‘Tron’ gets an afterlife on TV

HollywoodNews.com: There is no ‘game over’ in “Tron’s” future.

Disney is planning to shepherd the franchise after its sequel to the 1982 film, “Tron: Legacy” has left theaters. The film is due out on December 17.

Bleeding Cool reports that there will be an animated “Tron” series in 2011 on the Disney Channel. In an effort to drum up interest in the TV program, Disney XD is scheduled to air a micro-series that bridges the gap between the film and TV series.

Currently, the show is to be titled “Tron: Uprising.”

The first “Tron” capitalized on videogames at the height of their fandom in the ‘80s. The film, which only cost $17 million then, made $33 million at the box office. The first film followed a hacker, who is sucked into the videogame world and forced to participate in gladiatorial games.

Jeff Bridges reprises his role as Kevin Flynn/Clu 2.0 in the movie sequel.
