New Tron Legacy Billboard and Disney World Tron Monorails
As we were expecting, Disney has recently replaced the Tron Legacy billboard on display in Los Angeles with this newest photo (seen below in high res). This is the third photo we've seen them put up following the original debut in December. Disney bought a prominently placed billboard located in Century City for a full 12 month run that will be displaying Tron images up until its release this December (the second photo was awesome, too). Considering this is the photo that's following up the debut of the trailer, this is pretty cool to see. I totally love the imagery they've made for Tron Legacy. Plus there's more below - so keep on reading!
In addition to that new billboard, Disney Parks Blog has also revealed the first two photos of the new Tron Legacy lightcycle monorails that will be running around Disney World. These wraps were installed on the monorails partially as a bit of advertising and also because there are some rumors that Disney's theme parks may get a big Tron overhaul (with arcades and themed rides) if Tron Legacy does well enough - and this is the first step in that direction. Both of these photos look pretty damn cool. Just imagine seeing these things ziping through Disney World like they were two actual lightcycles fighting. I wonder if they light up, too?
Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his father's disappearance and is pulled into the digital world of Tron where his father has been living for 25 years.
Tron Legacy is directed by first-time filmmaker Joseph Kosinski. The screenplay was co-written by Adam Horowitz ("Lost"), Richard Jefferies (Blood Tide, Living Hell), Edward Kitsis ("Lost"), and the director of the original movie, Steven Lisberger. This first got the greenlight last year because this early teaser played well at Comic-Con. Disney is bringing Tron Legacy to theaters in 3D starting on December 17th, 2010.
