Regardless of the poor box office ticket sales and negative reviews for Tron-Legacy, Disney isn’t giving up on the franchise, and is moving full ahead with an animated series. The voice work for the series includes my personal favourite Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Lance Henriksen, and Bruce Boxleitner. Also worth noting is a remix of Daft Punk’s score used in the trailer below. The clip appeared at Comic Con last week and the series is set to premiere in Summer 2012.
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.
