TRON Legacy Panel Notes

Posted by at 8:51 pm on July 23, 2010

Yesterday Michael Sheen, Olivia Wilde, Garrett Hedlund, Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner were at Comic-Con 2010.    The ‘Tron Legacy’ panel was one of the hottest of the day.

Patton Oswalt   appeared onstage to moderate. “Welcome, furries!” he announced to the crowd before adding, “Sorry, that’s something I’m doing later.”

He also joked about a viral shirtless Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner knife fight tonight, the secret location of which will soon be revealed.

Hightlights from the Panel

  • Opening 10-min video showed effect of Tron on pop culture, from references and parodies in The Simposons, South Park, Family Guy, Honda Commercials, Daft Punk music, etc.
  • Jeff Bridges plays two characters, Flynn and his avatar within the movie where he looks 35 years old again. Bridges acts with himself in this movie -“ there’s promise to show this during the panel.
  • Hedlund talks about the light suits, repairs and the joy of the real costumes used during filming.
  • Olivia Wilde talks about honor of playing a warrior such as Quorra, the new character she plays in Tron Legacy.
  • Hedlund had to take martial arts training, parkour training and more with the amazing 87eleven stunt team.
  • Michael Sheen talks about living in “false reality” now living in LA (lots of laughter) and about working with Jeff Bridges. He’s shocked at the marketing and fanfare here for Comic-Con.
  • Bruce Boxleitner, the real “Tron” and star of the Babylon 5 is ecstatic about returning to Tron after 27 years. He’s the biggest fan there is and promises this movie will take us to a whole new level.

Opening in  Disney 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on December 17.   Get Ready!!
