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.

Aw, yeah. That's a dope poster right there. From the look of it, I think it's Flynn's son and Clu goin' at it. Those new light cycles are sick. Definitely looking forward to this movie.

The monorail light cycle wraps look wicked. Nice idea. Will be very cool if we see Disneyland with these too and arcades in disneyland/disneyworld? Yikes. $5 a game anybody? lol

Brilliant!!!! Now how about a full blown ride!

I still remember visiting Disneyland back in 1984, just after TRON hit theaters and made it huge, back then Disney had set aside a small arcade space full of the Tron games. It was the most wicked and surreal experience to actually play the games from the movie. When I got back to Australia they were limited and I only remember tracking down one arcade machine in a multi-plex in Sydney. Talk about history reliving itself!! I can not wait to get my hands on the Tron games that'll be released once this movie hits theatres - they're gonna be mad!

I cant wait for Tron, and I love those monorail designs. I just have a problem with cross promotion. That stuff is really pitiful.

Monorails are Photoshopped ... poorly. Cool idea, though.

Looking forward to seeing the monorails in November when I am there

Would be cool if arcades and coin ups came back 🙂

I agree with #9. As soon as I looked at those pictures I thought they looked fake. The thing that cinches it is that the trees in the backgrounds of those "two different" monorails are EXACTLY the same. The design would be cool, but there's no way those are real photos.

i think this is how the story goes : Clu turns rogue somehow and has entrapped his User Kevin Flynn..and Sam with have to battle Clu for his dad's freedom.

I've been on the Tron "ride" at Disney Land. Do they still have that thing? It was a very slow moving mini monorail. It looked like you were falling into the computer world and going really fast. If you looked at the ground though you noticed you were going really slow.
