BURBANK, Calif. -- “Tron” fans worldwide are being invited to step into the Grid of the anticipated sequel, “Tron: Legacy.”
Walt Disney Pictures is hosting “Tron Night” on Thursday, where fans in 48 countries can see 23 minutes of footage in IMAX 3-D for free. Disney employees also got an early look at the film Thursday at screenings on the studio lot in Burbank.
The selected scenes show Sam Flynn, played by Garrett Hedlund, accidentally discovering the digital world where his father disappeared decades earlier.
Flynn is outfitted with a body-hugging light suit and dropped into a high-stakes Frisbee-type battle where the loser is shattered into bits.
Other scenes show light cycles updated from the original 1982 film, a light-up dune buggy, and Jeff Bridges playing two characters, including a younger version of himself.
