If you are fan of TRON, then you’ve seen all the different takes on the lightcycle game from the first movie. And if you are a real fan of TRON, then you are aware that Tron Guy will do anything to show his love. When the two combine to sell Duck Tape, magic happens.
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.
With the Disney’s Tron getting ready to hit the big screen, Marvel is getting in on the act by releasing a ton of variant covers featuring Marvel’s finest in their Tron getup. Take the jump for the complete cover gallery.
If you never had the chance to check out the original TRON movie, and dread having to watch a film with visual effects that don’t stand the test of time, Marvel has you covered. The company released a sneak peek of the upcoming TRON: Original Movie Adaptation #1 that arrives in stores in November.
