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.

When Sam bends down to pick up the quarter after it falls out of the coin return slot of the TRON video game, we see the side view of the cabinet for the "Discs of TRON" video game, which was the sequel for the original TRON video game. Beneath the logo for Discs of TRON, the Bally/Midway logo is seen, instead of the ENCOM logo, which was the in-movie distributor of the TRON video game. See more
