One of the biggest suprises at this year's San Deigo Comic Convention was Disney's reveal of Tron 2, or TR2N. The trailer of the long rumored movie was shown after the panel about the remake of Race to Witch Mountain.

Frist off, since when does the number 2 pass of as a replacement for the letter o? I don't mind it, but isn't that stretching the replacement trend?

Secondly, this trailer presents a couple of very interesting ideas that fans will be no doubt be debating until more information is released. I was shocked to see Jeff Bridges return as Kevin Flynn, proving that this will not be a campy sequel (ala Herbie:Fully Loaded) The Light Cycles were updated very nicely. I wonder what technology then are using for Clu (aka the younger Kevin Flynn) Could they be using computer animation to replicate the face?

All in all, I'm glad to see Disney taking this film seriously. Tron is known as a milestone in computer animation, the film that inspired John Lasseter to push the limits of animation. All things considered, this looks like it will be a worthy addition to the Tron Legacy.
