Disney has finally released the teaser trailer for Tron: Legacy, the long awaited sequel to the 1982 cult classic Tron. The film stars recent Oscar winner Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Bruce Boxleitner, James Frain, Beau Garrett, and Michael Sheen.
I wrote up a detailed description of the teaser trailer a few weeks back and tried to give my best recap from memory. Needless to say, I was wrong with about 40% of it. My biggest mistake was thinking Michael Sheen was the red suit: it’s actually CLU 2; a younger version of Kevin Flynn (Bridges). Director Joseph Kosinski recently did a Q & A session for Legacy and let slip two very interesting tibits: Jeff Bridges would be digitally de-aged to appear as his younger self in the movie. Bruce Boxleitner will be going through a similar process showing up as TRON himself.
What’s cooler than this teaser trailer? The fact that it’s a just a teaser trailer and that we can expect an even longer one before the movie premieres this winter!
The trailer (which is available for download here) is currently playing in 3D with Alice in Wonderland.
TRON: Legacy hits theatres December 17, 2010.
