Do you want some Tron sequel spoilers?
The childhood dreams of geeks like me from all parts of this Earth are coming true, as the much anticipated sequel to TRON seems to be making some serious progress up in Vancouver. Things are going so well, that an inside source just couldn't keep some awesome plot points secret any longer, as AICN got an amazing scoop! You have been warned...there are most definitely some juicy details in here, although, i don't think it's much more than you'd see in a trailer, so...your choice. If you want to know what's up though...just click keep reading!
The title will almost certainly NOT be TRON 2 or TR2N. Possibly something with a colon - TRON: ________.
The story takes place approximately 25 years after the original.
The movie starts in 1989. Kevin Flynn (Bridges) has created some of the world's top selling games based on his Game Grid challenges in the first film, and has marketed the hell out of what he saw there (action figures, Recognizer night lights, yadda yadda yadda).
Flynn has a seven year old son named Sean.
Flynn disappears, leaving behind his son.
Alan Bradley (Boxleitner) takes over Flynn's company (ENCOM).
Jump forward in time: Sean is now twenty something.
Alan Bradley has info that leads Sean to look for Flynn.
Search takes Sean to Flynn's old arcade - mothballed.
Into the computer world goes Sean.
There's a CLU character (Flynn's computer alter-ego from the first film).
Flynn has programmed CLU to run around and make a better computer world, but CLU's gone corrupt and is creating his own interpretation of that perfect world. This is why CLU (young Bridges) is being such a punk-ass in that Comic Con footage we saw.
CLU has it out for a kind of program called ISOs & wants to eradicate them.
The ISOs believe Sean Flynn is the one who will free them from CLU's belligerence.
Somewhere in the computer world, the real Kevin Flynn is whizzing around in a classic Light Cycle. Will he help in the battle against CLU?
Light Jets have jet walls, too.
Light Cycles versus Light Jets.
Big Disc battle!
Bridges going all out for this role. Embracing it. Fans will go gaa gaa.
