More Details On Disney's TRON UPRISING Animated TV Series!!

Merrick here...



...with a few tidbits on that TRON animated series we've been hearing about.  

BoxOfficeMagazine talked with Adam Horowitz -  a writer/Executive Producer on LOST.  He also scripted TRON LEGACY and is one of the shepherds of the new TRON UPRISING toon that'll show up on Disney XD.  

We already know that the show's amazing voice cast will include Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Nate Corddry and Lance Henriksen, with  Bruce Boxleitner reprising his TRON character, but Horowitz offered further details in THIS piece at BoxOfficeMagazine.  

"...we're treating it very seriously."


He explained that the events of the show will take place in between the events of TRON and TRON: Legacy. "This animated show will take place from when Flynn is in a safe house. It's from when Clu takes over the grid to before when Sam comes in. So if you were wondering what was the grid like before that, then watch the show."

Which dovetails nicely with Variety's previous report report that Wood's character would be called "Beck", and lead "a revolution inside the Grid's computer world."  

Hmmm.  Could be quite interesting -  I wanna see that.  Guess it's a good thing Time Warner just bumped Disney XD into HD on our local cable system...
