Oh Hai First Episode of Tron: Uprising


As many, many people told me this weekend — and thanks to all of you — Disney released the first full episode of Tron: Uprising into the wilds of the supernethighwayinfoweb this weekend. I haven’t been able to watch the full episode yet, but I’m impressed with what I’ve seen so far — the animation and backgrounds are gorgeous, I think I’m back on board with the characters’ facial designs, and the story is surprisingly… dark for what I kind of assumed Disney XD would be okay with. I mean, you’ve got a dude outright dying pretty quickly (albeit digitially), and Beck’s fight with the red-tinged lady-program is more than a little naughty. I am absolutely 100% fine with this, but I hope it doesn’t come back and bite the show in the ass because it fails to attract the younger audience it’s supposed to. Anyways, the first episode is above — check it out for yourself and let me know what you think in the comments.
