Comic-Con 2010: Cast and Crew Talk Tron Legacy

Everyone wants to know more and more about Tron Legacy. For those of you not at Comic-Con, we have transcribed the entire Tron Legacy panel which took place on Thursday. Here is the panel’s official description:

Returning for an unprecedented third year to the fans and convention that started it all, Walt Disney Pictures is pleased to present a special insider look at the upcoming TRON: Legacy. Panelists include filmmakers and talent from the film: director Joe Kosinski, producers Sean Bailey and Steven Lisberger, and cast members Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Michael Sheen, and Bruce Boxleitner. The discussion, moderated by Patton Oswalt, is set to include exclusive glimpses of the film, as well as a Q&A involving all panel participants, along with special surprise guests.

Michael Sheen: First of all, beejenkies [sp] there’s a lot of you here! Wow! And also, I thought everyone was supposed to dress up as a character when they came, so I came as Jeff Bridges and he shaved his beard off! What’s going on!


Yeah, I’ve got used to living in a sort of slightly false reality, because I live in LA now. So that helped with the film.


And also, I’d like to correct something. It’s actually a 4D film because Jeff Bridges brings an extra dimension of awesomeness, so it’s the first 4D film. And I believe the 27 year gap between the two films, I think for Michael Douglas between Wall Street 1 and Wall Street 2, there was a 230 year gap.

Patton: Oh, wow! That’s interesting! I didn’t know that!

Michael Sheen: Yeah. But yeah, in terms of playing in sort of the environment, the sort of created fantasy environment, this, without a doubt, beats everything else. In fact, coming down in the car yesterday, I had the schedule for the whole thing here. And just seeing the TRON logo at the top of it made me, “Oh, I’m in TRON! I’m in TRON!” Because when I first saw the film when I was like 11, it was just…it had a massive effect on me. So to end up here with these guys is just amazing.
