Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore and Pee-Wee Herman set for Tron TV series

Disney has officially given the greenlight to "Tron: Uprising" an upcoming animated series that will feature the voices of Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Paul "Pee-Wee Herman" Reubens, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Lance Henricksen and Bruce Boxleitner. The full series order is in addition to the animated "micro-series" that will debut in the fall of 2011.

It's unclear exactly how "Uprising" fits into the world of TRON: LEGACY but the film's writers, Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, as well as co-producer Justin Springer are involved as producers. In the series, Wood will star as Beck, a kid who "leads a revolution inside the Grid's computer world."

If you're excited about this news, I hate to break it to you but you're going to have to wait. The series isn't expected to debut (on the Disney XD channel) until summer of 2012.

A clip from the series was shown at a Disney press conference yesterday but sadly hasn't made its way online yet. Stay tuned and we'll have pics and video for you ASAP.

when does the new pee-wee herman movie come out?

This is cool, but why would Disney wait so long to get the series going? The movie comes out this Christmas.

You know it's funny, I never really considered "Tron" or "The Black Hole" to be for kids exactly. They seemed to be aiming for a much older demographic with their content.

This is cool and all, but Pee Wee Herman can go fuck himself.

I'm with you, man. I'll be honest and say that I want to love this guy due to all the great childhood memories, but he's just plain fucking gross. Yet ANOTHER example of a celebrities demon's getting swept under a rug for our mere entertainment dollar. +1

Come to think of it, I'm surprised it wasn't already an animated series. EVERYBODY had a cartoon in the 80's.

Unless we count Reboot. That was pretty close.
