Behold the title treatment for the upcoming Tron: Legacy. At today’s Disney panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, Jeff Bridges spoke briefly stating that it was the story of a son’s search for his father. “The first TRON… when we made that in ’81 there was no internet. Cell phones were these big things you carried around in a suitcase! So what you saw was so new and fresh… I can guarantee you’ll get the same kind of pop with this one!”

A bunch of images of concept art from yesterday’s panel have gone up, as well as video of an a recreation of Flynn’s Arcade, (with working Space Paranoids arcade games) and an exciting reveal of the new Lightcycle, aswell asĀ  hint of the new score Daft Punk is producing for the film. Alas, Disney are still proving to be douchebags and refusing to release that test footage they showed last year in higher quality. It’s all over Youtube, though. If you haven’t yet, I suggest you seek it out.

Here’s hoping Disney will stop being selfish dicks and release some of this awesome concept art in higher resolution. (I mean, seriously. Why make concept art and not show anyone?) Former commercial director Joseph Kosinski is directing the feature which brings back Jeff Bridges as genius game designer Kevin Flynn, Garrett Hedlund as his son Sean, and a cast that includes Bruce Boxleitner, Olivia Wilde, Beau Garrett, Karl Urban and John Hurt. The film also includes a younger version of the Jeff Bridges character (via CGI) as his Computer World alter ego, CLU, who has now gone rogue and is remaking the computer world in the imagine of what he believes to be “right.”
