Disney Unveils Their 'ComiTRON' Plans for Comic-Con 2010!

Tron Booth at E3

Disney is the first studio to announce some of their official plans for the San Diego Comic-Con this year. Returning for an unprecedented third year to the fans and convention that "started it all," Disney is pleased to present a special, inside look at its upcoming Tron Legacy plans for Comic-Con. The official Tron panel will be held in Hall H on Thursday, July 22nd starting at 11:15AM with appearances and a Q&A from the actors and filmmakers as well as "exclusive glimpses of the film." They'll also have a booth on the showfloor. FS.net will be there covering the panel live and following whatever Tron madness Disney decides to unleash.

It was at Comic-Con in 2008 that the vision of a 21st century Tron was born - that's where Disney unveiled a secret VFX test trailer that fans went crazy for, allowing this highly anticipated sequel to get the greenlight. Director Joe Kosinski says: "We set out to stay true to the characters, the vehicles, and the world established in the first film—then show its evolution. When it took off with the fans, we knew we were in the right place. Because they’ve been key to getting this story told, we’re back to keep them involved, and excited to finally present actual footage from the film to the audience that made it all possible." I, for one, can't freakin' wait!

That awesome Tron photo above actually comes from the E3 showfloor this year and is probably part of the same display that will be rebuilt on the Comic-Con showfloor. In addition to their panel in Hall H, Disney has announced that the Tron booth (located at #3712) will give fans a first look at the all new Tron Legacy inspired merchandise launching this fall, including toys (like these things), electronics, collectibles, apparel, accessories, publishing and the Tron: Evolution video game from Disney Interactive Studio. I want all of it! Stay tuned for our own coverage of the 2010 Comic-Con starting late next month. See you all in San Diego!

There's no way they can top the scavenger hunt leading up to the grand opening of Flynn's Arcade.

I agree with 3, will Bob Stencil be returning or is he in postpartum depression therapy after Lost ended?
