Wow, that was definitely the biggest party I’ve ever thrown! It was great seeing many of you dressed in costumes and seeing so many Disney Parks Blog and TRON fans in one place at last night’s ElecTRONica Meet-Up.
Meet-Up guests were treated to complimentary admission to Disney California Adventure park and the full ElecTRONica experience just for this group. The full ElecTRONica experience included several performances, like Laserman and our Power Surge show, a DJ emceeing the event and providing some great dance music, access to all the ‘80s games at Flynn’s Arcade and the 3-D preview of “TRON: Legacy.”
Attendees of the ElecTRONica Meet-Up also had several extra-special opportunities, including a signing with “TRON: Legacy” screenwriters, viewing of select props from the upcoming movie, a unique privilege to dress up in TRON costumes at the event and an exclusive, limited edition Flynn’s Arcade Token.
Some of the props on display from “TRON: Legacy” included one costume that had never been displayed before last night. The all-white costume, worn by Jeff Bridges, who plays Kevin Flynn in both the original and latest film, was also accompanied by actual Black Guard and Rinzler helmets worn by characters in the movie.
Many hard-core TRON fans made sure to check-in early to reserve spots for the signing opportunity with Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, the screenwriters for “TRON: Legacy.” Eddy and Adam posed for photos with guests and even answered a few questions for our Twitter followers.
Some Twitter followers were interested in knowing if it was necessary to remember, or be familiar with, the original film in order to understand and enjoy the new one. Eddy said that he and Adam tried to ensure that “TRON: Legacy” honored the first film and preserved some of the original’s DNA, but not so much that newer fans would be unable to enjoy it. “TRON: Legacy” will appear in theaters Dec. 17.
We also saw that many Twitter followers gave us a shout-out on Twitter last night. We’re glad you enjoyed the experience and we appreciate the great feedback.
If you attended the meet-up last night, tell us about your experience. Did you meet someone new? Are there any cool stories from last night that you’d like to share? If you were unable to attend, we really hope to see you next time.
