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 20 years. Along with Kevin's loyal confidant Quorra, 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. Meanwhile, the malevolent program CLU, who dominates the digital world, plans to invade the real world and will stop at nothing to prevent their escape. Written by

Did You Know?
As seen in the theatrical trailer, Sam's childhood bedroom features an original 1980s Macintosh computer, toys from the original TRON
(1982), and a poster for The Black Hole
(1979) (another film from the same era as TRON, and a similar Disney foray into science fiction with cutting-edge [at the time] special effects, including computer animation [see trivia for The Black Hole]). Director Joseph Kosinski
's next project is a remake of The Black Hole for Disney. The film also ties into the history of the "TRON" films because originally, for the first film, Disney wanted proof that Steven Lisberger
could not only direct, but proof that the back-lighting effects to have the live action characters glow worked. Disney lent Lisberger and his company props and costumes from "The Black Hole" (which had recently wrapped) to use for their test film. See more
When Sam deactivates the screen saver on the computer hidden in the arcade, we see one window with, among other things, an indication that the machine he's working on is a sun4m. The first sun4ms weren't announced until about 1992, well after the time that Kevin Flynn disappeared. See more
The Grid. A digital frontier. I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer. What did they look like? Ships? motorcycles? Were the circuits like freeways? I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then, one day...

At the beginning of the movie, the title only says "TRON". Not until during the ending credits does the name "Legacy" get included in the title when it reappears. See more
