Tron Uprising:

Mr. Dr.
So did anyone else hear that Disney is going to be making an animated series of Tron called Tron Uprising? It will apparently be set between Tron and Tron Legacy and will star a program called Beck and Tron, as they lead a revolution against Clu 2.

The animation looks very Animatrix-y.

Woah, are those 3D models with traditionally animated faces? Or has cel-shading gotten that good?

And dayum, that's a big-name cast for a TV series.

Silly me, I was actually expecting a Tron series to be animated 2D.

Yes, this animation does look really good. I think their faces might be animated with Toon Boom, which would make the entire thing computer generator, which is fitting.

I read that this will only be 10 episodes. I hope that means the rest of the animation is really good.
Moldova, never change.
Bruce Boxleitner as Tron? That I have to see.

Never thought 2D faces against 3D machinery would even remotely good in anything!

Is it me, or, with "The Legend of Korra" coming, are there more animated mini-series being developed in the States? Mini-series are common in anime, where it makes up about half the output nowadays, but this is the first time I heard of it happening in the United States.

Young Justice, Avengers EMH, TF Prime, the Thundercats reboot, and now this.

Welcome to the new golden age, everybody.

Blame it on the HUB, which was started by 80's and 90's studio execs coming back from out of the ground. But of course, remakes are being made everywhere now.

That wasn't actually sarcasm. I was serious. This is awesome. cool

Well, that looked many times better than I expected.

But then again, so did TRON Legacy.

[up][up] The HUB is God. I'm not even kidding. The entire channel is entirely composed of Better Than It Sounds.

I'm very happy they're using Daft Punk's score, with a few tweaks (which I also like). The charcter models are a bit weird looking, but I'll get used to it.

Oh. So the characters ARE CG MODELS.

I like it less now.

Mr. Dr.
[up]Well they ARE in a computer world, were you really expecting technology to completely flat?

Also I'd say they're more Cell Shaded than flat up CG.

[up]I think from the teaser trailer released weeks ago, we only got one glimpse of a human character's unobscured face, and it looked like it was Flash-animated instead of CG. Yeah, it threw me off too.

Does Disney have any other animated action series in the making?

The Avengers. Kinda hard to remember that they own MARVEL now.

In terms of animation, I suppose you can count Wreck-It Ralph as being action.

Oh, and we have a third Snow White film coming in 2 years. Yeah. As if Mirror Mirror wasn't enough for them.

Diggin' the character designs.

It looks like they're using a low frame rate to make it resemble traditional animation. It works...some of the time.

We have dates

May 18th will be a premiere special called Beck's Beginning, though said special will be available in various forms beforehand.

June 7th is the start of the series proper.

They're even using similar visual effects to the original Tron when those energy batons strike people (that sort of multi lens flare).

And Motorcity is also a Disney action series.

I think I'm having fun
Well the animation style looks fine and I loved both Tron films. I just have to wonder how Australia will get it.

I deal with Aliens, Time Travelers and Espers. Oh and an unknowing god. Try being in my shoes.
