Tron: Legacy is a 2010 American science fiction action film directed by Joseph Kosinski, in his feature directorial debut, from a screenplay written by Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, based on a story by Horowitz, Kitsis, Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal. It is a sequel to the 1982 film Tron, whose director Steven Lisberger returned to produce. The cast includes Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner reprising their roles as Kevin Flynn and Alan Bradley, respectively, as well as Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, James Frain, Beau Garrett and Michael Sheen. The story follows Flynn’s adult son Sam, who responds to a message from his long-lost father and is transported into a virtual reality called “the Grid,” where Sam, his father, and the algorithm Quorra must stop the malevolent program Clu from invading the real world.


The only way to win is to survive.

The son of a virtual world designer goes looking for his father and ends up inside the digital world that his father designed. He meets his father’s corrupted creation and a unique ally who was born inside the digital world.

TRON: Legacy is the sequel to TRON (1982) which featured the iconic Light Cycles designed by Syd Meade. In the new film, the Light Cycles were brought to life for a new generation by German concept designer and artist Daniel Simon.
