After TRON: Legacy landed with a thud, I've found it difficult to care about where the story goes from here. However, Disney still believes in their black-and-neon franchise and they're moving forward with the new animated series TRON: Uprising. The series will air on Disney XD in summer 2012 and cover the events between the original TRON and Legacy. A teaser trailer for the series has gone online and if you loved TRON: Legacy, then you'll probably love this too. It has light cycles and stuff. More promising is an upcoming remix of TRON: Legacy's outstanding score. Pitchfork reports that Disney will release Tron: Legacy R3CONFIGUR3D on April 5th and it will feature M83, Photek, Moby, Com Truise, and others remixing Daft Punk's score. The remix soundtrack is available to buy in various special editions on the score's official website.
