TR2N Gets A New Name And Some Plot Hints

It looks as if someone at Disney has come to realization that TR2N is a terrible title for their upcoming sequel to the groundbreaking 1981 Tron.

Unfortunately,¬†the new name they’ve picked is even worse.


Now granted, when the original movie came out not a lot of people were able to make heads or tails out of what its name meant. Perhaps in the years to come after its release, TRZ will seem as¬†absolutely natural as Tron does today. Of course, there’s still plenty of time left to change it again.

News of the film’s name change comes to us from the new issue of Production Weekly, which also had this to say about the film’s plot-

After being transported into the surreal landscape of a mainframe computer to destroy an intruder (Tron), a programmer finds himself allied with the leader of a rebellion against a corrupt cyber-entity.

Are we to infer that the programmer is initially drawn in to the cyberworld of the main to fight Tron but realizes that he is actually the good guy and switches sides to defeat the “corrupt cyber-entity”? I’m not sure, but it sounds promising.
