Flynn Lives in new ten minute Tron short

Mar. 14, 2011by:

If you thought TRON LEGACY was heavy on visuals and a bit light on story, here's a little nugget that might satiate you for the time being.

It's a short film called FLYNN LIVES, and it appears on the TRON LEGACY Blu-ray this April, and serves the dual purpose of being a bit of a bridge between the two films, as well as a glimpse of what happened in the moments immediately following the new movie.

It's a story of corporate espionage, done by the mysterious hooded "ZackAttack" who isn't exactly Banksy, and no, it's not the character you think it is.

If you're a TRON fan, check out the short below, and prepare yourself for the inevitable sequel, as LEGACY did end up making almost $400M worldwide.

Extra Tidbit: "ZackAttack"? Sounds like my little brother's AIM screen name.

They should have worked this into the movie somehow. I would definitely see another Tron if they worked on balancing the amazing visual aesthetic with dialogue that doesn't sound like it was written by an orangutan's fart.

I'm (apparently) of the few that absolutely loved Legacy, so this is right up my alley. Hopefully we get a sequel post-haste and get everyone back into the action. I'd love to see the story have a complete ending after another movie or two, maybe the end of the world and birth of a new one or something, so that it can finish and tell one complete saga, a'la Star Wars.

Pretty cool. I loved Legacy and can't wait for a sequel. Bringing back the original "programs" is a good idea. Love it.

Cool video! I loved Legacy also, and would likely be interested in one more movie.

I have mixed feelings about this video. I really liked the subject matter of the video (i.e. everything that was in it). However, why was it shot on a shitty video camera? This short should have been shot on 35mm film. What, Disney couldn't muster up 10 minutes of film for this short piece?

I'm surprised at how many people here loved Legacy.

You mean you loved the effects? Or the fact that 90% of the main character's dialogue was one-liners?

Apart from the visuals and the music, I thought Legacy was just plain terrible.

Show, Don't Tell

I liked the music and visual effects of Legacy very much.

But let's be honest, the script blew. Way too much exposition. Good movies show rather than tell.

Sometimes I think today's screen writers watched too many soap operas with their moms when they were kids.

Having said that, I'd give another Tron a go.

Cool to see what happened between Tron and Tron Legacy. I like the documentary style. Cool that this little short film does not want to be more than it is.

I'm a huge fan of the original fan....

This short was pretty awesome. We see Bruce Boxleitner, and the actor who portrayed Ram from the original Tron.

For the sequel, I hope they come up with a stronger story than 'Tron: Legacy'.

Also...

I'd also like to add, that with all the exposition in Legacy, I think it would work better as the 1st act in a new 3 part trilogy.

So if the screenwriters can get their act together, they can save Legacy by doing 2 more Trons, rather than just 1 more and leaving Legacy as the 2nd act.

In this way, the original Tron can act as The Hobbit does to the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

After all, there was a butt load of exposition in Fellowship of the Ring too, but it worked as the 1st act in a
