Earlier this week I had an opportunity to chat with actor Bruce Boxleitner about his participation in this year’s D23 Expo. Boxleitner, one of Hollywood’s enduring leading men, starred as Alan Bradley/Tron in the 1982 original film TRON, reprised his role in the 2010 sequel, Tron: Legacy, and voiced the main character in the video game, Tron: Evolution, which released alongside the movie sequel. He is currently providing his voice for the character of Tron in the upcoming animated series Tron: Uprising. Known to sci-fi fans worldwide, Boxleitner also starred in the hit TV series, Babylon 5, as well as having a four-year run opposite Kate Jackson in Scarecrow and Mrs. King.
In my mind Disney was the place to take Tron, Disney IS animation and the home of magic. Both directors of the films were very tech savvy and were pioneers in the realm of CGI. I look forward to Tron: Uprising and Disney XD’s twist on they type of animation that was in Tron: Legacy. I’m amazed at the whole motion-capture thing as well. – Bruce Boxleitner
