The Disney animated series “Tron Uprising” premieres tonight on the Disney XD cable channel. Here’s the prologue episode, showing the back story of how a character named Beck becomes the new Tron. It looks very well done.
The concept is it shows what happens in Flynn’s “grid” world before “Tron Legacy,” but after Clu turns corrupt and defeats the original Tron character.
I remember when I watched the movie I wondered why there were gladiatorial games going on. In the original “Tron” this could be explained by these games being the ones we played in the arcade, only it was really life and death for the programs. This episode also explains why the games return.
