I have to admit, when they first announced a Tron sequel at last year’s Comic Con, I was intrigued but not really all that sure how well the concept would work 28 years later. It’s true that digital graphics and computer animation are a thousand times more advanced than they were back then, but the entire idea of getting sucked into a computer’s grid-like world now just seems dated somehow.
Well, nevermind, you can forget all that because the first trailer for Tron 2 (now titled Tron Legacy) has finally been unveiled online, and it has completely blown me away! I guess this is basically the same footage that they Comic Con attendees got to see last year, and it’s just a single scene showing off an intense light cycle duel. But man, the look and feel of this is absolutely gorgeous… I can only imagine how it will look in 3-D. The movie is supposed to be out sometime in 2010, and I, for one, can’t wait. Check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
