They had better advertise this one better than it's prequel. If they don't, I will
I'm not trying to be a downer, but I'm more cautiously opitmistic about this sequel, as I explain below:
In reference to my last post, I kinda (maybe - we'll see next year or in 2011)jumped the gun with my desires to see a new TRON chapter, BEFORE reading a detailed description of what was shown: according to many of the accounts, it sounds like a yellow program (either Flynn or Clu, since Clu was originally yellow), is chasing a blue program. The blue program has a blue lightcycle while the yellow program has a yellow lightcycle. The yellow program surprises the blue program, and the blue program crashes into the light trail of the yellow program's light cycle. The blue program is thrown onto the ground from the crash, while the yellow program, revealed to be either Flynn or Clu, walks up to the blue program, as the blue program begs for his life. The yellow program pulls a Clint Eastwood and hurls a yellow disc at the unlucky blue program. Meanwhile, during all this, it is said that either Flynn (or Clu ?) is watching from above, from a window.
Now, while on the surface this sounds cool, here's where my uncertainty lies, based on established elements of the TRON universe (I haven't played Tron 2.0 yet, forgive if my details are a little off):
1)In the original TRON, the blue programs were the programs that were being oppressed by the red programs, led by Sark and the MCP;
2)The yellow programs were (according to the Tron wiki) independent programs;
3)In the first film, the blue light cycles were ridden by the evil (red) programs;
4)As we all know, Jeff Bridges technically played 3 characters:
i)Kevin Flynn#1 - ex- Encom employee
ii)Kevin Flynn#2 - the ex-Encom employee sucked into
the game grid;
iii)Clu - Kevin Flynn's security program whose attempt
at finding the incriminating file (against Dilinger) is
thwarted when the green tank programs destroy
his tank, then the red guards capture him, and
the MCP derezzes him during an interrogation;
Knowing those established facts, I MUST ask:
1)Why is a yellow program killing a blue program?
2)Is Flynn having a bad dream? It's said that he's either in a meditative or dream state. Is he the one looking out the window from above?
3)Is Clu the one looking out from the window above?
4)As in the original screenplays (at least up to the 4th draft), are the Blue programs now the evil programs?
5)Are the formerly independent yellow programs now the evil programs?
6)Is this vision that Flynn or Clu sees ,caused by the disorientation and distress that going back and forth between the two sides of the screen can cause, the reason why a yellow program would kill a blue one?
7)Did some of the blue programs cross over to the dark side of the realm of the red programs?
8)Were all the red programs de-rezzed at the end of the first film? I'm assuming that maybe that was the case, as everything red was turning blue.
I'm sorry for this long post, but being that I, like many, am one of the many TRON fans who was around when the original came out in '82, and also knowing how Hollywood can screw up sequels and/or remakes (I recently heard confimation of A remake of another '82 debut classic, "Poltergeist" - WTF?!!!!!), and reading about the changes I perceived in the trailer (as explained above), I wonder if this sequel will be good. To paraphrase Ricky Ricardo, Disney, "You got some 'splainin to do!". End of line.
