During Comic-Con 2008, Disney surprised those in attendance with a special presentation of a trailer for the then untitled Tron sequel (now called Tron Legacy). The footage was shot by director Joseph Kosinski as a test of sorts to prove to Disney he had the correct vision to take on the project. It was shown again today at Comic-Con 2009 and has now been released online, in HD quality, for anyone to watch. Check it out after the jump.
“Tron Legacy” 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.
Tron Legacy will be released sometime in 2010.
