Although purists claim cult classic Tron can’t be tampered with, this news might just change their minds. French superstars and ‘80s revivalists Daft Punk have recorded 24 new tracks for the sequel, titled Tron 2: Legacy.
The groundbreaking 1982 animation hit was originally scored by electronic music icon Wendy Carlos. To make things even more exciting, at Comic-Con 2009 in San Diego, director Joseph Kasinski recently revealed, “There would definitely be Daft Punk Tron-themed events on the horizon,” meaning: a Daft Punk tour supporting Tron 2. Incredible.
Tron 2: Legacy isn’t due for release until 2011, but to hold you over we have included a trailer below. It speaks for itself — mind-blowing stuff!
