At some point earlier this year, it was announced that Disney was working on a 3D sequel to Tron. At the time, I thought someone had posted the story around these parts but doing a search, it looks like we skipped this one – may have something to do with the fact that it’s an unnecessary sequel.
The talks of the project died down for a few weeks but it looks like it’s hot topic for conversation again. Turns out the Disney folks and Jeff Bridges (yeah, he’s back for number two) showed up at Comic-Con with some new footage from the film which, by all accounts, blew the crowd away. Now Richard over at Filmstalker has found a clip of the footage shown to the crowd. It’s a bit crooked and from far, far way with the occasional black out but the bits we see certainly suggest this could be good. I just hope they change the name because Tr2n is just plain dumb.
Update: Disney is apparently kicking ass at removing this everywhere. Here’s where I found it today. Probably will be down by this afternoon though: Gizmododo (thanks to Ty Webb for the tip).
