Tron 2 info revealed
Posted by JPX
From slashfilm, Disney finally revealed the title to the Tron sequel at the Disney 3D panel at Comic-Con 2009 — TRON Legacy. Jeff Bridges explains that the title is in reference to the story’s theme: “It’s basically a story about a son’s search for his father. It was also revealed that Tron Legacy will be released in both Digital Disney 3D (old news) and IMAX 3D (new news).
Disney surprised nearly everyone by premiering a teaser trailer for the project (which was actually a test created to convince Disney not make the film) at last year’s Comic Con. The footage was easily the most talked about thing of last year’s con. The Tron crew returned to Hall H this year, but unfortunately weren’t able to live up to their last appearance. That is not to say that what we saw of the film was not impressive, it is just they didn’t have a lot to show since the film just wrapped production and they have a year of post production ahead of them.
“And the first Tron, when we made it in 81, there was no internet,” explained Jeff Bridges. “Cell phones were things you carried around in a suit case, and what you saw was so new and fresh, and the same thing is true with this one.”
Disney has released an official plot synopsis:
TRON is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (GARRETT HEDLUND), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (JEFF BRIDGES), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (OLIVIA WILDE), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
