TRON transfer: Olivia Wilde returns to the Grid to reprise Legacy film role in TV’s Uprising

Thursday’s new episode of TRON: Uprising will feature the voice talents of Olivia Wilde, who played the refugee program Quorra in the CGI-enhanced flesh in 2010’s TRON: Legacy.

The episode “Isolated” sees the “Renegade” Beck (Elijah Wood), a young program who is trying to rally the denizens of the Grid against oppression by channeling the lost hero Tron, crash land with his enemy Paige on a remote island. Here we learn of Paige’s earlier encounter with Quorra, a “miracle” program and last survivor of the ISO purge that led to the events in Legacy. Read on for Disney XD’s official description, and head over to Airlock Alpha for an expanded post on this episode and its ramifications.

“Isolated” – After making a daring theft for a valuable data cube from General Tesler’s base, Beck, as The Renegade, escapes on his light jet over the Sea of Simulation. Paige engages The Renegade in an aerial dogfight and the two nemeses crash on a remote island. Upon discovering the island is disintegrating into the sea, the two foes must call a temporary truce and are forced to work together on a plan to survive. These unfolding events cause Paige to reflect on her personal history and the life she led before turning into a soldier of the Occupation. Paige reveals she once knew the program Quorra (voiced by Olivia Wilde, “TRON: Legacy”) who was on the run from the Occupation and hid in Paige’s hometown, in a new episode of “TRON: Uprising,” THURSDAY, JULY 5 (8:00-8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD.
