Stock in Tron — elevated in value over the years thanks to the forgiving nature of nostalgia — took a dive after the release of Tron: Legacy. But Disney isn’t giving up on the property, and is moving full speed ahead with an animated series that explores the Grid, aka the digital world at the core of the two films. A good idea, as animation could turn out to be the ideal medium in which to explore the hidden corners of the Grid.

It is directed by Charlie Bean, Joseph Kosinski and Sean Bailey, and is written by Tron: Legacy writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.
