Official ‘Tron 2’ Teaser Trailer Is Now Here To See!
  |  @   |  

Disney has released the first teaser trailer for Tron 2, which is now officially titled Tron Legacy. The new title isn’t the best title in the world, but certainly a step up from other possible titles like Tr2n, Tron 2.0, and Tron.

The teaser trailer is actually the special footage that was shown at Comic Con last year, and is not even actually from the movie. The footage was created by director Joseph Kosinski to show how great today’s technologies could lend themselves to a Tron sequel. Disney obviously agreed and the rest is what you’d call history. No word yet on if this footage is so good that the whole movie was shot the same way, or if this is just a small taste of what the finished project will be. Kosinski is also attached to direct another reboot of a popular old title: Logan’s Run.

SDCC 09: New Title, Concept Art & Footage From ‘Tron 2’
  |  @   |  

At last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Disney gave a sneak peek of Tron 2, stating that I’d be a year before we see anymore footage (see SDCC 08: Surprise Sneak Peek at Disney’s ‘Tron 2’).

Well, it’s a year later now and Tron 2 was back at the Con for Disney’s 3D panel, this time with yet another new name (remember the whole Tr2n phase?): Tron Legacy.

Star Jeff Bridges, who appeared in the original 1982 Tron film, made an appearance at the panel, explaining that the upcoming sequel was “a story about a son’s search for his father.” Bridges character, Kevin Flynn, returns in Tron Legacy as the father; his son is Sam Flynn, played by Garrett Hedlund, who was also on the panel along with co-star Olivia Wilde, director Joseph Kosinski, and producers Sean Bailey and Steve Lisberger (director of the original film).

The audience was treated to the same footage that made a big splash at last year’s Con, though this time it seemed more polished. There was also a non-3D clip shown of Sam going back to Flynn’s Arcade (see full footage description below), which takes place in the real world (not the game world).

While the film finished principal photography last week, the filmmakers still have a lot to do before the film is released next year, so the filmmakers offered up some motion image test footage, as well as concept art of the film’s digital gaming world. Check out all of the concept art images here below.

New ‘Tron 2’ Story Details & Info
  |  @   |  

Aint it Cool News has received some news out of Canada where Tron 2 is currently filming. So far we’ve heard a lot of stuff here and there but nothing has really be solid, including the various titles we’ve heard. This source is expected to be fairly reliable, and they seem to have great info, so here it is!

Right off the bat — the title. It looks like it won’t be called Tr2n or Tron 2 or just Tron as we’ve heard; it’s looking like it will get the colon treatment, like Tron: Our Bikes Are More Awesome Than Yours or Tron: The Virtual Beginning of the End Begins Again Soon. This is good news, as the titles we had heard so far weren’t very good, so hopefully they dream up something cool.

The movie will apparently begin in 1989, where Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) is living well by selling toys and novelties based on his experiences in the first movie (Recognizer night lights?). For no reason at all, Flynn then disappears completely, leaving behind his seven-year old son, Sean.

Some years or so later, Sean is now in his twenties (I’m assuming that this will be the role of Garrett Hedlund [Read: Garrett Hedlund Cast As Lead In ‘Tron’]). He goes to meet Tron himself — Alan Bradley (Bruce Boxleitner), who took over Flynn’s company Encom. Bradley gives him some information which may lead Sean to his father, so he takes it and goes on his search.

Garrett Hedlund Cast As Lead In ‘Tron’ Sequel
  |  @   |  

After making a few supporting role casting announcements, Disney has announced that they’ve cast Garrett Hedlund in the lead of their upcoming sequel, Tron.

Hedlund is best known as Achilles‘ cousin in Troy as well as the non-Mark Wahlberg white brother in Four Brothers. He was also in the movie version of Friday Night Lights. Hedlund beat out other potential candidates for this second Tron film, such as Ryan Gosling and Chris Pine.

The story will follow a man who — much like the first movie — gets stuck inside a computer world, where he will retrace the steps of the first movie’s main character.
