Are you ready to return to the grid? It’s been over a year of waiting since we first laid eyes on the preview for Tron Uprising, with promises that it would be coming at some point in 2012. According to EW, that magical day of the show’s premiere is imminent. Set your DVRs for June 7th because that’s when the new animated series will premiere on Disney XD.
If that sounds like eons away, then there’s good news: the network will air a special prelude on The Disney Channel on May 18.
Check out the second trailer for the show, which is set between the first Tron film and its sequel, Tron: Legacy.
Here’s the official synopsis for the first season:
“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.”
