Wow, and Wow!! Tron: Legacy

OK, it's 2:55 in the morning, but, this just could not wait! I just saw a teaser trailer for Comic Con on YouTube for a sequel to the Disney film, Tron. What!? Can this be? I was sure that the trailer was a fake, but no, it's 100% real!
OK, I must calm down now, take a breathe and continue. I'm a sci-fi nerd so please forgive my enthusiasm. Trust this excitement is for good reason! The 1982 version of Tron is a cult classic starring Jeff Bridges who is Kevin Flynn, a video game designer who has to try and prove that a big time exec stole his idea. But in this tale, he is sucked into the computers main frame where programs are representations of their writers.
Nonetheless, in this upcoming sequel,
Sam Flynn, the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn, 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.
Starring Olivia Wilde, (House, Year One) Beau Garrett, (Touristas) Garrett Hedlund (Death Sentence, Eragon) I am anxious to see how the story holds up as well as the visual aspect of the movie. You can't forget the classic scenes of the riders on their 'Light Cycles' in the mainframe on that glass-like surface, color block streaming behind them, or Family Guys parody of that exact scene. Well it looks like it has a major upgrade, the special effects look super cool. Woohoo, get excited :P
Coming to theaters December 17th 2010!!
See you there!
