The more we see of the new animated series Tron: Uprising, the more it looks like it could be the epic journey into the Grid we've always wanted—and the latest trailer looks even cooler than the first.

The storyline seems top-notch, and the vast, gritty take on the Grid looks pretty awesome.

Set between the original 1982 Tron and the 2010 sequel Tron: Legacy, Uprising fills in the gaps and shows exactly what was going on in the Grid during all those missing years. The star-studded voice cast includes Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Lance Henriksen, Paul Reubens and the original Tron himself: Bruce Boxleitner.

The Disney XD series is set to premiere on Thursday, June 7, though a half-hour prelude dubbed "Beck's Beginning" will air on May 18 as a sneak peek.

For more info, check out the official synopsis for "Beck's Beginning":

Tron: Uprising introduces Beck, a young mechanic living in Argon City, a growing metropolis in a far off corner of the grid that has just been occupied by General Tesler, a henchman of the notorious Clu. After his best friend Bodhi is ruthlessly derezzed by Clu's army, Beck seeks justice for his lost friend and launches a crusade against the regime. His rebellion captures the attention of Tron, the greatest warrior The Grid has ever known, who sees the potential in Beck and trains him to be his successor. Labeled with the moniker of The Renegade, Beck sparks a revolution to fight for the freedom of The Grid.
