A sequel for cult movie Tron was rumored to be in preparation for years now, and today Walt Disney Pictures has finally revealed a few tidbits of information about the reboot of the “virtual reality film”. It will simply be called Tron (and not Tron 2, Tron 2.0 or “Tr2n”) and we’ll be able to see some footage very soon.
Disney said they will show a 3D clip from the movie during the Comic-Con in San Diego on July 23. The poster above is from the first movie, which was made back in 1982 (and has aged pretty well).
This is the official synopsis for the Tron reboot:
“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.”
