  1. Atari Adventure Square says:

    Great character design.
    I’d go for a comic or animated version of this.

    Pretty faithful to the original look.
    I kinda prefer the brighter costumes to the darker neon approach in TL.

    Since the new movie had less overall brightness in its sets, vehicles and costumes, the 3D effect suffered for lack of depth perspective.

    I wonder if Disney will ever try to post-process the original Tron into 3D?
    Now *that* would make my millenium.

  2. I bet you they will, Atari Adventure Square! I’m wondering if they are keeping a very close eye on how Tron: Uprising is going to do…testing the waters so to speak.
