Greetings, programs! The computer worlds of Tron: Legacy and the original Tron are making their way off the Grid and into the real world this year, and a few details of their home release appear to have leaked online.
While no official announcements have been made
and no for-sale street dates are available yet, box art and packaging information seems to have been discovered.
Update:This Amazon.com pre-order suggests the films will be available for sale on April 5, 2011.
Update 2: Amazon has now posted three versions for pre-order: Collector’s Edition with both films ($69.99), Tron: Legacy 4-disc combo ($34.99), and Tron: Legacy 5-disc combo with both films ($55.99). A $5 coupon is also available on Amazon for all three of these items.
Tron fans can expect several different releases of both films this year. Both Tron: Legacy and Tron: The Original Classic (as it’s being called) will be made available individually and in combo packs.
Tron: Legacy will show up as a combo pack featuring the usual Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital Copy versions plus Blu-ray 3D. Another combo pack will also be available without 3D. The original “classic” Tron should be available in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack at the same time. The two will be made available together in a 5-disc combo pack as well.
For the biggest fans, “The Ultimate TRON Experience” will be a limited edition release that features all the discs cleverly packaged in an Identity Disc case – and yes, it will light up!
Again, none of this has been confirmed by Disney, so specific art and details may change.
The street date is expected to be around May or June.
Despite not being officially announced by Disney, you can pre-order Tron: Legacy on Amazon now in the collector’s edition for around $70.
End of line.
