Did You Know?
Although the 2008 "TR2N" teaser trailer showed that Disney was seriously considering a sequel, the movie had not been "greenlit" at that time. According to director Joseph Kosinski
and producer Sean Bailey
, the teaser served two purposes: to show Disney executives what a TRON sequel might look like (before committing to a feature budget), and to gauge fan interest. If the teaser had failed to generate sufficient fan "buzz", the movie wouldn't have been made. It has also been confirmed that, as the teaser was only a "concept" film, virtually none of the teaser footage will appear in the final film. See more
At the beginning of the film, which takes place in 1989, Flynn is talking to his young son Sam. Flynn did not have a son in the original 1982 film and so Sam should not be more than 6 or 7 years old during this scene, however he is clearly much older (played by Owen Best who was 12/13 when he filmed his scenes).

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...
