It was on Disney's XD Channel tonight, and airing weekly on Thursdays, 8pm.
An animated sequel between Tron
and Tron: Legacy
movies, the focus is placed upon a new character, Beck, who dons the mantle of 'hero' and makes his new way as the new Tron.
I watched the last 5-10 minutes of Ep01 (Beck's Beginning), and all of Ep02 + Ep03 (The Renegade, Part I and II).
The cast is quite full of stars: Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore (Rapunzel from Tangled
), Tricia Helfer (Six from BSG
, Lance Reddick (from Fringe
) and Bruce Boxleitner reprising his role as the original Tron.
Visually it's gorgeous. The environments just gets you in THE MOOD. Not so fond of the character designs, but I do recognize it's inspired by Peter Chung (Aeon Flux) and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Characters have short torsos and elongated legs. The outfits I rather like, it's the faces themselves I'm not partial to. (eg. Perl) Still, it's damn pretty!
The music is awesome. (Daft Punk and Joseph Trapanese)
The animation is good-okay. I spotted recycled animation here and there, and sometimes the characters move rather choppy. Fight sequences look fluid whether hand-to-hand or on cycles. (I love the cycles. I love the bikes!)
I'm looking forward to the next episode. :DLinks:Official WebsiteWikipedia Article
