"TRON: UPRISING," A SPIN-OFF OF THE "TRON" FEATURE FILMS, TO PREMIERE IN SUMMER 2012 ON DISNEY XD

Disney XD has put "TRON: Uprising" on the grid - a compelling story and visually stunning television series scheduled to premiere in summer 2012 on Disney XD. The story focuses on an era of the "TRON" storyline that transpires after the popular 1982 feature film and before the story in Walt Disney Studios' upcoming "TRON: Legacy." Its impressive list of artists, animators, directors, producers and digital technicians includes executive producer/director Charlie Bean ("Robotboy," "Samurai Jack," and "Powerpuff Girls"); and consulting producers Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz (both screenwriters of "TRON: Legacy" / executive producers of "Lost") and Justin Springer (co-producer of "TRON: Legacy"). The series will be preceded by a 10-part "TRON" micro-series launching in Fall 2011 on Disney XD.

The noteworthy voice cast of "TRON: Uprising" includes Elijah Wood as Beck, Emmanuelle Chriqui as Paige, Mandy Moore as Mara, Nate Corddry as Zed, Lance Henriksen as Tesler, Paul Reubens as Pavel, Reginald VelJohnson as Able and Bruce Boxleitner reprising his role as Tron.

In making the announcement, Gary Marsh, president, Entertainment, and Chief Creative Officer, Disney Channels Worldwide said: "'Tron: Uprising' is the culmination of an extraordinary collaboration between Disney Television Animation and our feature film studio. And it is a perfect reflection of everything we want Disney XD to stand for � innovative storytelling, aspirational, heroic characters, and world class design."

Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series follows 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. Beck will be trained by Tron - the greatest warrior the Grid has ever known. Tron will not only teach Beck the fighting skills he needs to challenge this brutal military occupation, but will be a guide and mentor to him as he grows beyond his youthful, impulsive nature into a courageous, powerful leader. Destined to become the new protector of the system, Beck adopts Tron's persona and becomes the archenemy of Tesler and his oppressive forces.

About "TRON: Legacy"

"TRON: Legacy" is a 3D action-packed adventure set in a digital world unlike anything captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father, Kevin Flynn (Oscar� and Golden Globe� winner Jeff Bridges), a man once known as the world's leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the abandoned Flynn's Arcade - that could have only come from his father - he finds himself pulled into a world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-or-death journey across a visually stunning universe - created by Kevin himself - which has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons and landscapes, and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.

"TRON: Legacy" is directed by Joseph Kosinski and produced by Sean Bailey, Jeffrey Silver and Steven Lisberger. The story is by Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz and Brian Klugman & Lee Sternthal, and the screenplay is by Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz, based on characters created by Steven Lisberger and Bonnie MacBird. Presented in Disney Digital 3D�, Real D 3D and IMAX� 3D and scored by Grammy Award��winning electronic music duo Daft Punk, "TRON: Legacy" hits theaters on December 17, 2010.
