TRON: LEGACY Trailer Lights Up The Web...and Today's 'Coming Attractions'

We capped off our 2009 blog with the final teaser poster for Disney's most-anticipated film of the past several years: Tron: LegacyToday, Disney released their first official trailer for Legacy the sequel to their original Tron from 1982. Fresh off his Oscar win Sunday night, Jeff Bridges reprises his role as Kevin Flynn for Legacy, as does Bruce Boxleitner for the role of Alan Bradley. In the original film's 'electronic world,' Boxleitner's Bradley was also Tron  - but whether this aspect of the character continues into Legacy hasn't been revealed to us inquiring dabblers...yet.  Considering a name like 'Legacy,' we're thinking the 'Tron torch' gets passed for this film, probably from the get-go. Newcomer Garrett Hedlund (in the role of Bridges' son, Sam) appears to be the focus - and we bet, the next of the film's namesakes. 

Here's what Disney has to say about its new sci-fi commentary on simulated reality:
Tron Legacy is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn, the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn, looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years.  Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (OLIVIA WILDE), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber-universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
And here's what we - and Disney - are stoked to show ya:

Directed by Joseph Kosinski, Tron: Legacy opens December 17th, 2010.  (To turn our Tron Lightcycle image into an awesomely futuristic desktop wallpaper, right click to enlarge and then once more to save.)
