With the apparent end of Uprising, I thought we'd reflect on what it was and what could have been...
The world that they expanded on from "Tron: Legacy" was amazing. The animation is some of the best I've seen on television, and the stories were surprisingly complex and well thought out. Sadly, it wasn't enough. And it seems that after a while, the Mouse got tired of promoting it, eventually relegating it to a late time slot when it wasn't expected to succeed, just wither and die like a vine with no sunlight.
Perhaps if the DVD/Blu-Ray sales are good enough, or the showings on Netflix and other places get enough viewers it could be brought back. Not likely, but possible (ala: Family Guy). Then there is the chance that maybe a straight-to-DVD film could be made? Maybe a series of them even, so they could tie up the loose ends and flesh out the world some more? It's Hollywood, anything could happen, nothing could happen.
Here is a cool montage of the show/series that you might find interesting.
The entire Comic-Con panel for the show from last year, or the sizzle reel if you just want to see that.
An interview the Hollywood Reporter did with Bruce Boxleitner.
And then there are all these interviews with the cast and crew.
Disney XD released the first episode, "Beck's Beginning" free for all to see last year, and it's pretty good if you haven't seen it.
And if you care to give it a try, there's always a petition you can sign to let the Suits know that you care.
But the Grid will survive, and in a couple years we may take another trip there...
