New Exceptionally Cool Trailer and Premiere Date for Disney XD’s TRON: UPRISING

This new trailer for the upcoming animated TRON: Uprising is full of eye candy goodness. It’s even better than the previous trailer, and WE CANNOT WAIT for the premiere, which will be – grab your calendar – June 7 on DisneyXD but wait – they have a special surprise coming our way much sooner than that. First, the trailer:

NICE, right? To help get us even more worked up about the series, EW reports that a prequel to this series (and as a reminder, this series’ timeline falls between the two movies) entitled TRON: Uprising, Beck’s Beginning will be airing THIS MONTH – May 18, on the Disney Channel. Here’s the synopsis of that special, followed by the synopsis of the upcoming series:

“TRON: Uprising, Beck’s Beginning,” introduces a Beck, a young mechanic living in Argon City, a growing metropolis in a far off corner of the grid that has just been occupied by General Tesler, a henchman of the notorious Clu. After his best friend Bodhi is ruthlessly derezzed by Clu’s army, Beck seeks justice for his lost friend and launches a crusade against the regime.  His rebellion captures the attention of Tron, the greatest warrior The Grid has ever known, who sees the potential in Beck and trains him to be his successor. Labeled with the moniker of The Renegade, Beck sparks a revolution to fight for the freedom of The Grid.”

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.

TRON: Uprising, Beck’s Beginning premieres May 18 on The Disney Channel.

TRON: Uprising, featuring the voices of Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, and Bruce Boxleitner, premieres June 7 on Disney XD.
