    The title of the Tron sequel was announced today at Comic Con - Tron Legacy

    There are two viral sites so far:

    http://www.flynnlives.com

    http://www.homeoftron.com

    and a Facebook page has been established - http://www.facebook.com/Tron

    The new logo on what appears to be a teaser poster:

    From G4's coverage of the Disney panel - a description of the clip that was shown:


    Looks like Disney pulled off one of the more memorable viral events last night at Comic Con. They recreated Flynn's arcade complete with playable Space Paranoids machines and a lifesize lightcycle from the new film.

    I'm blown away they re-created Flynn's Arcade -- Disney really outdid themselves with this one. Here's hoping the new movie lives up to the legacy.

    If that's from last year, I wonder why it didn't leak out before now. In any case, it looks terrific. If that's just proof of concept footage, I can't wait for the finished product.

    I wonder if Tron 2.0 will fit into this. It'd be cool to have a new game with the look of this trailer.

    They need to have some music from Wendy Carlos in there.

    I look forward to this one for sure.

    There have been low-res, blurry versions of this clip available online for the past year now, but this official release of the test footage as a "trailer" marks the first time most of us have seen a high quality version.

    So...I don't know... TRON is part of my childhood, a beloved movie from that time. Ahead of its time technologically, a surprisingly good score, and a plot and acting sufficient to entrance a 10 year old.

    This trailer tugs at my heartstrings, evoking my love of TRON. But taken on its own, doesn't do anything. I watch movies in a post-Matrix and post-Toy Story era. The slow-mo flying through the air flip was done better a decade ago. The stylized CG, beyond cool in the 80s, is passe now.

    My inner child wants to love it. But smells a bit like a crass attempt to get dollars from from 80s-kids.

    I'm willing to give it a chance. I have to see more of it before condemning it; although, it looks like Flynn is going to be the villain in this one. I'm not sure if I like that aspect.

    I hope it's a fun movie. And I hope it has Bit. (But I'm a bit cynical towards it.)

    What gave you that idea?

    From the viral websites, I gather that this movie could be subtitled "The Search for Flynn".

    EDIT: Well I just read the Con transcript. Interesting....

    I watched the clip that was posted here on the thread. You see Flynn looking down from on high while the one cyclist is dematting the other. That scene just gave me the vibe that Flynn could be the villain in the film. I could just be getting the wrong impression. There isn't enough information in the clip to draw any concrete conclusion. It is all just impression.

    I agree that from the clip Flynn seems like he could be the new MCP over the Tron Universe.

    I could see it as being a thing where it appears at first that Flynn is the villain, but really isn't as it turns out. Maybe it's like a Tron universe case of identity theft or something like that.

    The clip was a VFX test created before the film even had a script, so I wouldn't take it as an indication of anything really.

    Not just looking down. Younger Flynn sans beard is the yellow rider. He seems like the villain when he strikes the downed rider who is begging for mercy, but we don't know the context even if it is carried over to the script.

    I just watched it again in the highest resolution and I continue to proclaim it a fantastic trailer.
