Trivia / TRON: Uprising

  • All-Star Cast: Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Lance Henriksen, Aaron Paul, Nate Corddry, and Emmanuelle Chriqui in addition to Bruce Boxleitner reprising Tron and Olivia Wilde guest-starring as Quorra.
  • Doing It for the Art: Rasket was inspired by the Renegade's actions to create and spread his "TRON LIVES" 'free code' despite the inherent danger of such beliefs.
  • Genius Bonus: The names of the cities, aside from Purgos, are elements on the periodic table. In order of introduction, they also follow the Greek alphabet: Argon, Bismuth, Gallium. note 
    • Parts of the fandom who work in real-world computer repair have pointed out that Cyrus's Omnicidal Maniac plan is exactly what you do with a hard drive that's too corrupted to save and that the whole Dyson-Tron rivalry is very much like what happens if you have two incompatible pieces of security software on a system.
  • Playing Against Type: Paul Reubens as Pavel.
  • Screwed by the Network: Seven episodes in, it suddenly got postponed to October. The return lasted three episodes, just long enough to get the two-parter out of the way, before disappearing from the lineup again until December, where it got moved to midnight on Mondays. Short of not being aired at all, you cannot get much more screwed than that.
  • Shout-Out: The Jolly Tricksters disguise (bowler hats and a painted-on Slasher Smile) may be invoking A Clockwork Orange. The composer who did the music for A Clockwork Orange? Wendy Carlos, who also did the music for the 1982 TRON.
