In July 2009, after a 27-year-hiatus, the story of Tron began anew when Flynn's Arcade reopened at Comic-Con. The Flynn Lives alternate reality game, created by 42 Entertainment, was the beginning of an elaborate lead-in to 2010's Tron: Legacy, a live-action 3-D movie with unprecedented digital effects. As the original Tron, released in 1982, became a cult classic, Disney struggled for years to devise a followup. When they finally came up with the right story, they decided to tell it not just on the movie screen but through a variety of media experiences, including video games and the ARG. The goal was to recreate Tron as an immersive world for fans to explore as deeply as they like. Long championed by 42 Entertainment and by producer Sean Bailey at LivePlanet (his partnership with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck), this ambitious new form of storytelling has now been embraced by Disney and by a new generation of Tron fans. But how does it really work? At this panel the key players involved will explain their ambitions, their motivations, the lessons they've learned, and the difficulties they've confronted as they pioneer a new form of narrative for the 21st century.
Let the purveyors of the new scary engage you with their fresh, exciting takes on the ever-evolving horror genre.
