TRON: UPRISING - New Episodes Are Here!

Submitted By: WorldOutWest



When the TRON: UPRISING animated series debuted this past May -- it struck me as something that transcended being "just" a television series: the production value was striking -- on the quality level of feature animation, and unlike anything that was otherwise commonplace amongst much TV animated series fare. Since then, UPRISING has consistently effused fantastic, imaginative direction and spectacular, highly stylized art design and music -- complemented by a sci-fi/fantasy "dream cast" including Elijah Wood, Bruce Boxleitner, Lance Henriksen, Mandy Moore, Paul Rebuens, and Tricia Helfer -- with clever, entertaining sci-fi stories delving further into the grand mythology of the World of TRON.

Also impressively, the series immediately cemented its own definitive place between both iconic TRON movies with its strong, signature elements -- making it stand head to head with each film.

However, since its debut, the series has had to contend with long breaks between certain episodes, making it difficult for many viewers to track and follow the series with any type of regularity. As well, its time slot has changed twice -- and is now being changed again to Sundays at midnight, Pacific time -- starting on December 2nd. Thankfully we live in the day and age of being able to set our DVRs (digital video recorders) to easily record TV programming!

Many on the net have also voiced that they do not get the Disney X D channel upon which it airs -- and the series actually found higher ratings and a wider audience when it was "shared" briefly on the Disney Channel for a few episodes. Other excellent ways to view the show are via iTunes, Xbox Live Marketplace, the Playstation Store, and Amazon.com Instant Video -- episodes are added there within hours of their broadcast on Disney X D -- and come with full Hi-Definition and Standard Definition viewing options.

I recently had the privilege of viewing an upcoming episode -- "The Stranger" -- which is set for broadcast on December 16th (two weeks after the series resumes episodes on December 2nd). Just when it seemed the series couldn't possibly get any better, the "envelope has been pushed even further" in stunning artistry and inventiveness -- and just flat out coolness. I won't go into any spoiler territory here -- but rest assured, it's epic!

There are nine more episodes in this season of TRON: UPRISING -- and to quote Castor from TRON: LEGACY -- "This is going to be quite the ride!".

Keep checking back to TRON-SECTOR for additional updates. You can also follow UPRISING's Director Charlie Bean on his twitter page here -- visit Art Director Alberto Mieglo's website here -- and check out Music Composer Joe Traponese's twitter page here. Speaking of UPRISING's outstanding music -- fans will be pleased to know there will be an official TRON: UPRISING soundtrack release soon!
