'Tron' will return again ... as animated series
No matter how TRON: Legacy performs at the box office -- or whether a third film is eventually commissioned -- Disney has greenlit plans to resurrect the TRON franchise as an animated series, Moviehole.net reports. The name: TRON: Uprising.
"At this stage, Bruce Boxleitner ('Alan Bradley/Tron') is the only actor from the movies involved in the 'toon," Moviehole says. "That could change though – hopefully David Warner and Cindy Morgan get a call, we’d all love to know what Ed Dillinger and Lora are up to these days. For the moment, the voice cast of TRON : Uprising, which will air on Disney XD in 2012, are Mandy Moore (who of course recently lent her voice to Disney’s Tangled), Lance Henriksen (of Aliens fame), Elijah 'Froddo' Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui (Sloane from Entourage), Paul 'Pee Wee' Reubens, and Nate Corddry, who played Tom Jeter on Aaron Sorkin’s Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Great cast."
Boxofficemagazine.com has some details too on the actual plot: ""This animated show will take place from when Flynn is in a safe house," screenwriter Eddie Kitsis said. "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."
