Tron: Uprising - Tricia Helfer Talks Animated Series and Her TNT Pilot Scent of the Missing

The animated series TRON: Uprising, premiering on Disney XD on June 7th, takes place after the 1982 feature film and before the events in TRON: Legacy. Produced in CG animation with a 2D aesthetic, the series follows the heroic journey of a new character named Beck (voiced by Elijah Wood), a young program who becomes the unlikely leader of a revolution inside the computer world of The Grid.

Question: What did you know about the TRON universe, prior to doing this show?

TRICIA HELFER: I definitely have to admit that I am fairly ignorant, not just to TRON, but almost any pop culture thing that I should know, at my age. I grew up without a television and rarely got to see a movie, so I didn’t really see any of that stuff, and I haven’t been able to catch up since. So, really, my first experience with TRON was seeing commercials for the last movie that came out. I came into The Grid not really knowing anything. The first voice session, I had everyone explain to me exactly what it was, and I still am a little confused.
