The Making of Tron: Legacy HD
I really enjoyed this film. Disney has allowed the Tron DVD to go out of print. I'm guessing they're going to release it along side Tron: Legacy. Perhaps even as a Blu-Ray combo pack.
I have to say though, that I was kind of disappointed in Digital Domain's work on Clu and the younger Flynn. They did a much better job on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and that came out in 2008. They paid much more attention to the subtleties and nuance of human expression in Button than they appeared to have on Tron and they used basically the same techniques and technology.
I was pleasantly surprised by Cillian Murphy's uncredited performance as Edward Dillinger Jr. Edward Dillinger Sr. was the main antagonist in the original Tron. The ambiguity of the fate of the Tron program certainly leaves the possibility open for a another sequel. I wouldn't mind seeing a showdown between Sam, Quorra, Tron and whatever avatar or program is used by Dillinger--and portrayed by Murphy of course. I'm reasonably sure they could find a way to resurrect Kevin Flynn as well.
