Last fall’s “Tron Legacy” was one of the most anticipated movies of all time. From the teaser film released at Comic-Con International in San Diego years before to the elaborate events staged across the country, “Tron Legacy” was one of the most unique films in recent memory — and that’s before you factor in the special effects. But for “Tron” fans, this was something they’ve been waiting for since 1982. And they weren’t alone.
For actor Bruce Boxleitner, the resurgence of the “Tron” franchise 15+ years after the original was a chance to continue the story and give back to the fans who have approached him throughout the years expressing their love for the original film and the desire for more.
Although he starred in two major television hits in “Scarecrow & Mrs. King” and “Babylon 5,” Boxleitner will always be best remembered by the world at large as the computer program that fought for the users. Today’s release of “Tron Legacy” on Blu-ray and DVD offers both the final iteration of the 2010 film as well as a look into the future with the series of new short films Boxleitner shot for the collection. He talks about all of this and more after the jump.
