Although I was never very good at the arcade game, I am a huge fan of Disney’s 1982 sci-fi classic “Tron.” In fact, when I learned that the studio was actually lensing the long-awaited follow-up, I may have blown a synapse or two in the process. Disney has finally announced that the sequel, “Tron Legacy,” will make its theatrical debut on December 17th, 2010. Additionally, the film will be released in both Disney Digital 3D and IMAX 3D, for those of you who like all their movies crisp, clean, and huge. And while this date sounds extremely far away, I have no doubt it will be worth the wait. That’s blind devotion for you.
Here’s the synopsis from IMDb:
Sam Flynn, the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn, 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, 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.
If you’ve yet to experience the trailer, I strongly suggest you do so immediately. If it doesn’t give you goosebumps, schedule a doctor’s appointment post-haste.
