Tron Animated Series Coming in 2012

Disney has plans to launch an animated Tron series, called, Tron: Uprising, on their XD channel in 2012.

From Blastr:

Bruce Boxleitner, or his voice, anyway, will reprise his role as Tron in the series, which will be directed and executive-produced by Samurai Jack veteran Charlie Bean, while Legacy writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz will consult. The voices of Elijah Wood, Lance Henriksen, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens and Emmanuelle Chriqui will be joining Boxleitner’s in the neon wonderland.

No word on what Tron: Uprising will be about, or how it’ll relate to the previously announced, identically named 10-part microseries which, according to Collider, would follow “a young program named Beck who stands up against an evil regime headed by Clu, who obtains his status after the defeat of Tron, the security watchdog program.”

Sounds intriguing.  [image via]
