Tron: Legacy is a science fiction film scheduled for release in 2010. It is a sequel to the 1982 film Tron. Joseph Kosinski makes his feature film directorial debut with Tron: Legacy, while the previous film director, Steven Lisberger, returns as a producer. Jeff Bridges reprises his role as Kevin Flynn, and Bruce Boxleitner his roles as Alan Bradley and Tron, while Garrett Hedlund portrays Flynn's now-adult son, Sam. The other cast members include Olivia Wilde, Beau Garrett, Michael Sheen and John Hurt. At over twenty-eight years, this film marks the longest gap between a live-action film and its theatrical sequel in Hollywood history. According to the latest trailer, the film will be presented in Digital 3D, IMAX 3D and RealD 3D.

The movie was also revealed during the recent San Diego Comic Con where the popular Light Cycle was unveiled.

8 Minutes worth of TRON LEGACY was shown during the Comi Con too.

It was funny that they showed the scenes from Simpsons, Family Guy, Robot Chicken, etc. where they parodied TRON.

And here's the 2 recent trailers:

This is old news that has been floating around for a while now. And personally, I can't bring myself to see it. Tron was like the only good Disney movie (to me, anyways), and it should have stayed as a one-shot.

The new motorcycle does not look the same as the ones from the first movie (I wonder if that is intentional or not), and this movie is made with that crappy, extra-fake looking CGI called Disney Digital 3D. Plus, the stories and plots of Disney movies have never felt deep or compelling to me, so I am worried about this new movie.

Well, thanks but being based in Asia, I've only gotten to see what is out there currently through news about the Comic Con. I thought it would still be awesome, even for me who wasn't even born when the 1st movie was shown, I only saw excerpts of it. I like the sinister feel to the sequel though.

Have you not SEEN any of the trailers? The 30 year old Kurt Russel looks AMAZING!! Not to mention on an effects heavy movie, they'll be working on all the effects right up until release.

That's what I said after seeing the trailer to TRON Legacy, thinking "man, if the sequel to TRON looks like this, I wonder what the ORIGINAL ONE was like!"... and then I watched it... and regretted it.

Why were you expecting something on par with what can be done today, when the original movie was made in 1982?

When I watched the original Tron a couple years ago, my mind was blown at how good the effects were for back then.
Everyone needs to watch it at one point. Or at least before they watch legacy of course.

Well that is mainly due to the limited amount CGI used, most of the effects used draw more from traditional animation. I am actually a little dissappointed with what when have seen so far. I hope that at least part of the film takes place in a section that wasn't "upgraded" that matches the original film in visuals.

I don't know, it kinda made sense that it was all new considering how technology has grown (and by this I mean in general). Thats how I think of it anyways.

That was my thought to. The computer world has upgraded since we last saw it almost 30 years ago.
I get that, but it still looks overdone yet underwhelming. Tron stands out because it pushed the techniques and technology of it's day to the limit, creating a very distinct style that stands the test of time. Legacy while it's graphics are good, they really don't push any boundaries and it comes off as generic version of Tron.

^ But you have to put yourself on the shoes of people back then who are not even aware of concepts such as The Matrix, Lawnmower Man, etc.

I agree, we better cut some slack to a movie which was created during the start of the techno age... And I wasn't even born then. :thumbs:

I saw a preview at Disneyland a couple weeks ago that literally had me drooling. If my work wasn't so insanely crazy in December, I'd be doing a midnight showing of it. :thumbs:
