In the weeks leading up to the release of TRON: Legacy, people started to wonder why Disney was keeping the 1982 original TRON out of sight of today’s audiences, perhaps fearful of people reacting negatively to what they perceived as dated special effect work. In reality, Disney was probably holding off a release in order to bring it back out on home video in conjunction with TRON: Legacy.
While Disney still hasn’t officially confirmed a release date for TRON on on blu-ray, some alleged cover art has surfaced today. And I have to say, I’m not terribly impressed with it. Personally, I would hope that they would go with the original 1982 poster art. It’s striking and iconic enough that Disney echoed it with one of their poster designs for the new film. If anything, it would help visually tie the two products together. But for the meantime, take the below cover art as rumor.
