This past weekend saw the debut of a new two minute promo for the June series start for Tron: Uprising on the Disney XD channel. The network has had a good plan in palce to build towards this spring the last couple of years with more boys oriented animation and series in order to shake the image of being just a girls network. Which is important considering the varied properties Disney owns and having a huge segment of the youth audience unaccounted for. With the series taking place in between the movies, it may be “predictable” in its outcome to some fans, but it offers up a chance to expand on the world in a fascinating watch. Check it out below.
Plot Concept: 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.
