Here I made a comparison of various TRON designs and here I talked about the lesser-known but absolutely brilliant 2003 installment of this fascinating universe.

TRON, TRON 2.0 and TRON: LEGACY comparison / sci-fi designs

As if I haven’t published enough posts about TRON universe just recently, here’s more of it. A quick comparison between ”TRON” (1982 movie), ”TRON 2.0” (2003 videogame) and ”TRON: Legacy” (2010 movie).

(Am I the only one who thinks the images on the right look…just a little duller?)

However, the latter disc designs are an exception. They look pretty cool.

The light cycles look awesome too. In all versions.

Note that in 1982 they didn’t wear a helmet when riding the light cycle, but just the same helmet as in any other scene. The same applies to 2003.

Let’s hope for the sequel, it seems we have all grounds for it now.

The original 1979 poster.

The Black Hole” was the the first Disney movie with a PG rating. “At $20 million, plus another $6 million for the advertising budget, it was at the time the most expensive picture ever produced by Disney. The movie earned nearly $36 million at the North American box office, making it the 21st highest-grossing film of 1979″, says Wiki.

I really loved this comment to the post by Wolfman which just says it all: “One of my favs as a kid and still love it with a passion. The effects and print still hold up today. I watched it on blu-ray a few years back. Has to be one of Disney’s darkest movies, well that and The Hunchback of Notre Dame!! “Hellfire” jeepers. Two of the best robots too. Who couldn’t love Roddy Mcdowall voicing VINCENT and Slim Pickins playing the broken southern BOB. Incidentally I’m posting a mix later of a robot music mix i’ve done featuring those two and few other robotic friends from film.”
