But it will not be based on the continuation of what took place in the original TRON timeline, right? There will be no story built upon what started in 1982, only a new story that takes place in today's time, and that is called "TRON", right?
It really seems to be like what they did with the "new BSG". The new is not build upon the original, but an updating or re-inventing of it with some of the original premise and character names, but mostly new made up stuff. I'm guessing that is what the new "TRON" will be, only a completely different set of events that leads to the trip inside the digital world, along with completely new and different characters.
Unless I'm wrong about this, I'm quite uninterested again.
That's cool though.
For those who dig the idea of a new "TRON", updated for today's generation, I'll pretty much keep my mouth shut. The idea is not interesting to me. I don't want to see a new "TRON". I'd much rather see something built on the foundation of 1982's events, even if the original is only loosely tied in (so long as the sequel was a worthy production). A true sequel seems to be a dead concept. But an all new "TRON" is not something I find interesting. I don't care to see "TRON" re-invented for today's generation.
Having said that, I'll try real hard not to rain on anyone else's excitement about the project.
