Press release from Disney XD:
Disney XD announced that Southern California viewers will have the opportunity to see a prelude episode of the new animated series TRON: Uprising in a state-of-the-art, high definition theatre on wheels. The 91-seat theatre provides an immersive viewing experience with digital surround sound and stadium seating. The continuous screenings at each location are made available at no charge. The series premieres Thursday, June 7 on Disney XD.
The TRON: Uprising theater on wheels tour will kick off at Hollywood and Highland in Hollywood on Saturday, May 26 and moves to the Huntington Beach Children's Chalk Art Festival in Orange County on Monday, May 28.
TRON: Uprising, produced in CG animation with a 2D aesthetic, focuses on an era of the TRON storyline that transpires after the 1982 feature film and before the story in Walt Disney Studios' TRON: Legacy. It follows the heroic journey of Beck, a young program who becomes the unlikely leader of a revolution inside the computer world of The Grid. His mission is to free his home and friends from the reign of the villainous Clu and his henchman, General Tesler. Trained by Tron, the greatest warrior The Grid has ever known, Beck is given the moniker of The Renegade and ignites an uprising.
TRON: Uprising stars Elijah Wood as Beck, Bruce Boxleitner as Tron, Mandy Moore as Mara, Emmanuelle Chriqui as Paige, Nate Corddry as Zed, Lance Henriksen as General Tesler, Reginald VelJohnson as Able, Paul Reubens as Pavel and Tricia Helfer as the narrator and omnipresent voice of The Grid.
Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series is executive-produced and directed by Charlie Bean (Robotboy, Samurai Jack and Powerpuff Girls). Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (both screenwriters of TRON: Legacy/executive producers of ABC's Lost and Once Upon a Time) developed the series for Disney XD and serve as consulting producers with Justin Springer (co-producer of TRON: Legacy). The music is composed by Joseph Trapanese (TRON: Legacy).
