Bruce Boxleitner confirms original TRON on Blu-ray in November?


TRON to rez up on Blu-ray this November?Tron-Sector reports breaking news out of Canada’s Sci-Fi Fan Expo today that actor Bruce Boxleitner confirmed the original 1982 cult hit TRON will finally get its Blu-ray release this November. Currently FilmEdge cannot confirm such news with any hard data from Walt Disney Studios, and no mention of TRON appears on their latest Home Entertainment release schedule, so we’re filing this story under Hi-Res Rumors until we get official details.

Whenever Steven Lisberger’s groundbreaking film finally does see the laser light of Blu-ray, it’s sure to be in high demand. TRON, last seen on Disney’s two-disc 20th Anniversary DVD edition in 2002, has since gone in home video hibernation until a new HD transfer began airing in limited runs on HDNet Movies channel in the past year.

This appeared a natural prelude to TRON’s eventual Blu-ray release, but then again George Lucas’ STAR WARS films have been screening in high-def on SpikeTV for months and they won’t land on Blu-ray until 2011. So a cable-aired HD transfer doesn’t guarantee an impending Blu release either.

The interest and demand are there, but  the question remains exactly when TRON will rez up on Blu-ray? FilmEdge will stay on top of this story and post hard details and Blu-ray specs when officially released.

  2. It would make sense to release Tron on Blu-Ray near the release of Legacy. Perhaps Mr.
    Boxleitner was interviewed for the Blu-ray? He was excited about it and spilled the beans. One can only speculate.
