Yup, it’s basically the cleaned up version of the teaser shown at last year’s Comic-Con, but holy crap… I’m in nerdvana over this one, kids. I do so love me some Tron, and this teaser pretty much captures every thing I’d want in a sequel/revisit. Cap’n posted Light Cycle footage yesterday (and I’m already mentally clearing the space on my bookshelf for that little orgasm of design), so now all I need is a light disc. I am deeply relieved that the title has evolved from the almost insultingly bad TR2N to Tron: Legacy, but I am a little sad that this one will probably feature far less Cindy Morgan than I’d like.
Let me illustrate a point: To this day, Discs of Tron is one of my favorite arcade games of all time. I’m fully aware at how ridiculous (and in some cases flat-out terrible) the original Tron film really is, but it’s one of those films that has just carved out a permanent cool slot in my brain. The design, the score, the entire concept… It’s one of those films that I can gleefully watch at any time. Hell, beyond the washed out look of the human faces, the graphics still look pretty effin’ amazing.
So yeah, this is one revisit I can get behind.
