Tron: Legacy is a 2010 American science fiction film produced by Walt Disney Pictures released on December 16, 2010. It is a sequel to the 1982 film Tron. Joseph Kosinski makes his feature film directorial debut with Tron: Legacy, while the previous film director, Steven Lisberger, returns as a producer.
In 1989 (seven years after the first film), Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), an innovative software engineer and the CEO of ENCOM International, tells his seven-year-old son Sam (Garret Hedlund) about a new “digital frontier” he has created called The Grid, a virtual domain existing inside his computer. Kevin tells Sam of the two programs helping him in his endeavor, Tron and Clu; Tron keeps The Grid secure, while Clu is tasked with creating the perfect system. One night, Kevin departs for his office to continue working on the development of his creation, when he mysteriously vanishes.
Sam Flynn (Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Bridges), a man once known as the world’s leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn’s Arcade — a signal that could only come from his father– he finds himself pulled into a digital world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Wilde), father and son embark on a life-or-death journey across a cyber universe — a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.
