Fictional within the world of the movie. A video game character... which the rest of the sentence says.

Wait. Ares "crosses over from the world of videogames to planet Earth"? That doesn't sound like anything anyone would want from a Tron movie.

Tron: Legacy wasn't perfect but at least it attempted to elevate the subject matter with ponderings on digital existentialism, the tenuous relationship between virtual and actual existence (whether or not there is any difference, etc.), and so forth. You had all the slambang action and visual effects and etc. and such as, but it tried to be something beyond a big flashy empty-headed blockbuster. It didn't quite stick the landing, but it was interesting and good enough, I think.

From everything I've read about this project, it looks like poo.

But, it'll be kinda like Barbie! Or the 90's Brady Bunch!

Unless they're going to write some kind of massive, catastrophic spill-over 'event' with the game world leaking into ours, the thought of Leto and whomever else flitting around the real world in Tron suits and riding Ducatis doesn't exactly hold much appeal.

Well, if they get Gillian Anderson in some skintight leather, it'd be like old times from that classic FHM photoshoot she did in the 90s. I have not kept up with her, so I don't know if she still has nice cakes.

An artificial intelligence wants to be real? Pinocchio and Gene Roddenberry would like a word with you.

She made waves for her vulva dress at some recent awards ceremony and still looked pretty good. Not sure about skintight leather good but I still think she's pretty.

Leto huh? Seems like a really bad choice for a high budget film that’s historically got a limited market but I’m sure the fine folks at Disney know what they’re doing ….

Speaking of Tron: Legacy, it seems Joseph Kosinski is working on a "remaster" of that movie. Given the advances in de-aging VFX, it'd be cool to see him fix up Clu.

I'm kind of curious why Disney sees fit to continue this franchise. While I personally enjoy it, they've never been huge performers. Also, no Daft Punk is a major drawback.

They didn’t rebrand it. It was built from scratch and modeled after the original version in Shanghai Disneyland.

This is probably the last chance to make Tron into a successful franchise. I liked both movies a lot, the animated series wasn't bad, although I didn't like the animation style. With Jeff Bridges being back, I'm getting excited.

I've been a big Tron fan since the first movie came out. I'm ok with this one being the final Tron movie if it ties up the story nicely.

“I’m heading off this Saturday to play a part in the third installment of the ‘Tron’ story,” Bridges said. “Jared Leto is the star of this third one. I’m really anxious to work with him. I’ve admired his work.”

“Tron” is best known for pioneering the use of computer generated imagery, which was used to create the digital world of a video game after Bridges’ character, Kevin Flynn, is zapped inside one. In the sequel, Flynn is trapped inside a much more sophisticated version of the game by his digital double, Clu, who was also played by Bridges and digitally de-aged using CGI.

“I didn’t like the way I looked in it,” Bridges said. “I felt like I looked more like Bill Maher than myself. It was kind of bizarre.”

Bridges added that he’d heard that “there’s going to be even less AI stuff” in “Tron: Ares” and that the production is using more “practical sets” for the new project. “There are beautiful sets that I’ve seen,” he said. “So we’ll see.”

Now I'm officially excited.

I hope they use this as an excuse to re-release Tron:Legacy with the fixed de-aging of Flynn that they supposedly did.

Me too!

Apparently Joseph Kosinski said in January the 4K remaster is coming... hopefully that also means they will fix the de-aging. Is it too much to hope for a 4K remaster of the original too???

They'll probably only put the new 4K version on Disney+ and not on disc.
