To promote the new movie Tron: Legacy, Disney is putting up a real-life “Flynn’s Arcade” from the original Tron movie. If you were lucky enough to go to Comic-Con you may have seen the one they had there, which I hear was basically an exact replica. I can only assume this uses the same setup.

“From a dazzling dance club under the stars to an authentic recreation of Flynn’s Arcade to some radical gaming, it’s like nowhere else on the grid! Each night, we’ll feature live entertainers, complete with lasers, glow accessories and the hottest music ever to rock the grid. ElecTRONica is “the” place to dance the night away in a fantastic world that only Disney can create. Highlights for the entire family will definitely be Flynn’s Video Arcade, face painting and the TRON: Evolution video game area. ElecTRONica will transform Disney California Adventure park Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays this Fall. TRON fans and families can also enjoy the party seven days a week during Thanksgiving week and Christmas week.”–Disney Parks Blog

In 1984, something was created that from then on would cause an overwhelming feeling of excitement in each and every person when they went to see a Disney Pixar film. That something was “The Adventures of André and Wally B” – Pixar’s first short (well sort of). John Lasseter made groundbreaking work involving the short tale of the cute characters of André and Wally B, using incredibly emotion and charm from a computer at the time. From then on, Lasseter played a huge focus to Pixar’s success and with now around 20 shorts, each evolving into something greater, more entertaining and completely original each time, they’re a big part to our cinema-going experience every time we set out to see a new Pixar film. “Day and Night”, the latest of the little features has an immense amount of work gone into every detail making it possibly the most memorable and most appealing to audiences. Taking this out, I have explored the different shorts and come up with a top five which you must watch in order to gain the real satisfaction of the artwork these films use. (more…)

Trailer Review:
[Reviewed by: Alex Miller]
[Update: Review Added]

The new Tron Legacy trailer was released today by Disney at Comic-Con! I wish I could say this trailer made me more excited to see this movie, but frankly that’s not possible. The last time I had this much nerdy anticipation for a sequel was when Matrix: Reloaded was coming out. Needless to say that didn’t turn out so well. The original Tron was groundbreaking to say the least, but honestly hasn’t held up well over time. I’m still able to look past how dated it has become, but I doubt most can. In fact, I bet most either haven’t seen the original or can’t remember it. Who cares if you get what’s going on in the new one right? It has awesome special effects, a ridiculously hott chick, and a nerdy sci-fi story. Did I mention it has awesome special effects? I mean that dude’s shirt has more lights than a football stadium. Why does everything have lights on it? I mean I know it’s a video game, but seriously. Is there a rave afterwards? What’s the deal?
