We just left “The Making of TRON” panel here at Pop Con LA with an interesting tease of a possible event (or events) that may take place in the near future at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. During the laid-back and hilariously entertaining panel, a lively Bruce Boxleitner and Cindy Morgan shared anecdotes from the […]

Disney had some surprises in store for members of the press during their junket for the new animated series “TRON: Uprising” on Saturday, but the studio had one surprise for TRON himself, star Bruce Boxleitner.

Yeah, it’s a commercial for duct tape and it ends with that awkward TRON Guy, but it’s still a clever idea revolving around the TRON light cycles. I’ll take it! At least there’s no RAM in here.
When the news broke that Disney would not be hosting a panel in Hall H this year in San Diego, my dreams of a repeat of the surprise Tron reveal of 2008 were derezzed. And while I still truly believe there will be some sort of TR3N type announcement at Disney’s own D23 Expo in […]

The good news = According to the Twitter account of @ThemeParkOne, there is a strong possibility Disneyland will give its less-than-Orlando / should-have-kept-Carousel-of-Progress “Innoventions” pavilion a “Stark Expo” makeover. He goes as far as claiming that “Mockups, renderings, even costume designs exist at WDI.” With Richard Sherman providing the very retro Disney-esque theme to the […]
When it comes to TRON and the digital world it led to both on and off-screen, there’s no bigger expert than Jay West, a guest writer over the last year for The LA Times’ Hero Complex on all things concerning The Grid. He recently sat down with Steven Lisberger, Joe Kosinksi and Eric Barba (VFX […]

D23 recently uncovered a rare comic strip depicting characters from the original TRON. This comic strip, which was distributed in 1982, tells another tale of Flynn’s adventures into the digital grid.
