I remember when the Laserdisc release came out 12 years ago and I realized just how crappy the VHS transfer of Tron was—the Laserdisc had gorgeous colors and incredible details. I even pull out my DVD copy every year or so and give it another watching just for fun. I would occasionally peek at the Internet Movie Database to see if a sequel was in the works (partially in excitement for new Tron action, partially in fear of yet another rape of my childhood, but I never found anything.
Well, it looks like the long-rumored "Tron 2" or "TR2N" is actually being made, and a grainy crappy copy of a teaser leaked from Comic-Con this weekend all but made me explode because, well, it looks awesome:
Let's see what we've got here:
- Light Cycles: Check.
- Kick-Ass CGI animation: Check.
- Jeff Bridges: Hells yeah check.
- Plot: Maybe?
And now I have to wait until 2011 to see it. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!
Dear Disney: Please hurry. Also, please don't screw it up. KTHXBAI.
