Tron: Uprising

As I’ve said before, Tron is guaranteed to make a fair chunk of change in the box office, but that doesn’t mean that the movie is definitely going to be good.  Hollywood produces don’t understand that great sales do not mean great movie.  The popularity of the original Tron may draw people in, but they’ll only want more if the plot is good, despite this it has already been announced that an animated TV series has been commissioned.  The show will be similar to the Star Wars series Clone Wars, which helped bridged the gap between episodes II and III.  However as the game is attempting to do the same thing it is a reasonable assumption that the show is just a plan to make more money from the Tron franchise.

The series will have one major disadvantage which is that it will have a lot of limitations.  It will have to be set within a certain time, plus viewers will know what happens after, as they will probably have seen Legacy so the show will contain few, if any, surprises.

The TV series is not the only way that Disney is cashing in on the power of Tron.  A Tron monorail (Tronorail) has been set up in Disneyland.  There are also rumours that Tron fever is spreading through Disney and new rides and themed areas are on there way.

Let me know what you think below.  Do you think that Disney should make a Tron series?
