Disney’s plans for their TRON resurrection include big plans for it to be a tentpole for their boy-friendly offerings; although TRON: LEGACY didn’t quite slay as much as hoped at the box office, that never stopped the Disney Army from following a plan.
Tron: Uprising, the cartoon, starts airing on XD in fall 2012 and it has some good folks attached: director Charlie Bean and painter Alberto Mielgo . Definitely looks like something folks can watch late at night while they come down from being party people, which is of course exactly the audience Disney planned it for.
Voice talent includes Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Nate Corddry, Lance Henriksen, and Bruce Boxleitner.
