Résumé de l'éditeur

In the highly anticipated Tron: Legacy, the Walt Disney Company reintroduces the Tron universe to the world 28 years after the original film amazed audiences with its striking visual style and landmark special effects. Director Joseph Kosinski and his team of artists and designers took inspiration from the memorable and elegant design of Tron (1982) and employed the most ground-breaking filmmaking techniques available to create a world unlike anything that has ever been seen on the big screen. Using a mixture of live action, 3-D photography, and photorealistic computer-generated imagery, Tron: Legacy will provide audiences with a highly-immersive experience that blurs the line between what is real and what is illusion.

Starring Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, and Olivia Wilde, Tron: Legacy is an epic adventure and high-energy thrill ride set in a vast digital landscape. It’s a father-son story about Sam Flynn (Hedlund), the 27 year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Bridges), who is pulled into the same brave new world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games that his father navigated in the original Tron. Sam, along with his father and a daring female program named Quorra, embark on an adventure across this visually-stunning world that has become far more advanced, and far more dangerous.

The Art of Tron: Legacy features sketches, concept artwork, storyboards, and final rendered frames from the film to give a glimpse into the elaborate movie-making process and to showcase the incredible artistry and talent required to bring the Tron universe to life. It is certain to appeal to Tron fans, movie-goers, artists, and designers alike.

The 160-page high-end book, The Art of Tron: Legacy takes fans inside the art and design of the upcoming film Tron: Legacy. The book will showcase beautiful concept illustrations, set designs, character bios, images from the film, and an afterword by the film's director, Joseph Kosinski. The landscape trim format, striking jacket image and a color treatment made specifically to bring the world of Tron to life, make this stunning addition to anyone's collection.
