While many are excited about TRON: Legacy hitting the movie screen next month, Disney is banking that the film and franchise will be successful enough that little tykes will want in on the action, too.  Disney has given the thumbs up for an animated series called TRON: Uprising, which has been set to hit the Disney XD cable channel in the summer of 2012.

“Tron: Uprising’s” voice cast includes Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Nate Corddry and Lance Henriksen. Bruce Boxleitner will reprise his role as Tron.  “Tron: Uprising” will focus on Beck (voiced by Wood), who leads a revolution inside the Grid’s computer world.

Disney XD is targeted more toward male viewers, and with a Marvel TRON comic in stores now, it looks like TRON won’t be going away anytime soon.
