Tron TV – Animating The Animated
What do you get when you take one of those live action and cartoon hybrids and take out all the live action? You get Tron: Uprising.
Hot on the heels of the mild success of Tron: Legacy, screenwriters Adam Horowitz and Eddie Kitsis told Box Office Magazine they’ve written a ten-part animated miniseries for television, and they’ve got franchise star Bruce Boxleitner to lend his voice.
They’ve also secured the services of Elijah Wood, Linda Moore, Lance Henriksen, and good ol’ Pee-Wee Herman himself, Paul Reubens.
The miniseries will be set between the two movies, which should be no problem as there was a 28-year gap between the releases. Lots of little details that, sadly, niggled few if anyone, will be revealed.
Why do I get a Clone Wars vibe off of this?
While no broadcast or cable network has been announced, one assumes it will be carried by one of Disney’s many channels (ABC, ABC Family, Disney, ToonDisney; probably not ESPN El Ocho) or, if it really sucks, go direct to the Internets.
