Tron: Legacy – The game has changed

Tron Legacy

Tron Legacy is probably the most awaited movie of 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.

The previous movie, Tron, is about a hacker that is literally abducted into the world of a computer
and forced to participate in gladiatorial games where his only chance of escape is with the help of a
heroic security program. The film, was considered groundbreaking, has inspired several individuals
in numerous ways. And on January 12, 2005, it was announced that Disney hired screenwriters Brian
Klugman and Lee Sternthal to write a sequel to Tron, and in 2008 director Joseph Kosinski negotiated to
develop and direct the sequel.

In the new sequel to Tron, entitled Tron: Legacy, Jeff Bridges reprises his role as Kevin Flynn and Bruce
Boxleitner also reprises his role as Alan Bradley and Tron. New entry Garrett Hedlund, portrays Flynn’s
now-adult son, Sam.

The other cast members include Olivia Wilde, Beau Garrett, Michael Sheen and John Hurt.
The movie will start off where the previous Tron ended. Sam Flynn(a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted
by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn a man once known as the world’s leading
video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the abandoned Flynn’s
Arcade—that could have only come from his father—he finds himself pulled into a world where Kevin
has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra, father and son embark on
a life-or-death journey across a visually-stunning digital universe—created by Kevin himself—which
has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons, and landscapes and a
ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.

After Disney announced to produce the sequel hiring Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal, fans eagerly
waited for preview of the movie. Three years later, in 2008, at San Diego Comic-Con, a preliminary
teaser trailer (labeled as TR2N and directed by Joseph Kosinski) was shown as a surprise to convention
guests. The teaser trailer featured Jeff Bridges reprising his role as an aged Kevin Flynn as well as the
yellow Program identical to Flynn’s earlier program Clu, seen in the first movie.

One year later, the current titled was decided. 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.” At Comic-Con 2009, a new
vehicle appears called a “Light Runner,” a two-seat version of the light cycle. It is said to be very fast, and has the unique ability to go off the grid on its own power. We also get a glimpse at Kevin Flynn’s own
cycle, a “Second Generation Light Cycle” designed in 1989 by Flynn and “rumor has it it’s still the fastest
thing on the grid.” It incorporates some of the look of both films.

In April 2009 filming became in Vancouver. The entire movie was shot in 3D. The film will be presented
in IMAX 3D and Disney Digital 3D. The film will also be released with D-BOX motion code in select

Daft Punk composed the film score and also star in movie as two MP3 Programs (the equivalent of disc
jockeys) at the End of Line Club.
A video game will be released entitled Tron: Evolution soon after the movie is released.
Believe it or not C readers, Tron: Legacy will first be released in our beloved country! We will be seeing it before the USA, Germany, UK, Russia and many other countries! So make sure to watch the first movie Tron, as Tron: Legacy promised to be spectacular. A masterpiece.
