"TRON: Evolution": The Video Game

"TRON: Evolution", the upcoming video game supporting the Vancouver-lensed feature "TRON: Legacy", is a 3rd person action-adventure game "that pulls the player into the unique digital world of 'TRON', navigating among unique rebel factions, while fighting an epic battle against a dictator’s seemingly unstoppable army..."

The game’s story prequels “TRON: Legacy” events and provides insight into the film’s past. As an integrated entertainment experience, the film will reference elements of the game’s story. “TRON: Legacy” film director Joseph Kosinski also consulted on the vision for the debut video game trailer, which includes computer graphics that were created by the same company that will provide the film’s CG animations.

As part of the connection between the game and film, actress Olivia Wilde stars as 'Quorra' in "TRON: Evolution", with her voice/likeness providing players with another direct link to the film as they discover how earlier events within the world of TRON shape her character’s future.

“These games offer unique experiences within the TRON universe that are ideal for their individual platforms,” said Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global marketing, Disney Interactive Studios.

“TRON is an exciting, dynamic property that appeals to interactive entertainment fans of all ages.”
