I have yet to see neither TRON nor its sequel, TRON: Legacy, but the upcoming animated TV-series addition to the franchise, TRON: Uprising, has piqued my interest. The ten-part series is said to be set chronologically between the two films. With this latest TRON project scheduled to air on Disney XD in January 2012, I should be able to catch up on the two films by then.

Reginald VelJohnson (Family Matters) and Meagan Holder (90210, Make It Or Break It) will voice the characters of Able and Ada, respectively. Mandy Moore, Elijah Wood, and Paul Reubens also lend their voices to TRON: Uprising.

According to TheDisneyBlog.com, the show's synopsis is basically this:

Tron: Uprising follows the story of a young program named Beck as he is trained by Tron and becomes the arch-enemy of General Tesler.

I don't know if that means anything to anyone reading this who has seen the two films, but for someone like me, it doesn't tell me much.

Check out this teaser:

    If you have not seen Tron: Legacy, then you have not seen Yaya DaCosta as a STUNNING Siren. http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3706501120/nm1861624 She helps to dress the main character, Sam Flynn.

    Also, check out Conrad Coates as Bartik. http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2746784000/nm0167626 He has a small roll, but you will see how important his character is in Tron: Uprising.

    I am delighted that there are black voices on this. As a mother of a nine-year old I've seen pretty much animated movie that's come out and I am personally quite irritated by the lack of diversity in voice casting. It's the rare film that has a voice cast that reflects the viewing audience. Good for the producers. I'm pretty sure that this show will be viewed in our home.
