TV SERIES - Tron: Uprising - Canadian Content

As of tonight people are going to realize that a visually revolutionary show has been created by Disney.  That show is Tron: Uprising.  The show has mastered the melding of 2D style with 3D visuals.  This is likely due to hiring top design talent such as lead Character Designer Robert Valley and Art Directer Alberto Mielgo.

What people probably aren't going to be aware of however is that Canadian animation software, Toon Boom Harmony, was used to achieve the final look of the film.

This trailer doesn't do the actual episode that aired tonight justice - but it's a taste:


Cartoon Brew just posted some great development visuals from the show.  Check them out here:

Here’s the official synopsis for TRON: Uprising:
Beck is a young mechanic living in Argon City, a growing metropolis in a far off corner of the grid that has just been occupied by General Tesler, a henchman of the notorious Clu. After his best friend Bodhi is ruthlessly derezzed by Clu’s army, Beck seeks justice for his lost friend and launches a crusade against the regime. His rebellion captures the attention of Tron, the greatest warrior The Grid has ever known, who sees the potential in Beck and trains him to be his successor. Labeled with the moniker of The Renegade, Beck sparks a revolution to fight for the freedom of The Grid.
