My biggest relief with Tron is that it's NOT a remake but rather a sequel. Sequels to old classics I can live with, remakes I cannot. I mean, why remake something that is already considered good? Odds are you aren't making it any better.
My only catch with the Tron sequel is that it is named Tron. Come on Disney, can we please find a way to differentiate. I liked Tron 2.0, why not that? But I digress...
Tron Plot Revealed
The good people at Slashfilm have posted an official plot for the Tron sequel. As expected, Disney's expected the new installment to be bigger and better. You know, the usual promises.
Tron is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), 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 (Olivia Wilde), 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.
Walt Disney also claims that Tron will arrive 2011. I admire their confidence, but I wouldn't be surprised if we don't see this one until after 2012.
Tron is expected to open to theaters some time in 2011.
