If 'TRON: Legacy' wasn't enough for you and you've become so addicted to the adventures of the Grid that you need a weekly fix, you'll be able to feed your hunger in the summer of 2012. That's when Disney premieres the animated prequel 'TRON: Uprising.'

Set between the events of the 1982 original and the 3D holiday blockbuster of 2010, the 10-part 'Uprising' tells the story of Beck, a young computer program who unwittingly finds himself leading a revolution against the evil Clu 2. Along the way, he'll be aided by that hero of heroes, Tron (voiced by Bruce Boxleitner himself!). Plus, we'll also find out how Flynn went into hiding.

If you're already jonesing for more 'Tron,' calm down because we have the first trailer for 'Uprising' behind the cut.


In addition to Boxleitner, 'Uprising' sports an impressive voice cast: Elijah Wood provides the voice of Beck and Lance Henriksen will add his gravel-voiced charm to the part of General Tesler, Clu 2's henchman and archnemesis of Beck. All that, plus Paul Reubens and Reginald "Carl Winslow" VelJohnson too!

'TRON: Uprising' premieres in the summer of 2012 on Disney XD, the action-adventure cable channel geared for boys (and for your "inner boy," if you're over 20).
