Bruce Boxleitner). The voice cast also includes Emmanuelle Chriqui as Paige, Mandy Moore as Mara, Nate Corddry as Zed, Paul Reubens as Pavel and Reginald VelJohnson as Able. Tron Uprising the animated series will start airing on Disney XD this summer on June 7th with a prelude called Tron: Uprising, Beck’s Beginning, airing on the flagship Disney Channel on May 18th . Looking good?
