In addition to previewing a brand new clip from Tron Legacy at Comic-Con this past Thursday, Disney replayed the three-minute teaser reel that debuted at last year’s Comic-Con to a huge ovation. At long last, that same stunning teaser has finally been officially released online.
The teaser footage features a pair of light cycle riders chasing each other in an evolved computer world with much sleeker and streamlined graphics than seen in Disney’s original Tron. When one of the riders is defeated, the other reveals himself with a familiar face.
Tron Legacy stars Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Jeff Bridges and Beau Garrett. Disney is aiming to get it into theaters sometime in 2011 with an updated presentation at Comic-Con in 2010.
Official Tron Legacy Movie Synopsis: Sam Flynn (Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Bridges), 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. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
