The trailer for Tron Legacy, the sequel to the 1982 movie Tron, debuted at the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con. The trailer was shown during a panel with the filmmakers and members of the cast, including Jeff Bridges who reprises his role from the original film.
Concept art from the new film was shown too. The video below is a slide show of the art presented. The accompanying music is by Thomas Bangalter, 1/2 of the music duo, Daft Punk. Daft Punk is on board to write all the music for Tron Legacy.
What is unclear is if Bruce Boxleitner is on board to reprise his original roles from the movie. IMDB says he is only rumored to be in the movie while Boxleitner’s website says he is working on the movie. Also unclear is the year when the film is to be released. IMDB also says the movie is to come out in 2011. Filmakers say 2010.
Steven Lisberger, original writer of Tron, is back on board with the help of Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. Horowitz and Kitsis are also writers and producers of the popular TV series Lost.
So, is Tron Legacy going to get your time and/or your cash when it comes out?
